The last couple days, I’ve been learning some of the ins and outs of how Vault 2012 can now work with the AEC 2012 products like Revit and Navisworks, besides just learning about Vault period. Brian Schanen at Autodesk has a nice little post over at Under the Hood about this integration with Navisworks.
Here’s a little clip from his post about how to show the Vault tools in Navisworks…
Now, here’s a tip that you’ll need to use before Vaulting Navisworks data. The Vault Ribbon tab is off by default. To enable, go to Options, expand Tools, click Vault, and put a check in the box to ‘Show in User Interface’.
Now, before everyone goes out and starts trying to show the Vault tools in Navisworks 2012, you’ll need Vault 2012 installed for this option to be available.
As far as how Navisworks and Vault work together, this is the first iteration of this integration and a specific workflow at this point hasn’t really been nailed down. As I learn more about Vault and how it’s going to play with Navisworks, I will be posting more about this new integration.
