Inventor Bill of Material Enhancement: Check Out From Vault

April 8, 2019 Mark Flayler

It never fails...all the work I want to do to my files in the Bill of Material Editor...put on hold because I forgot to check out the files from Vault before I tried to modify them.  Wait...not anymore!

Starting with Inventor and Vault 2019 you can now check out a file from the BOM Editor with the right click menu.  Make sure you submit your ideas to Autodesk to get them added to the software, this is just one of many ideas put in through the Idea Station.
