    If you are using AutoCAD Structural Detailing then you will have noticed that there are a few different types of templates for Steel, Reinforcement and Formwork Drawings.

    To find where the template is set go into the options menu (type OP into command line or go through the Big A top left and click on the Options icon near the bottom).

    It should default to the UK Standards for all the templates.

    • Steel RBCS-044.dwt
    • Reinforcement RBCR-044.dwt
    • Formwork Drawings RBCX-044.dwt.


    I have listed in the table below the other templates and which is used for which country.

    Would be good if the templates were actually on the machine, our IT boys have somehow managed to install the software without the template files! I am having difficulty getting them to fix the problem. Does anyone no where i can download RBCR-44.dwt, RBCS-44.dwt and RBCX-44.dwt

    Hi Dodge: Default location for these is; C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\Autodesk\AutoCAD Structural Detailing 2013\enu\Template

    If they were not installed by default, you could copy them from this location on another machine, if this is not possible, your next best bet is to run a search on the installation media, this is the safest place to get the files from.
