How to save a template object in PowerMill

A template object can be saved from one project and imported into another. These can contain tools, Patterns, Workplanes, Levels, and NC Preference


Template objects are exported settings that contain entities from the PowerMill Explorer. These template objects can be imported into a new project to reduce creating the same things over again. They also encourage consistency between projects and programmers.

  1. Got to the File tab > Save as > Template object
