  • Nutanix DPTPB style stencils (G6 & G7)
    • Updated Mar 2, 2020
    • 6.55 MB
  • Customized version of dynamic shapes to fit my specific style of drawing
    • In most cases NOT the stencil you are looking for…
  • Rear view shapes have a different look
    • Shapes are enclosed within a “box” shape
      • To leave more room for running cables
      • Not compatible with standard 19″ racks
      • New feature
        • You can now hide the box
        • By using shape data pull-down menu
  • Simplified Switch Shapes
    • No port-assignment boxes anymore
      • I rarely used the feature
      • Much easier to add new switch shapes
  • G6 & G7 generation NX nodes
  • Switch, Rack shapes and more
  • Made with Visio 2016
    • Some features might not work with older Visio versions
  • Use supplied Templates or Sample drawings as a base for your drawing
    • Default Visio “Blank Drawing” will not work with DPTPB style stencils
      • Not in Scale
    • DPTPB style shapes are designed to be used with following page settings
      • 1:16 scale
      • imperial units (inches)
    • DPTPB style shapes are NOT designed to be used with any other scale than 1:16
      • Some elements like fonts or cable end shapes might not scale correctly if used with any other scale than 1:16
  • If exporting Visio images to PDF-format
    • Built-in Visio PDF capabilities produce funky results
      • either by saving as PDF or printing as PDF
    • It is highly recommended to use CutePDF instead
      • Much nicer PDF as a result

  1. I have had no luck in opening the PDFs and the Visio .vsdm files (examples) above. Can you please check the right format of the files are associated with the links? Thanks.

    1. Hi Scott, I am between jobs right now and don’t have access to Visio until Sep 1, so I cannot check Visio content. Most of the example PDF files seem to download just fine on my computer

      1. I get the Acrobat ‘could not open:’ and “because it is either not a supported file type or because the file is damaged…” on all PDF samples… all 10 files – both PDFs and the .vsdm files…

      2. Weird, I can download the files from dropbox and open them with either browser (chrome with win10) or adobe reader XI. Obviously for vdsm files you need Visio or Visio Viewer.
