how to share files for editing without loosing original
Id like to share a file to other people in our company. I'm the only "real" onshape user, but want them to be able to use my files. Basic assemblies and sketches to check for interference on some assemblies before making an order with our vendors. Effectively I've crated a file that allows other NON-CAD users to "double check" dimensions using assemblies and sketches within onshape. They can confirm a good fit, then order the correct part. In a old school CAD system, I'd just make a read only copy of the file, and if they "blow up" the sketch, they could just reopen it and start over. I do want them to be able to edit sketch entities by double clicking on the "dimension" of the sketch. I'd also like these NON CAD employees to be able to share these files with outside customers for demonstration purposes. Effectively allowing them to share how we reach our order "decision" using the sketch as proof. So... not sure if they'd need to have my onshape login to be able to share. Thank you!
