Relationships exist between the various files you create with Autodesk Inventor. Projects files are text files saved in an xml format that specify the valid file locations for Autodesk Inventordata. For example, a part is usually linked to both an assembly and a drawing document. To avoid broken links or browsing for files that were not found, an understanding of Project files is essential.
If you plan on using a data management solution such as Autodesk Vault or Productstream, a clean file folder structure and a single master project file can ease the transition.
A single master project file provides:
- Reduced file resolution failures
- Increased design re-use
