Routing Templates

After adding SolidWorks Routing, the first time you create an assembly document the software creates a routing template.

This template includes settings from the standard assembly template, and also parameters used for routing.

The new routing template, routeAssembly.asmdot, is located in the default template folder, for example C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SolidWorks\SolidWorks<version>\templates.

You can create and save custom routing templates. These custom templates can be selected when you begin a new assembly. You can also make one of the custom routing templates the default template for new route assemblies. Custom routing templates can specify different drafting standards, dimensions, units and other properties.
