Re: How to Create a Custom Product Template

The problem is that system cann't initialize your domain. you had defined "DomainStructure", but you make me confused that why did you annotate it.

<!-- Example (This is not created by default)

<DomainStructure>

<domainLevel>

<domainName>Engineering</domainName>

<domainLevel>

<domainName>Supplier</domainName>

</domainLevel>

</domainLevel>

<domainLevel>

<domainName>Manufacturing</domainName>

</domainLevel>

<domainLevel>

<domainName>Sales</domainName>

</domainLevel>

<domainLevel>

<domainName>Management</domainName>

</domainLevel>

<domainLevel>

<domainName>Contract Mfg</domainName>

</domainLevel>

</DomainStructure>

-->

you should delete the <!-- --> tags and then make the initialization of DomainStructure enable.

Re: How to Create a Custom Product Template

Not sure about Windchill 10.0 but in 9.1 the easiest and quickest way that we found was:

  • Create a new product in Windchill - We called ours "New Product template"
  • Set up all your folders, teams etc. in that product.
  • Now go to the details view of that product and either Export the zip or save as template from the menu.
  • Once you have saved the "product template" you will now see it in your organizations templates under the "product" filter view.
  • If you export and save the file than simply go to your organizations product templates and then create a new template and load the file that you exported.
