reusable elements/templates?

I have a 3d printer and model things to print in OnShape.
Is there a way to make a customized work space that represents my printable volume in 3 dimensions?
This way I can model stuff and be able to tell if it fits into my printable volume w/o doing the math.
Maybe even with added lines that break it up into quarters. That way if I want I can model something in the top left quarter and it will print in the top left quarter of my printbed. I would like it to be a reusable template or precustomized workarea that I don't have to create every time I want to use it.

    Sure, create a part studio with the desired sketch then just copy and paste it into your documents as needed.
