AutoCAD Inventor :: Sharing Assembly Files Without Using Vault

Nov 6, 2012

We do not use VAULT. We're using network shared folder with 3 machine.

In some cases three users opening same assembly and sub assemblies. In this case Inventor showing us an error like "You can not save file. Use save-as" But in this case it's impossible to work share files.

We're opening / using same project file (ipj).  I remember that older versions of Inventor give us to chance that not save some subassemblies of main assembly. In this case you may save newer version of assembly files..

How can I share network folder to share my assembly files with the other colleagues? 

Using Inventor 2013 and not Vault. Because we're using Linux file server .

AutoCAD Inventor :: Placing Part / Assembly From The Vault Or Local HDD

Apr 10, 2012

how to place part or assembly from the Vault or local Hard drive in to the existing assembly?

Basically I do have a list of parts (wall panels different sizes etc...) I was going to create an iLogic form with drop downs, so engineer can choose wall panel assemblies he needs and qty`s. iLogic will pull these assemblies from the vault/HDD in to the existing assembly. Currently we have to go to so many different folders to pick them up.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Autodesk Cloud - Sharing Files For Collaboration?

Dec 6, 2011

I am trying to share documents with outside vendors using the Autodesk Cloud services. I have successfully uploaded files but, out of the six people I have shared the files with, only 3 of them can actually see the files. 

My question is this: If I send an invitation to view the shared document to a person whose e-mail address is, "" does John have to use that exact e-mail as his official user name when registering with the Cloud or can he use any user name he wants to?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Migrate Files From Vault

Nov 23, 2011

We are trying to migrate our 2010 and earlier inventor files that exists in our vault 2012 professional fully replicated environment to The latest inventor release.

We are trying to utilize the task scheduler. but when attempting to use the "Migrate Files from Vault" and select the option to add folders. we receive several pop ups, one after another. The header states "folder" and in the message box is simply "1000" then an "ok" button.

After clicking ok a half dozen times the dialog finally comes up to select the folder, but the entire vault is not available in the selection window. I have tried this on several machines and 2 different databases. Same result.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Checking Out Files From Vault?

Dec 9, 2011

I am using Inventor 2009 and have always been told not to check out files from the Vault directly. Rather to use Inventor when checking them in or out. What is the reason for this and has that changed with current versions?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Files Won't Check-in To Vault

Jan 3, 2012

We are currently using Inventor 2010 Professional Suite. Most of the users here are working with AutoCAD Mechanical. For the most part, it does the job. The person that previously used Inventor has moved on to bigger and better opportunities. Recently a new person was hired to utilize the Inventor software for initial designs. The original software was loaded on a new machine and everything seemed to work fine. Inventor was able to checkout files from the vault and were able to be manipulated accordingly. The issues began when the individual started to check the files back into the vault. It would appear everything works fine but the files never appear in the vault. Even if we create a new directory and attempt to check them in, the new directory is created in the vault but the files will not check-in.

If we use AutoCAD Mechanical, the files will check-out and check-in fine using the addin tools. It would appear all the rights are setup correctly. We even changed the new user to administrator and it still did not work. No one else has Inventor installed, but I am about to install it on another machine this Thursday when IT is in.

We have attempted to even drag the files into the vault just to see if that would work, even though we know this method is usually not the best. Still no success.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Quickest Way To Rename Files In Vault?

Apr 9, 2012

What would be the quickest way to rename files in Vault?

I have lets say 100 parts with prefix 1012.

I want to change to 1014.

I can hightlight all parts in Vault, go rename and then replace prefix manually for each part.

Seems hectic.Any quicker, more automatic way?

Adding prefix does not work since does not replaces but adds.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using Autoloader To Load Files To Vault?

Jan 16, 2009

We are looking at using Autoloader to load inventor files to the vault. Problem is we do not use the default folder "Designs" in our Vault folder structure it is named differently.

So what happens is that Autoloader does not find the designs folder and creates one automatically, and files are uploaded to this folder which is exactly what we do not want.

I need to change the Autoloader settings to use the differently named folder not the designs folder..

AutoCAD Inventor :: Why Can't Move Large Files In Vault

Oct 14, 2010

I have a couple of .ipt files that are up near 60Mb. We have rearranges the folder structure in vault but these files can't be moved. It comes up with an error saying that access to the C:Temp .... folder is denied. I have full access to c: harddisk so it is something that Vault has created. It is only with large files.

Funny things is that when you try to move it (drag and drop) the file that is too large is checked out, without a version being transferred to the harddrive. So it finishes up with a check mark but no circle.

