8. How to Externally Share a Project
In the same way that we can communicate internally with our team members, we can communicate externally with our customers, outside service providers, or partners in our manufacturing network.
a. To Externally Share a part, go to the bottom-left of the screen and hit 'Add Conversation'. You'll have to provide a name for your conversation.
b. Enter the email addresses of any individuals you'd like to add to this Conversation. You can also add a note which will populate in the email they receive.
c. In Manage Settings, you can determine whether individuals in this Conversation can upload supporting files, download parts, and determine which files they have access to.
We can annotate features in External Share as well!
a. Select your features or faces, go to the Conversation, and hit '+'.
b. Then, select 'Annotate Features' or 'Annotate Faces'. Individuals you've shared a project with will have access to the geometric interrogations associated with the primary model. This is a valuable opportunity to communicate manufacturability warnings to customers.
