Creating a Limited-access Costing Template

You can create a limited-access Costing template to share with other users. You can select limited-access templates in the Costing Task Pane, but you cannot view or edit them in the Costing Template Editor application.

To create a limited-access Costing template for a part:

  1. To open a Costing template, do one of the following:
    • From the Windows Start menu, click All Programs > SolidWorks version > SolidWorks Tools > Costing Template Editor version.
    • With a part open:
      1. Click Costing tool_costing_tools.gif (Tools toolbar or the Evaluate tab on the CommandManager) or Tools > Costing.
      2. In the Costing Task Pane, select a template to save, and click Launch Template Editor.
  2. In the Costing Template Editor application, in an open template, click Save Save Standard > Save As Limited Access Copy .

    You might have to click Save As Tool_Save_As_Standard.gif instead of Save Save Standard .

  3. In the Save As dialog box, for File name, enter a name and click Save.

    The template is saved as a protected .zip file.

  4. Close the Costing Template Editor application.