When placing the rack assembly into the main assembly, it reverts to the coppor coloration I changed from the original style.

Steps I've taken:

Exported the styles .xml and Imported the styles into the master tubeandpipe.iam 

Imported the user created .xml styles into the main assembly file nothing seems to work

AutoCAD Inventor :: Files From Vault Opening In Separate Windows?

Jan 13, 2012

 I click the Inventor icon on the desktop to open Inventor, I click the Vault tab and then click "Go to Vault", the vault opens. I open a file to look/modify it. I then click another file to open it also and it opens in a new Inventor window. The same as windows explorer does when you open another web page and it opens in a new window instead of a new tab if you dont have the "Tabbed Browsing: set in options.

 I am running Inventor Professional 2012.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Copying Files In Vault - Copy Design Alternative?

Mar 5, 2013

I have a folder that contains subfolders, then more subfolders. All these folders contain Inventor files. There are few different models there with drawings and related files... 

I need to make an exact copy of the folder at different location in Vault. To use Copy Design tool, I would need to do it few times, as there are few totally separate files in the folders.

Now, is there a way of taking main folder with its all contants and just copying/renaming it to other location? It would save me lot of time.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Project Files Vs Assembly Files?

Mar 8, 2013

I am deep into my first Inventor project. I am approaching the point where I would like to make a comprehensive set of drawings with bills of material etc. I have discovered that all this time I have actually been working in one big assembly file. My main project file is NOT a project file (so I have discovered). It is a *.iam file. 

So, my question is, should I create a project file, and then add my main assembly to it? Should one normally create a new Project file for each new job? What does one gain by doing this versus simply using the *.iam file?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Archiving Big Assembly Files

Nov 16, 2012

I have several projects that have some very big complex assembly files which are taking up a lot of space on our company drive. I need to compress and archive these large files to free up space on the drive. I know that shrinkwrap is an option to simplify assembly files, any optimum way of compressing large assembly files and reducing the file size considerably ?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Unresolved Files In Assembly

Mar 19, 2013

I have an assembly that has a component that has not only been deleted from this assembly, but has been removed from the vault.  When I try to select a similar file on my local, just to get through this I get the followong error message and this cycle keeps going in circles.  Wanting me to point to where this deleted file is.

 This assembly remains unresolved and as a result of that I cannot check it into the vault.

Another frustrating things about his is in the dialog window that wants you to select a different file, there is no option to either select from the CC or the vault.  Why?

I just hope the only solution is not to recreate this assembly.  Because this is a subassembly used in upper level assemblies.  Speaking of which those upper lever assemblies wont check into the vault either because of this issue.

AutoCad :: Sharing Files Between Computers (no Server)

Apr 3, 2012

What is the best way to share dwg files so taht stuff doesnt get messed up? The designer says taht civil3D now uses something call dat references, this is new to me since ive been out the game for a couple years, how do you send those files? are they within the drawing?

Basically here is my problem, the designer does all the design, plan and profile, than he sends to me to put in the notes for the plan views, not knowing if when I save the file it will mess up his profile, he jsut copy pasted the notes I put in into his original file, as oppose to jsut overriding it. So in essence we are doing double work..

another thing, he sent me the proposed base file, and when I got it I got big text saying that there is a broken reference. I went ahead and made some changes and sent back to him thinking it would go away cause it will find the reference on his computer, but it didnt. And than he said that the drawing I sent him didnt have any settings under "toolspace" like his original did.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Conversion Of Assembly Files To Pro / E Compatibility

Jun 26, 2012

I'm running into a file conversion issue at work. I use Inventor 2008 and i need to have my assembly miodels analyzed by stress engineering via Pro/E Wildfire.

I've tried converting the assembly file to .iges and .step. However, the assemblies are jumbled in the conversion. All the parts are there, but the constraints are not.  In the past, the assemblies have been small enough that the stress engineer was able to reassemble the parts in Pro/E. This current project, however, is much to large to do so. 

If I were to purchase Inventor 2013, could I save the files with the Pro/E native file extensions directly?

AutoCAD Architecture :: How To Lock Files For View Only Sharing

Feb 15, 2012

I'm using 2012 autocad architecture.  I would like to know ASAP if there is a safe way to share my autocad drawings with a specific autocad user that completely locks the files so they can not be modified, saved as something else and opened, or otherwise compromised.  I have a client that wants copies in autocad of the drawing files. But I don't see a good way to lock them that is fool proof, and am not sure what such a question would be listed under in the help index.  Is there a way of saving them that can keep them un-modifiable?
