Download MasterTemplate 1.0 – for ArchiCAD 10

Thank you for purchasing MasterTemplate (AMT). You may download this version by right-clicking and saving each file (see below) to your workstation. Read the „Executive Summary“ below for quick installation instructions.

NOTE: Other versions of MasterTemplate are available from the links in the sidebar menu.


MasterTemplate 1.0 is the original version of MasterTemplate. The version available from this page is set up for use in ArchiCAD 10 (USA version) only.

  • DOWNLOAD MasterTemplate (TPL file)
  • DOWNLOAD MasterTemplate SAMPLE PROJECT (PLN file)
  • DOWNLOAD MasterTemplate FOLDERS (Libraries, etc.)

The downloads include the base template, a sample project file, supporting libraries and modules, plus free library parts and textures. After downloading and unzipping the files, reassemble the contents into one folder:

NOTE – this screenshot is from AMT 1.1 for ArchiCAD 11, and includes an NCS-UDS folder and a Remodel project file, which are not part of AMT 1.0. It also includes the bonus free textures and free library parts – see below for the download links.


These are NOT included in any other downloads, since they are updated periodically. Please use these links to download, and check back from time to time for the latest version.

  • DOWNLOAD the MasterTemplate QuickStart Guide
  • DOWNLOAD the MasterTemplate Manual


  • DOWNLOAD FREE LIBRARY PARTS (from various sources).
  • DOWNLOAD FREE TEXTURES (from Graphisoft GDL Depository)

NOTE: The FREE TEXTURES are a large download (>150 mb).


Download the appropriate zip file and extract into a folder, and place into a single MasterTemplate (AMT) folder on your workstation or file server. Extract the contents of each zip archive.

IMPORTANT: These files and folders may end up inside subfolders – if so, move them up to the „top level“ so they are all next to each other in the same AMT folder (see screenshot above). This folder can be placed wherever you find it convenient, but a great place is in your JOBS or PROJECTS folder on your local computer or on your server.

Open the MasterTemplate SAMPLE Project.pln file to start exploring how the template is set up. To start using the template system, open the MasterTemplate 1.0 TEMPLATE.tpl file and customize with your company logo and title block, etc. Read the QuickStart Guide for more quick tips, and the Manual for more in-depth explanation.
