Protect 3d Cad Model from being changed

219 Views, 2 Replies

Is there a way to Protect a large 3d Cad Model to a Client so his

Vendors can use it to take measurements. We want to allow

measureing but no changes to the model. I realize that they

could open the model read only but I need something to prevent

an intentional or accidental change to the model.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

export it as 3D-DWF, then your partners can measure, orbit, zoom plot, but not change it.

The software to display the file can be downloaded for free from everyone >>>here: Autodesk Design Review<<<

I appreciate your response and have been exploring the DWF idea. Be aware if you do not

need to have xref informaion showing use True View to open the file and export as a DWF.

It creates a much smaller file than exporting from Autocad.

 

Thanks
