Template technology has a great contribution to domain of design, especially computer aided design. Based on existing technologies and methodology, authors have applied the concept of cooperative template to the study of visual design environment. A framework of visual design environment of cooperative template is introduced including cooperative template description, element constraint, working flow and parallel mechanism. Several instances like Die cooperative & Sofa are provided to demonstrate the features and utility of the design environment. As a new concept, result of application makes authors believe that cooperative template play an important role in information-reducing, relation-order and design efficiency in CSCD environment.
