Vault data management software isn't just a single program; it's a framework, composed of many pieces like CAD add-in or Vault Explorer (Client) working together. You can customize some of these pieces and not others. This class will discuss the various ways to customize and integrate with Vault, including Vault Data Standard advanced scripting layer and Vault application programming interface. Following samples of standalone applications interacting with Vault, jobs automating repetitive tasks, or event handlers extending workflows, you can get started scripting and coding your own first extensions.
Administrators with some knowledge in scripting and programming concepts, but no clue of Vault API. You are interested to automate some tasks and like to vitalize your favour to script or write some lines of code in Vault PDM environment.

AutoCAD Plant 3D software and Vault data management software have been able to work together for some time now, but there have been a lot of improvements since the early days. Have you wanted to increase the level of security of your AutoCAD Plant 3D projects, add versioning and check-out; and in workflow, make it easier for other offices to work on your AutoCAD Plant 3D project with you seamlessly? If you have thought about this but thought Vault was too difficult or too hard to send AutoCAD Plant 3D projects to, then this class can show you how easy it can be. We'll look at how incorporating Vault into your AutoCAD Plant 3D project workflow can secure the data, make collaboration seamless, and make design work faster.
Join a roundtable discussion on the challenges and solutions associated with managing CAD standards. Engage in a discussion about how we are, could, and should be managing block libraries, line styles, and templates-both internally and between organizations. We'll delve into technologies currently on offer, from AutoCAD software's standard functionalities to Vault data management software, Buzzsaw software, network shares, and third-party solutions. And we'll explore the options around custom development.
Meet and have an open discussion with a panel of data management avengers from Autodesk. Be ready to discuss a number of subjects, and bring your questions for us to discuss and advise upon. This session will feature Vault Professional software, Vault Basic software, and Vault Workgroup. It is AIA approved.
Experience with VACCO Industries the effort of upgrading from PLM 360 software to Fusion Lifecycle software. This presentation will explore the planning and requirements used for the upgrade, as well as best practices and lessons learned. Working closely with Autodesk, this lecture can assist all existing Fusion Lifecycle customers and new potential customers as we discuss the pros and cons of each environment. We'll include a live demonstration and a peek into VACCO's workflows, integrated workspaces, and other system integrations with Vault data management software and ERP (enterprise resource planning).
This class is about the process of making an assembly model that is built by iLogic codes. It will demonstrate the steps of automation, and how the iLogic component should be used to reduce errors of the assemblies. We're a team of 4 people who almost always work solely on coding, and we've reached an area where iLogic is fully saturated. In this class, you'll be able to understand why you have to rebuild and update your assemblies in order to get your iLogic code working again. We've found a way-what we believe to be one of the best ways to create an assembly with 500-plus unique parts. This class is not suitable for beginners, as it will be showing real-life examples of how our algorithms work their ways around the "non-starting rules." In this lesson you will also learn how to program your Content Center Libraries with a delicate touch.
The Autodesk Forge platform delivers brilliant technologies that enhances the daily work also in the desktop world. This session will explain and show how to benefit from the forge APIs within your desktop environment with practical, real examples. See how to use the Forge Viewer within Vault, or how to leverage the Design Automation API with your local files, how to use the Data Management and Derivative API. This session will explain how Cloud and Desktop can work together today, with practical examples and so give you new ideas for your business. (Joint AU/Forge DevCon class).
In the latest release, Vault data management software introduced the capability to automatically publish and share 2D PDFs of drawings during the release process. In this class, we'll explore the different aspects of this new functionality. We'll take you through the steps to correctly set up this publishing process in Vault and show you the different publish options. The PDF format of a 2D design file is used in many firms to facilitate communications among engineering, purchasing, manufacturing, and other departments. We'll also teach you how to let users outside your engineering department access the PDFs for printing and other workflows. This session will feature Vault Professional data management software and Vault Workgroup, including the use of the Vault Job Processor.
In this class, we'll do a walk-through of the different Vault Professional data management software replication possibilities and understand how they work. We'll explore different options and configurations, and find the most appropriate ones for your needs. Discover the advantages of this powerful Vault Professional feature, and learn how to configure it and its environment for optimal performance.
Vault data management software isn't just a single program; it's a framework, composed of many pieces like CAD add-in or Vault Explorer (Client) working together. Some of these pieces are customizable and some are not. This class will discuss the different capabilities of the Vault API, in particular, details of Vault Explorer extensions, custom jobs, and custom event handlers-including aspects like debugging, security, and other sophisticated topics.
The First Order has risen and will stop at nothing to get to your data. Vault software security can be complex and confusing if you do not understand how it works. This class is essential for administrators who want to learn the different security models within Vault software. The main focus of the class will be object- and lifecycle-level security. Learn how object-level security sets or denies access to objects for users or groups. Learn how lifecycle-level security sets or denies access to objects based on the state of the object. Finally, learn how object- and lifecycle-state security are combined to work together to control object access, which is new in Vault 2017 software. Leave with the knowledge needed to awaken your security needs and restore peace and justice to your Vault software. Defend against the First Order. This session features Vault Professional, Vault Office, and Vault Workgroup.
This class will focus on the effective use of Custom Objects in Vault Professional data management software to replace spreadsheet-based tracking systems. In addition, you will become familiar with other opportunities to put Custom Objects to work in your environment.
