At Autodesk University 2015, the combined use of the Vault API and the Forge Viewer API was first demonstrated. This class continues on that path and showcases the use of the Vault API and Forge Design Automation for Inventor software to programmatically modify Inventor files that reside within Vault software. We will see how to check out a file from Vault and modify the file using Design Automation for Inventor, eliminating the need for a local install of Inventor and its dependent licenses. Post modification, we’ll check the updated file back into Vault, creating a new version and maintaining file history.
- Learn how to create a basic workflow combining Vault API and Forge Design Automation for Inventor.
- Learn how to verify the updated files using the Vault Explorer.
- Experience the essence of Forge Design Automation for Inventor when used with Vault.
- Learn about the advantages and disadvantages of using Vault with the Forge platform.
