Creating and Using Manufacturing Templates

In the process manager, you can configure manufacturing templates based on existing steps, and then use these templates to create manufacturing steps in different models.
Manufacturing Templates
• Based on existing NC steps.
– Use in different manufacturing models.
• Workcell templates.
• Stored as XML files.
Using Manufacturing Templates
• Insert new NC steps.
– Step information taken from template.
– Configure missing items.
• Insert workcell templates.

• You can configure manufacturing templates based on existing steps, and then use these templates to create manufacturing steps in different models.
• Similarly, you can create workcell templates based on existing workcells, and then use these templates to create workcells in different models.
• Manufacturing templates are stored as XML files and contain information about NC steps or workcells.
Using Manufacturing Templates
• You can use manufacturing templates to insert new NC steps into the process table. The step names, tools, and parameters are derived from
the template.

• You need to select geometry references, although existing operation coordinate systems and retract planes are used by default. You can
configure missing elements after the step has been inserted.
• In the resources view, you can use workcell templates to insert new workcells. The workcell names, tools, and parameters are derived from
the template
