When you create a Autodesk Inventor LT file, you use a template to set the measurement units of the file, specify common file properties, and include elements or even content that is common between files.
You can develop as many templates as you need and make them available for creating new files.
When you import AutoCAD files in Autodesk Inventor LT, you can choose templates to use in the Import Destination Options dialog box for creating the part and drawing files that result.
A drawing becomes a template when you save it in the Templates folder. For example, if you have a drawing file that contains the setup you want to use for other drawings, save a copy of it in the Autodesk\Inventor LT [version]\Templates folder. The next time you create a drawing file, the new template is available.
Tips for creating templates for imported DWG files
- Remove any unwanted content from the templates. It can include sketch geometry, features, or standard drawing views.
- Set the measurement units and other document settings.
- Set file properties that are common to the files you import.
- In part templates, set up lighting and sheet metal styles.
- In drawing templates, set up drawing resources, dimension styles, text styles, and drafting standards.
