Autodesk provides a variety of online services, such as Wiki Help, Document storage, Rendering, Autodesk Labs, and so on. Online service access is being made an integral part of the product or suite experience. The following service is available from within the Autodesk Inventor LTproduct.
You can store design documents, libraries, and design data online for accessing from a different site or by those with whom you collaborate. The Save & Send process is similar to Pack and Go, except more automated.
The online tools are available from three locations:
- Online tab
- Application menu
- Quick Access Toolbar (QAT)
The source file is the active document. The destination is automatically created using the document name as a folder name. If the name already exists a new version of the files are created. The active project file provides the paths to the referenced files. You have the option to create DWF files along with the upload of your project data.
Libraries and Linked Files
Libraries and linked files are considered required documents for the process. There is not an option to exclude these files. Not all included files support DWF output. Those that do not support DWF are automatically set to No. All other files default to Yes.
Design Data & Templates
Design data and templates do not necessarily have to be retained for the success of this process. These are set to be excluded by default. You have the option to include the files.
Multi-select is supported. The selected value is applied to all selected objects in the dialog box.
Save and Send to Cloud
To store the current document online, do the following:
- Click Online tab Online DocumentsSave & Send to Cloud.
- In the Save & Send dialog box, check to ensure the filename represents the document you want to store online.

- Optionally, click Show document details to review the content to be stored online.
- Expand the different sections and specify the content to be stored. For example, you may want to include content normally excluded such as design data or templates. Set the Save Option to Save & Send for any items you want stored online.
