If you are wondering if Autodesk Vault can help you manage your AutoCAD projects and collaborate with team members, then check out these top reasons for Autodesk Vault for AutoCAD.
Benefits of Using Autodesk Vault
Autodesk Vault comes in two version, Vault Basic and Vault Professional and Design Consulting can deploy these systems on-premise or in the cloud.
- Data Centralisation
- Change Management
- Revision Tables
- Sheet Set Manager
- Copy Design
- View and Markup
Whether it’s Vault Basic or Vault Professional, your engineering data and related documents are stored centrally.
Files are stored on the Vault Server and users check them out which creates a local copy on their computer and when they are ready, they can check the file/s back into Vault and the latest version is stored on the Server.
Managers can audit and track the revision history of data files from a single location. This helps reduce the chance of design and construction errors by enabling the proactive release and tracking of files throughout the project lifecycle.
Team members access only the correct revision of data. As the project evolves, Autodesk® Vault Professional software captures predefined milestones in the project lifecycle, making it easier for users to revert back to a previous state and keep track of design
Vault users can use a range of methods, such as saved searches and shortcuts, to find and organize data. A user can search for a file name or search on attributes and custom properties to find the right file/s.
Control design data access with revision management. Audit and track the revision history of your data files from a single location. Reduce the chance of design and manufacturing errors by securely releasing and tracking files throughout the design cycle, helping make sure that team members access only the correct revision of data.
The process of manually updating the revision tables on drawings can be time-consuming, especially for changes that require simple property updates throughout the drawing’s lifecycle. The Vault Revision Table feature enables you to automatically update a drawing’s revision table data. Since multiple revision tables may exist in the same drawing, the Vault Revision Table feature tracks and updates all tables.
Sheet Set Manager
Sets of drawings are the primary deliverable for most design groups. Sets of drawings communicate the overall design intent of a project and provide the documentation and specifications for the project. However, managing sets of drawings manually can be complicated and time-consuming. The Sheet Set Manager integration enables you to store your sheets in a vault. You can also work on vaulted sheet sets online of offline.
Stop manually recreating or duplicating complex models and drawing sets, saving hours of design time. Using Autodesk data management software, you can copy a digital prototype—including all related files and documentation—for use in a new design. It’s easy to configure the files you want to replace, reuse, or copy.
Drawing files containing external references or links can be renamed and reorganized without breaking links between parent and child documents. Users are able to specify a new name and new numbering scheme based on a configurable set of tables.
View and Markup
Vault enables easy sharing and collaborating. Multisheet drawings are supported in the markup environment, which provides a rich feature set of tools. Once a markup is created, it can be shared and managed by Vault.
Vault provides a number of benefits for Autodesk AutoCAD users and all features except change management are found in Autodesk Vault Basic. Vault Professional offers revision control, lifecycle management, automatic numbering schemes a job processor to automate publishing of PDF, DWG and other file typ.es plus many other features with support for AutoCAD LT, AutoCAD Mechanical, Electrical, Civil 3D and Factory Design Utilities.
