The archive_project command can compress your entire project into a zip file. This command has several options for storing sources and to run results. Essentially, the entire project is copied locally in the memory and then zipped into a file on the disk while leaving the original project intact. This command also copies any remote source into the archive.

This feature is useful for sending your design description to another person or to store as a self contained entity. You might also need to send your version of vivado_init.tcl if you are using this file to set specific parameters or variables that affect the design.
