    Default Cad file locking

    Is there a way to send client cad files that they can print but not change?

    Hi there! Congrats on making your first forum post.

    I'm going to move your question from the new users forum over to the CAD Management forum, because you'll get more answers over there.

    Cheers.

    PDF or DWF are the common ways to handle that situation.

    Alternatively, you can look into purchasing CADLock as a robust solution
