Archiving drawings is nothing new. Since the first releases of AutoCAD, CAD managers, designers, and drafters have found ways to
archive or create backups of drawings. Most people use operating system solutions or third-party utilities to archive drawings and
related files. They use the same methods to save project files to a ZIP file that they send as a transmittal package to their customers or other stakeholders. However, with SSM and the eTransmit and Archive options, you have a built-in solution that is easy to use and effective.
