Where can I get a 51U rack stencil for Visio?

I am looking for a good 51U rack Visio stencil.  Not one that is just a box, but one you'd want to show your boss after you've completed the rack diagram.

Cheers.

Hmm thanks, but I still need one that has a 51U rack stencil.  Those have at most 47U, been to those links prior to posting here.  Is there a 51U rack stencil in there I am just not seeing?

Actually, you don't need to download anything... the height of the standard Visio rack is based on a data value.

With the rack on the drawing page, open the Shape Data window. The first data value is the height in U's -- just change the value to 51 and press enter!

By the way, I should add one more thing to my answer above: the Visio rack shape is not included with Visio Standard. However, you will find the rack template and shapes in Visio Professional and Premium.

Right, so for Visio Standard, where can I get a 51u rack stencil.  I still cannot find one.  ;P

Your best bet, if you haven't done so already, is to go back to the vendor of the rack itself. Many equipment vendors offer downloadable stencils. If your vendor doesn't, then try other vendors of racks: Tripp Lite, Wright Line...

This thread: http://visguy.com/vgforum/index.php?topic=2203.0
on the Visio Guy web site includes a downloadable sample diagram that includes a 51U rack.

Other than that, the only one I can find that is adjustable is the one that comes with Visio Professional. And I'm afraid your option there is to upgrade from Standard to Pro.

It is ugly as sin, but it's a 51U.  Thanks.
