Automatic Enclosure CAD Template Generator

The Template Generator is a free, easy-to tool to help you design faster, because you’ll be starting with a design that can be manufactured by Protocase. We’ll design a blank enclosure in your required material and dimensions, and email it to you.

Open the blank template in your CAD software of choice, and customize with cutouts, fasteners, brackets, partitions, hardware and graphics. Send it to us when you’re ready to quote your design!

By default, rackmount CAD templates will have a front panel with the full U height you specified. However, the side panels and rear outside height will be 0.25” (6.35mm) shorter than the front panel. This ensures proper clearance when the rackmount enclosure is installed in a cabinet with other rackmount enclosures.

If you require a full-height rackmount chassis (i.e. you want your rackmount enclosure’s side and rear to be the same height as the front panel), adjust the dimensions once you’ve imported the template into your CAD software.
