Default template

Every new file created in Flexijet Stone/FlexiCAD is based on the Default Template file, specified in ‘General Preferences’. The template drawing is primarily used to increase the working comfort and there-by reduce the measurement time. Templates can be created for different measuring situations. For example, you can create a template for a complete house measurement, in which a suitable folder structure is created in advance.

To create customize or create a new custom template drawing, proceed as follows:

  • Open the desired template file you wish to customize in FlexiCAD/Flexijet Stone. This template is typically located in C:\ProgramData\Flexijet\FlexiCAD\templates\FXJ-Template-inch.vdf
  • Customize the dimensions, text and point styles according to your preferences.
  • Assign specific colours, line types, and line widths (Pen widths)
  • Note that template files must be saved in the .vdf format.
  • Specify the template to be used in new drawings under ‘General Preferences>CAD Preferences>Template Drawing’.

General Preferences with Template Drawing highlighted

There are two options for starting a new drawing from a template:

First: You define the new template drawing as a standard template as specified in “General Preferences”. This is always used when you start FlexiCAD or if you click on the command “New”.

Second: If you have created more drawing templates and do not want to use your standard template, then click on the command “New from template”. A window with the various saved templates opens. Select the desired template and click “OK”.
