Sharing via Public Links

Note

You must be a writer or an administrator in a space to enable public links for its contents.

A public link is a web address that you can give to anyone to allow them to view, but not to edit, content available on Lumis 3D. A person who receives a public link does not need to log in to Lumis 3D to view the shared content.

A file for which the public link is active is shown with a image31.png logo.

Sharing via public links is a two-step process:

  1. First, activate the public link for the content you want to share.

  2. Then, provide the public link address to the person you want to share the content with.

Warning

Anyone with a public link to a file can view the file. Activating a public link makes a file potentially visible to everyone on Lumis 3D's network. If your Lumis 3D is accessible via the internet, your file is available to everyone on the web.

When you deactivate a public link, the link address is permanently deleted. This means that if you share a link address with someone, then deactivate the file's public link, their link address will no longer work.

If you plan to share the link again, just reactivate it in the Link sharing window.
