There has long been a need to take Plant 3D projects whose databases reside in Vault and convert them to local projects. Now available in the Project Manager under Vault (which is only available if you have the Vault client installed) there is an option called “Detach from Vault”.
If you use this tool, a copy of the Vault project will be saved in the Vault user workspace which by default is located at %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Plant Vault Projects. After selecting this tool from the opened project you want to detach from Vault, you will get this message.
The original Vault-SQL project still exists and the new copied project database is now SQLite and independent from the Vault and its updates will no longer be sync’d with the Vault database. After you confirm the detach, remove the file from your local workspace.
