Sending assembly to 3rd party - easiest way to do this?

I have an assembly I wish to forward to a contractor. It is only small - containing some basic FEA (213 KB). What is the easiest, most effective way to do this? Pack and Go?


Obviously I have never done it before...

If they are on the same version of Inventor, then the Pack-And-Go will work fine. If they don't have Inventor you may want to have a conversation with their CAD person as to what works for them as well. If they aren't on Inventor, good chance that the FEA data will be lost in conversion to different systems as the FEA data is very specific to CAD versions.
