two questions: Sending models and memory

two questions: Sending models and memory

two questions: Sending models and memory

First off we are about embark a project where models will be sent and compared with our customer. Is there a way to send everything in one file? Like AutoCAD's e-transmit that would grab all xrefs, line types, etc. associated with a drawing or sheet set. Does Inventor have anything like that? I don't understand the 'Vault' thing so I don't use it.

Secondly I notice running for a while it starts to bog down a little in the drawings, well bogs down quite a bit. View generations taking about 5 seconds (steel table). I close Inventor and it runs fast again. Therefore my question is there a way to dump memory while in Inventor that would mimic closing it and restarting?

Save Copy As> Pack and Go...
Do this from the top level assembly drawing to collect everything.
