SOLIDWORKS provides templates for parts, assemblies, and a variety of drawing styles. You can create custom templates by opening existing templates (or any document file), setting options and inserting items (title blocks, base parts, and so on), then saving the documents as templates.

Template files have the following extensions:
  • .prtdot (parts)
  • .asmdot (assemblies)
  • .drwdot (drawings)

The default template for the A size landscape drawing format includes standard formatting and text that you can edit in the drawing sheet format.
