Software offerings provided by Autodesk, Inc. Vault is a product data management (PDM) solution that helps design teams track work in progress and maintain version control in multi-user environments. It allows them to organize and reuse designs by consolidating product information and reducing the need to re-create designs from scratch. AutoCAD is a software application for computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting in both 2D and 3D. Revit is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software that allows users to design with both parametric 3D modeling and 2D drafting elements for those in the architectural field. Inventor is a 3D mechanical solid modeling design software for creating 3D digital prototypes used in the design, visualization and simulation of products.

Integration Extends Reach of Autodesk Vault Family to Enterprise
Orange, CA – September 9, 2009 – The vdR Group announces it has released another integration for the Autodesk Vault family of data management solutions that offers bidirectional data exchange capabilities with Microsoft SharePoint.
As a long time partner to Autodesk, vdR continues to add to the list of data integrations for Autodesk Vault. The most recent integration will be highlighted at the upcoming Autodesk University event scheduled for the first week of December 2009 in Las Vegas.
The integration and supporting platform are sold and marketed by Autodesk. The data exchange platform is branded as VaultConnect. Each application integration “hooks” into VaultConnect via a “Data Exchange Adapater” or DXA. Each DXA leverages the target application APIs and conventions for exchanging data.
Add-in for Bentley MicroStation
Autodesk Vault 2013® Add-in for Bentley MicroStation® is an integration product developed for Autodesk. Now users of Bentley Microstation® are able to manage their data within their Autodesk Vault environment. From Microstation, users have a toolbar and a menu similar to what’s found in AutoCAD to provide functionality such as check in, check out, etc. And with the data now in Autodesk Vault®, users can manage their MicroStation CAD data along with their AutoCAD data.
Autodesk Vault Connect® is an integration product developed for Autodesk. It provides the exchange of data between a client’s Autodesk Vault® environment with that of its corporate system or other business application. The transfer of data can be mapped from Vault to the client’s ERP system, and bi-directionally back, if desired. The process can be automated to allow for updates based on an action such as ‘Release’ in Vault or can be set up to be manually published at any time.
Autodesk Vault Connect® can also exchange data with other target applications; whether they be CAD, PLM, ECM, or ERP.
OpenText CAD Manager for Autodesk AutoCAD® and Bentley MicroStation® are designed to introduce data from engineering departments into a corporate document management system. To manage the complex relationships between engineering drawings stored in OpenText Content Server/Livelink, CAD Manager includes an intuitive structure that differentiates between parent relationships, child relationships, and more. CAD Manager provides seamless access to OpenText Content Server. Users can interact with the OpenText content management directly from AutoCAD and MicroStation menus or via a Batch Processor that allows for the check in/out of multiple files.
