The 2020 release marks the next step forward with enhanced design experience for CAD users such as vast copy design improvements, PDF enhancements, and installation now including language switch support.
Automate Design Creation
Getting new products to the market faster does not allow customers to waste valuable time recreating designs that already exist from scratch. At the same time creating a variation of an existing design can be a difficult process. Finding all the related data, figuring out what is going to be reused before you even start the design, and then trying to relink all the new data together is time-consuming. Copy Design helps you to automate the design creation, create all new files for you, as well as link all the data together. Designers using Autodesk Vault 2020 with vastly updated copy design will notice several ergonomic improvements as well as extended capabilities that will significantly accelerate their overall design creation and data management experience.
Also, Vault Professional removes some outstanding issues reported by customers like updating part number by default during the rename process.
Accelerate Design Documentation
Many companies use the PDF format of a 2D design file to facilitate internal communication among various departments. With this release of Vault we added options that enable design engineers to be more productive than ever when dealing with documentation of their design and sharing it.
Streamline Internal and External Collaboration
Customers leveraging Vault as their enterprise solution across the globe and beyond the firewall will benefit from several improvements. Project Sync within Vault Professional 2020 has been extended to support Vault customers in the infrastructure and civil engineering market for streamlined collaboration with their extended project team by having a bi-directional connection with BIM 360.
Finally, additional small but key improvements for internal collaboration are introduced like support for Inventor Read-only viewing for non-CAD users with the Vault client, language switching support for the Vault Client with individual language pack installations as well as Thin Client supporting other browsers than Internet Explorer.
Connect Your Teams
Enhance team productivity with support for team-based design. The Autodesk Vault product line lets you work closely with others on projects without putting design data at risk. Multi-user functionality lets you control access to design data so your entire workgroup-from managers to engineers and designers-can participate in the design process. You track and manage all data related to each digital prototype in one secure, central location. And because the Vault product family integrates with Autodesk design applications, it's easier and faster than ever to manage accurate data from concept through manufacturing.
You don't need to recreate the wheel. The Autodesk Vault family of products includes tools that help you reuse data and minimize rework, so you can develop products faster. Instead of starting a complex model or drawing set from scratch, use a similar digital prototype as a starting point for a new design. Vault Professional improves productivity with functions designed to help you track, find, and organize data quickly. Saved searches and shortcuts speed up data search, while productivity tools let you manipulate design files without breaking application-specific links. And data organization tools let you control indexing and access across file types-so you can improve data sharing and searching based on property sets.
Making changes doesn't have to interrupt your workflow-you can control design iterations from within your design application. The Vault product line captures the history of design concepts, so you can push the boundaries of your work, or revert to older revisions if needed. Then use Vault Professional to secure, release, and track data revisions-granting team members access to only the correct revisions of the files. With Vault Professional you maintain control over the digital prototype as it moves through the design and production process.
Data Management Tools
Vault Professional helps to accelerate development cycles and optimize your investment in design data with features that help you organize, manage, and track key design and release management processes. An enhanced set of features facilitates:
Data management for workgroups
Data search and reuse
Administration and configuration
Finish projects faster by enabling more engineers to work on the digital prototype without overwriting each other's data.
Best-in-Class Integration with Autodesk Design Software
Integrate the Autodesk Vault family of products with Autodesk design applications such as Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Mechanical, and AutoCAD software. This deep integration makes it easier to manage data associated with your digital prototype from engineering through manufacturing-saving time and helping to preserve data accuracy.
Tool to Manage Microsoft Office Documents
Vault Professional is fully integrated with Microsoft Office, including Office 2007. As a result, it's simpler to manage all aspects of digital prototyping, including specifications, calculations, and presentations. Your entire workgroup can collaborate on product development, which helps you get to market faster.
Team members can work on a digital prototype without overriding each other's data thanks to multiuser functionality. Team members check out a design before making modifications, then check it back in when they're done. With everyone working together, you can better balance resources, speed projects to completion, and meet tight deadlines.
Vault Access for Nondesigning Workgroup Members
Give every member of your team access to Vault Professional. Even non-CAD users can add, review, and manage data relevant to a digital prototype.
Preview Interactively with Autodesk Design Review
Publish design data as DWF files so non-CAD users can view, print, and mark them up using Autodesk Design Review software.
Quick and Simple Searching
Use a range of methods, such as saved searches and shortcuts, to find and organize data. Vault Professional minimizes the time it takes to find information, so you can spend more time designing and less time hunting for data.
Optimized Data Reuse
Save hours of design time-stop manually recreating or duplicating complex models and drawing sets. Vault Professional lets you copy a digital prototype- including all related files and documentation-for use in a new design. It also makes it easier to configure the files you want to replace, reuse, or copy.
Productivity Tools for File Maintenance
Edit and manipulate design files without breaking important application-specific links such as AutoCAD xrefs or Autodesk Inventor file relationships. By maintaining design integrity, you save hours of manual cleanup work.
Immediate 'Where Used' Analysis
Understand the impact of a design change on multiple projects-before you make it. Track relationships between design files and view where specific files are used in each project.
Improved Data Organization and Search with Property Management
Control property indexing and access across file types. Specify which rich attribute, text, and property data embedded in design files is captured and exposed for queries, filtering, and data organization. Improve data sharing and quick and accurate searching based on property sets.
Utilities to Batch-Plot Design Data
Create, manage, and reuse print or plot jobs for all managed files. Vault Professional fully supports watermarking and stamping, so you spend less time on administrative tasks.
Design Concept Exploration
Capture the history of your design concepts with Vault Professional. You can iterate new ideas or revert to old ones, arriving at a final digital prototype more quickly. Create labels or snapshots that make it easier to reference and restore designs. You have the potential to reduce the overhead, errors, and lost data associated with manual backup and copy methods.
Intuitive 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 the correct version of data.
Manage Data Security from Design Concept to Retirement
Manage critical aspects of design data at every stage of the lifecycle to control data security and enforce property standards. Security management helps you give the right people access to the appropriate data at the appropriate time.
