    Electromechanical Workflow | Link components

    ACE Component only

    INV Component only

    INV & ACE Component

    – Not Linked

    INV & ACE Component

    – Linked

    Electromechanical Workflow | Vault Support

    ► File Types ► Link File*

    ► Snapshot Files AutoCAD Electrical / Inventor

    ► AutoCAD Electrical Vault Add In recognizes linked projects and backups link and snapshot files

    * for multi user collaboration placed on a network share

    Electromechanical Workflow | Vault Support Exercise

  • 9© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | Restore Link file

    ► Solve missing link file situation

    ► Get Files from Vault to original location

    ► Remove read only attribute

  • 10© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | Workspace Sync

    ► Electromechanical expects link files accessible  Exclude file types from workspace synchronization

  • 11© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    Add 3D electrical

    components to Inventor library

    1 Prepare 3D-ACE

    components: Set

    BOM structure to “Reference”

    2 Add 3D component

    name(s) to ACE

    library (relative path of library)

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    4

    Restart Inventor and

    test the placement of

    the component in Inventor

    5 Check-in the part & Release in Vault

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    ► Workflow video:

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    ► Remarks: ► A library path is required to store Catalog Components

    ► During placement of 3D components out of the Catalog, Inventor copies to following location:

    \Electrical Components\\\

    Example C:\OTx2018-ELECTROMECH\Designs\Electrical Components\PB\AB\800MR-D1D1

    => Redundant files in Vault (!Unique File Naming!)

  • 15© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    ► Option 1: Manage Catalog Components Library in Vault ► Turn off “Enforce Unique File Names” in Vault Explorer

    ► Use the relative path to the inventor file, starting from the library definition in the inventor project file:

    Full path of this file: C:\OTx2018-ELECTROMECH\Libraries\ Inventor Electrical Library\PB\AB\800MR-D1D1\ADSK-UL-11228.ipt

    ► Use workspace sync to populate the Electrical Components folder and library folder

  • 16© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    ► Option 2: Manage Catalog Components Library outside Vault ► Configure extra library on a shared location

    ► relative path to the inventor file in this case:

    \\dellavondtp2\ACADE_SharedWS\CAE\Electrical Components\ PB\AB\800MR-D1D1\ADSK-UL-11228.ipt

    ► Best Practice: Keep the folder structure like \\ In that case you need only the filename in the database

    ► Copy the default Inventor Electrical Library 2019

    ► Use workspace sync to populate the Electrical Components folder

    file:///C:/Users/Public/Documents/Autodesk/Inventor Electrical Library 2019

    Electromechanical Workflow | Catalog/Library Management

    ► Optional: Complete Workflow to create an AcadE 2D symbol and link it to a 3D Part

  • 18© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ► AcadE BOM reports are expected to reflect complete BOM data including ► Electrical only components

    ► Inventor only components

    ► Electrical – Inventor linked components

    ► BOM Reports add an option to include Inventor components:

    ► Unlinked

    ► Linked

    ► AutoCAD Electrical is enabled to handover the complete Electromechanical BOM to Vault Item BOM in case 3D components are linked.

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ► Workflow

    Link / Attach in

    schematics 1 Insert 3D component 2 BOM Reports ACE

    Item BOM Vault 3

    Simple workflow to support common BOM for ACE and CAD (3D)

    Provides BOM for entire project

    ACE BOM is the leading portion, the addition of 3D components to mechanical design is optional

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ► Sample:

    ACE Component only

    INV Component only

    INV & ACE Component – Not Linked

    INV & ACE Component – Linked

  • 21© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ▪ Result in ACE BOM Report ▪ PLC602 is listed once (INV)

    ▪ PLC622 is listed twice (ACE/INV)

    ▪ PLC722 is listed once (linked)

    ▪ Result in Vault Pro BOM ▪ PLC602 is not listed (INV)

    ▪ PLC622 is listed once (ACE)

    ▪ PLC722 is listed once (linked)

    Vault is reflecting the ACE components as a BOM

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ► Electrical BOM, always leading?

    ► In most cases the ACE BOM will be the leading information – based on that the electrical components will be ordered

    ► In case (some) electrical components get ordered based on a Inventor BOM you need to develop a strategy to avoid doubles

    ► The next slides gives some considerations and suggestions

  • 23© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ► Electrical BOM, always leading?

    ► Add a iProperty (True/False) which reflects the order process

    ► Extend the BOM with additional BOM row property and map iProperty to it

    ► Based on a report template you can easy extract the information for the order process

    ► Challenge: highlight electrical component ordered by the Mechanical BOM in electrical BOM to avoid that the component is ordered twice as soon as the component gets linked within ACE

  • 24© 2018 Autodesk

    Electromechanical Workflow | BOM Management

    ► Electrical BOM, always leading?

    ► Eventually the electrical properties in Inventor can be used to provide the info back from Inventor to ACE that a specific component will be ordered through the mechanical BOM

    ► Using the „Installation“ as a kind of Container to transfer the information to ACE. This field equals a BOM row property and can be shown in the ACE BOM reports and ACE Browser

  • Multi – User Electrical Project setup Shared workspace

    SQL Catalog

  • 26© 2018 Autodesk

    Multi – User Setup | Shared Working Folder

    ► Requirement:

    When collaborating on an Electrical Project, all users should work on the same WDP file

    ► Solution:

    Use a Shared working folder (Sand Box)

    ► Warning:

    Users can be working on the same files. Strictly follow the Sandbox Rules to avoid overwriting data!

  • 27© 2018 Autodesk

    Multi – User Setup | Shared Working Folder Rules

    ► Remain logged into the vault at all times.

    ► You cannot check out a file that is currently opened for read-write by another user.

    ► You can still check out a file that is opened for read only by anoth
