With SmartUse + Autodesk, you can:

Increase your time savings. The capability for direct upload integration with Autodesk Vault will drastically improve the upload process, with 75% time savings. This will prevent users from having to download documents from Vault, convert them all into PDFs and then upload them into SmartUse.

Minimize rework. There is always a chance of a document getting missed or a download process not catching all documents. This integration with Vault will allow users to ensure all their documents are being pulled directly from the vault and server they choose.

Improve flexibility. This integration works with both the on-premise and web-client versions of Autodesk Vault.

Integration Summary

SmartUse users can upload drawings directly from Autodesk Vault into SmartUse. Additionally, as part of the process, native CAD (*.DWG) files will be converted to PDF.

How It Works

There are two levels of this integration, one for Vault web-based client deployments, and one for Vault desktop-based client deployments. Users can pull drawings from the SmartUse web portal directly from the Vault web client. Or users can push drawings from within the Vault desktop application, using a SmartUse Vault installable add-in. In either case, users can send PDF or DWG files; DWG files will be converted to PDF before uploading to SmartUse.

Integration Requirements

– Autodesk Vault license
– SmartUse license
