This page is about the BuildCraft item. For the FTB Wiki's Templates, see Feed The Beast Wiki:All templates.


The Template is an item added by BuildCraft used to remember the shape of a structure for automatic building. It will not remember the type of blocks used; only the shape designed. This is unlike the Blueprint which will remember the type of blocks used.



After designing a structure in the Architect Table, name the Template using the middle bar. Then place a blank Template into the left slot. If the Template is unnamed, it will be numbered automatically instead.

In a Builder, place the Template into the left slot and place any type of desired block into the Builder's inventory. The Builder will then create the structure with whatever blocks are available.
