Autodesk released Vault2023.2, which includes high-value functionality new features and enhancements based on user role, designed to make your product data management easier than ever. Here are some of the highlights:
For authors: users of Inventor and other CAD design tools will enjoy many tool tip enhancements
For administrators: the new Vault thin client admin settings will make it easier for you to connect remote users
For participants who are non-CAD users: the new Vault thin client enhancements will ensure you have better ways to easily provide feedback
Thin Client Enhancements
Many improvements are made to make the overall search experience more efficient and intuitive.
You can use the following search features:
Locate files and folders in different workspaces. The current workspace is automatically selected when you click the Search bar.
Use Basic Search to look for any property that contains the search keyword. You can perform the search in the current folder and/or include subfolders or find the latest version of the file and items only. By default, the "Include Subfolders" option is selected.
Use Advanced Search to create complex queries with multiple search criteria. A search criterion consists of a property, a condition, and a value.
Save the advanced search with desired criteria to your bookmark in your web browser and reuse them quickly.
Use expand/collapse in the Advanced Search panel to view/hide the search parameters. By default, the search panel is expanded.
Set default columns
As an administrator, you can now configure the required columns and enforce the same for all users. When enforced, non-admin users cannot change the default columns.
Select Vault to connect
Vault 2023.2 allows you to view all available vaults and select the vault you need to connect to at the time of signing in to the Thin Client. The vault name in the URL changes upon selecting a vault. You can also change vaults in the Thin Client interface after signing in to the Thin Client.
Punch Tool from Vault (Inventor Vault Add-in)
A new "Punch Tool from Vault" command is added to the Sheet Metal tab in Inventor. It enables you to browse for a 3D iFeature shape from the Vault to be inserted into the sheet metal face.
Sheet Metal Punch tools are iFeatures with extra attributes that cut simple or complex hole shapes in the face of your part, including across a bend. You must have a 2D sketch with at least one hole center point before using the Punch Tool from Vault command.
