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, go to SOLIDWORKS Tools version > Costing Template Editor version.
    • With a part open:
      1. Click Costing (Tools toolbar or the Evaluate tab on the CommandManager) or Tools > SOLIDWORKS Applications > 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 As Limited Access Copy.
    You might have to click Save As instead of Save .
  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.
