Re: Vault collaboration and 3ds Max

the only i see it is to check out the inventor file through inventor then import the file from your workspace into 3ds max save the file in 3ds max then check the .max file into vault

these all guesses since there is no documentation on how 3ds max and vault are supposed to work

Re: Vault collaboration and 3ds Max

I had the assembly checked out and tried to import it into Max from the local Vault directory.  Vault can't find any Content Center parts or iParts.

 

I'm wondering if it would work better if I do a Pack and Go from Inventor?  Then I could unzip to a folder and import to Max from there.

 

Still, I'd like to see Autodesk ring in here with a link to a Max plug-in that would work with Vault Pro.

Bill,

 

If you are under a 3DS Max subscription, you will see a Vault add-in for 3DS Max as a download in the subscription center.  There is only one add-in for 3DS Max that works with all levels of Vault.

We're on subscription for the Product Design Suite Premium, which includes 3ds max design.  I go to my Autodesk Subscription page.

Nothing there.  So I click the View all available product enhancements link.  I don't trust myself to read through all the listed products, so I search "3ds" and get 6 hits on the page.

 

Extension for Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013 (1)

Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 & Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013 English Win Samples Files (2 & 3)

Subscription Advantage Pack for Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2012 (4)

Autodesk 3ds Max 2012 & Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2012 English Win Samples Files (5 & 6)

 

I don't know where else to look.  If I'm missing something, please say so.

That is not true:

Note for 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design Users: You must install the Autodesk
Vault Basic 2013 Plug-in for 3ds Max 2013 from the 3ds Max or 3ds Max Design
2013 Installation Wizard to make Vault Basic available from within the product.

Darren,

 

Thanks for the correction.  This must have been changed since the last time I have used it.

But as I stated before, that add-in although titled for Vault Basic, should log into Vault Pro.

Filed a support request to get the download.

 

The 3ds Max import is working from the Pack and Go folder.

Bill,

 

I was told that is now a part of the standard 3DS installer.  You should see it in the menu already!

 

See attached!
