Non-editable format, please!

Hello,

I want to share a SketchUp model with a client but am concerned about sending an .skp since it is an editable format. Is there any kind of SU format that is read-only or anything else that can be sent as a non-editable? Thanks for your help!

I dont quite follow You but why dont You use
SketchUp Viewer. Its been quite a while since
I used it but it served its purpose then.

True but since anyone can download Google SketchUp they can edit the model.

Unfortunately I don't know of a way from SketchUp to do this. Best bet is just to send images.

Unfortunately SketchUp does not support file locking at the moment. If I were you I'd have a look at the add-ons & plugins section, in particular: eDrawings, Hypercosm and Render Plus. I'm sure you'll find an answer to your dilemma there.

One thing you can do is explode all of your groups/components. At least that makes editing frustrating and hides much of your technique.

I tend to just give client an avi, I have had problems with hypercosm on bigger models.
