Starting with the 2018.1 release, Autodesk has included three new means of sharing Vault data outside the company firewall. All three methods use the Autodesk Cloud, are valuable, and have a place depending on the reasons you need to collaborate. Whether you need feedback on a design, need to deliver Vaulted documents at the end of a project, or need to work collaboratively on Vaulted documents, Vault now has a solution that can help.
If you’re a consistent user of Autodesk Inventor you’ve probably at least heard of iLogic. Maybe you think of it as “that programming thing that I don’t have time to get into and probably don’t need”. Maybe you’ve dabbled in it, or copied some rules from the Autodesk Inventor Customization Forum to save a few clicks or solve a problem. Maybe you’ve even created some complex rules to drive configurable parts and assemblies. Regardless, it’s important to have a good understanding of the tool – what it is, what it isn’t, and where it fits in the overall scheme of Inventor’s Design Automation toolset.
