Exporting to consultants that use Vectorworks

Recommended Posts

I would like to export/send my model to a structural engineer who uses Vectorworks.

How can I share just the necessary info, without giving away any customized stuff? I'm thinking I don't want to share content in my resource browser - eg, details, worksheets, render styles, etc. Also no need to send over irrelevant layers or classes 

Do i need to create a separate file where I've copied just the model? Is there a way to create a reference file? (I know how to bring in a referenced file, but not how to send....)

 

Thanks

Tali

Well, I'm pretty free with my sharing. 

 

If you create a Dropbox (pick your flavor of WAN), you can v=create a new folder and a new VWX drawing in that folder and do a DLVP reference, however, if the Engineer doesn't have access to that file, they'll likely not get updates. So you would have to repeat the process with any revision.

 

You could also create a Project file and limit that user's access.
