Vault 2018.1 Update has just been released and comes with new features and Idea submission implementations.
Collaborate with Shared Views
Use Shared Views to collaborate on a visual representation of your model or design online. For example, create a shared view for a customer to request approval or to provide easy access to your field sales team for on-site presentations. Using the link you provide, anyone can view, and comment on, the shared view without needing to have an Autodesk product installed. An email is sent to you when anyone comments on the shared view. You view and reply to comments and manage your shared view directly from your Autodesk product.
Support AnyCAD for SolidEdge
With Inventor 2018.1, AnyCAD has been expanded to allow you to leverage SolidEdge files in your Inventor 2018 designs. This means you can now use Inventor 2018 to efficiently work with others who are using SolidEdge data.
Once a SolidEdge part or assembly file is referenced into an Inventor assembly, the model can be checked into Vault in a way that maintains the integrity of the SolidEdge data. SolidEdge assembly structures are reflected in the Vault browser, and references are detected and checked in as native SolidEdge data. Tools such as “Uses” and “Where Used” can be leveraged on SolidEdge data similar to other formats, and Bill of Material information like the description and material number can be extracted and displayed.
Your ideas are important to us and here are a couple we have implemented.
Inventor Library Files
Library files that don’t exist in the local working folder are downloaded automatically when opening a file in the Vault client. Idea post – Open from Vault client should download library files automatically.
In the Place from Vault dialog in Inventor, the My Saved Searches list is automatically sorted. Idea post – Ability to sort searches in place from Vault dialogue box.
This updated can be downloaded by logging into your Autodesk Account. Click the Product Enhancements link and you will see the update in the list.
