Write-Protected Models

I want to forward a model to another design company and would like to write-protect it- only to be viewed by third parties. Is there any way this could be done?

Only by sending a PDF or raster image. SKP files can’t be write protected.

Send them an animation and images.

I would say that the usual practice would be to place a proprietary intellectual property notice on the model itself and have the third party sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). (All the Sages on this site have signed an NDA with respect to features of forthcoming new SU versions.)

Surely if such a non disclosure existed, the mere mention of it in open forum would push the danger of the Large Hadron Collider sucking the known universe into the oblivion of a man made blackhole onto the back burner.

To my knowledge, the NDA does not cover the NDA. For that, one would need an NDA^2, which Trimble carelessly neglected to have us sign.

Hang on.! Are you saying you didn’t sign the unmentionable NDA^2… now I’m completely confused. Am I allowed to even read what I am writing…

Based on most of your posts, the answer is probably no :wink:
