Autodesk Vault 2024 has enhancements to help users accelerate overall design creation and data management experience. Vault subscribers can start taking advantage of the new functionality right away.
Watch the overview video to see some of the new features in action, and read on to learn more about what’s new in Vault 2024.
Autodesk Vault 2024 Highlights
New Copy Folder functionality in Vault 2024 makes it easy to set up a new project quickly by starting with a known folder structure. The Copy Folder feature can copy a folder’s original structure, including subfolders, folder permissions and properties. This lets you quickly organize your data and help teams adopt engineering standards.
Automated CAD Formats
Like automatic PDF creation, Vault lets users publish and manage DXF and STEP files. This can be triggered by a lifecycle state or manually through the toolbar and context menu. The files can then be stored inside Vault or externally in a designated shared folder that mimics the Vault folder structure. This allows you to export DXF and STEP files for manufacturing, suppliers and subcontractors and improves the design release process so teams can focus more on the work that matters most.
Peer Review for Lifecycle State Transition
Enforce peer reviews for state changes to facilitate delegation of authority and increase transparency. When approving designs in Vault, you can now configure a peer review check that must be met before a state change can occur. This will ensure that someone else on the team must review the design before it is allowed to move to the next state in the process. This functionality can be used to facilitate the delegation of authority and increase transparency.
Backup and Restore Enhancements
Now users can selectively back up vault and library databases to reduce the time and space required for the backup process. Users can choose to only backup databases without any files. You can also choose which vault and libraries you want to be backed up. You can use an existing file store location during the restore operation. There is also an option to exclude the file store validation during a restore. As a result, the restore operation will be completed faster, and the file store validation can be executed later.
Lastly, you can redirect the vault to a new file store location. This allows the administrator to prepare a new location for the file store while the existing file store is being used. Once the new location is ready, redirect a vault to the new location without having to move files during the operation. These enhancements are geared toward giving the Vault administrator more flexibility for backup and restoring operations for large environments.
Also, Autodesk is featuring an upcoming webinar ‘Vault: What’s Now, New, and Next’ featuring Autodesk Vault expert Irvin Hayes, Jr. There are two registration options based on your region:
