Extend Vault Viewing with Design Review

When viewing Inventor or AutoCAD data in Vault, basic viewing controls are included right in the Vault interface. If you want to be able to do more than simply view or print the file, use the "Open in Autodesk Design Review" right click option to launch Autodesk Design review. This right click option is available when viewing the DWF files in Vault or the Vault web client that comes with Vault Collaboration or Manufacturing.

Some extra things that can be done from the full Design Review application:

  • Redline and markup with Callouts, Dimensions, and more
  • Compare DWF sheets for changes
  • Play animations published from Inventor presentation files
  • Section 3D models for internal viewing
Take a look at a video of this in action HERE.
