We’ve released the Vault 2022 Add-in for SOLIDWORKS. With this new release, we now support SOLIDWORKS 2021 (SP2) and SOLIDWORKS 2020 (SP5). We are no longer supporting SOLIDWORKS 2018.
Using this app, SOLIDWORKS files can be stored, maintained, updated, and version-controlled in Vault Professional along with other files from Autodesk applications. This allows a group of users to work concurrently on designs without the fear of overwriting modified files or working on the wrong version of a design.
What’s New for 2022
We’ve added Vault Details dialog box. Changes that you make in Vault Client are immediately reflected in SOLIDWORKS which saves a lot of time and streamlines the design process. It can be invoked via the Vault Ribbon or context menu in Feature Manager. This is valuable as it keeps the user in canvas in the CAD tool.
We’ve improved the BOM tab experience. The Row Order numbering is now supported.
We’ve added new functionality called “Upload parent files containing different child versions in the selected Vault folder”. If this option is checked, you can upload parent files with different child file version which already exists in the Vault destination folder. The existing child files are not replaced in Vault. If this option is unchecked, you can’t upload parent files if some child files already exist in Vault.
