There are plenty of reasons to share your models with others. Maybe your stakeholders need a progress report, or maybe you want to send a copy to a client. Sometimes sending a .skp file isn’t ideal. What if they accidentally erase some of your work? What if they end up sending it to someone you didn’t want to share it with? With Link Sharing, SketchUp makes it easy to show off your awesome models without worrying about accidental edits, unexpected downloads, or your document ending up in the wrong hands.
Link Sharing generates a view-only link you can share with anyone. Your collaborators can open and view your model in SketchUp for Web without logging in or installing any apps. Don’t want folks viewing that version of your model anymore? You can deactivate the link at any time, restricting access immediately.
You can share a model from within the modeling window using the Sharing () icon located in the top navigation bar. Click the icon and activate the toggle in the Sharing window to generate a link.
Once you’ve generated a link you can share it with your collaborators, stakeholders, or even your family and friends! If you want to restrict access, open the Sharing window again and move the toggle to the off position.
