Join Gordon Luckett for an in-depth discussion in this video Loading DWGs with Autoloader, part of Learn Vault: The Basics.
- [Voiceover] Other than using a version of AutoCAD…to push the DWGs into Vault, the Autoloader…can be used to load the DWGs as well.…Now, although supported, this process is best used…if the files are single-use and do not have xrefs.…Let's try using the Autoloader now.…Just type autoloader 2016 for Vault,…the wizard appears, we'll click Next,…we'll select our Exercise Files…on the Desktop folder, and click OK.…You should see the list of files in there, we'll click next.…
For Filter, we're going to change this…to AutoCAD files only, so let's highlight those,…click Scan, click OK, and we'll turn off the Filter,…and actually highlight any files…we don't need so we don't need the lazydog…or the PNGs, so any of the non DWGs, let's just…highlight in the list and click Remove, there,…so now we just have our DWGs so let's click Next.…
Let's log in to Vault, so in this case…I'm using Administrator.…There's the Server IP where I installed my Vault,…it's a server, and the only Vault…on there right now is MYVAULT so click OK and OK,…
This course concentrates on the administrative side of Vault Basic. Gordon Luckett shows how to install a Vault server on a central Windows Server, and install the Vault Basic client on a computer with AutoCAD. The server and client are used to track how AutoCAD DWG and other non-CAD files are added, searched, and checked in and out of Vault. Gordon also covers autoloading files to Vault, and backing up and restoring the system. The final chapter covers the premium features in Vault Professional, such as categories, rules, and revisions.
