When importing non-SolidWorks part or assembly files from clients or vendors the SolidWorks templates used for the file conversion can be specified. Instead of having to open and change units, precision, or add file properties on every single imported part save some time with this tip.
In order to adjust the templates that SolidWorks uses for imported files select Tools > Options > System Options > Default Templates. Under Default Template you can map the preferred part and assembly template for SolidWorks to use during the import process.
Or instead of always using a specific template you could select the setting ‘Prompt the user to select document template’. With this setting enabled SolidWorks will prompt you for which template to use the next time you import a file.
