Let’s take a look at what’s new in the Vault 2022 release.
Autodesk Vault 2022 Highlights
A convenient new workflow with the Inventor Model States and Vault 2022
The new Model States feature in Inventor is one of the most highly requested. You can now create multiple representations of a part or assembly within a single document in Inventor. This new workflow provides a convenient way to engineer, manage, and manufacture your designs.
Vault supports the Inventor Model States to ensure your workflow is as productive as ever. While working in Inventor, you can open files with different model states from Vault. Then edit or place the model in an assembly. Also, each model state is recorded in the Vault item master for more efficient BOM variant management with the appropriate part number and metadata.
Save even more time with new filters in Duplicate Search
You are now able to filter duplicate search results in the Find Duplicates panel within Inventor. New filters are added to expand the Duplicate Search criteria. After you perform a search, you can filter results based on various criteria such as the same material, mirrored parts, and exact matches.
Reduce costs and increase productivity with User and Group Management
Administrators can more easily manage users, groups, and profile attributes for greater productivity. Vault provides better integration with active directory and flexible authentication options for internal and external users to reduce system management costs.
Simplify database maintenance with Replication Technology Enhancement
Vault 2022 replaces the merge replication technology with transactional replication SQL technology where the data synchronizes almost instantly. This enhancement simplifies your database replication maintenance environment and lowers your total cost of ownership.
Access and view data using the Vault 2022 Web Browser Experience
The Vault Thin Client has been revamped for the Vault 2022 release. With an entirely redesigned and modern interface, the Vault 2022 Thin Client offers many new and improved features. It allows you to access and view design data, bill of materials, change orders, and more using only your web browser and Vault credentials.
This is just a handful of examples. Additional new features included in Vault 2022 can be found in the What’s New guide here.
