Template Setup


Recommended Posts

Hey folks,


I am working on setting up a custom template for my team in connectCAD so that they dont have to redo the legwork of setting things up as we need and adding the devices we regularly use to the device builder. If I create a template from my version, will the device builder information follow the file? Or is this specific to the user?

Hello @Sarajs,


The Data in the Device Builder is stored in the user folder, so it is user specific. Additionally, you can have a shared workgroup folder with your colleagues and move your device database file in there, so that your colleagues can see it. Additionally, the devices that you have created in your template should be present in there in the Resource Manager as symbols, which could be inserted with the Device Tool and the Symbol Insertion Mode, or simply using drag&drop from the resource manager. So if your colleagues start from your template they can easily use these device symbols instead of the device builder.


Let me know if you need any additional information.


Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov
