How do you share files externally?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

Just wondering what you all use to share files with your clients and external consultant team?

 

I'm looking for something more professional than email, WeShare, Dropbox, etc and less extensive than Newforma Project Centre.

 

What are the options?

 

Thanks

Paul

You might want to consider Etransmit, which is an Autocad functionality.

It is highly configurable, if you click into the modify settings dialog.

Thanks Dadgad. We do use etransmit already. It's the next step - sharing the file with others external to the business that I'm asking about.

There are many professional document sharing platforms. I have worked with asite in the past, as well as bricsys 24/7 they both work really well.

Thanks @steven-g

Asite looks good though probably too involved for what we need.

Bricsys 24/7 could be a good fit. I'll give it a try

I don't use it much these days, but we have Box for that purpose here. Autodesk has DRIVE, you might look at that as well.

We use WeTransfer.

Up to 2GB with the free version, available for download for a week.

The paid version let's you send up to 20GB at a time, and it doesn't expire after a week.

Lots of options how you choose to set it up.

Thanks @SLW210 I'll have a look at Box and I guess Dropbox as well. Will look at Autodesk Drive and also just found out I have access to Autodesk Docs as part of my AEC Collection subscription.

 Thanks @Dadgad will check out the paid version. I think the concern with the free version was security and also how it looked (couldn't brand it with logo)

We don't need the paid version, but it is pretty reasonable,

and the configurability looked quite good when I checked it out.   :|
