I often need to provide customers with 3D SW models of my valves (complex assemblies) so they can use the models as part of their 3D assemblies for their own original equipment. I would only like to share with them the general shape of the valves, and not provide them with the proprietary information of all the interior parts of the models.
Is there a way that I can share a secure or locked version of the model without giving the customers access to all of the interior parts? My solution at the moment is to delete all of the interior parts in the assembly and send the customer a file which only contains the exterior shape of the valve, but this is very time-consuming.
Thanks in advance for the help.
