One of the most powerful aspects of the Altium 365 infrastructure platform is its support for collaboration on a global scale. At the heart of this is the platform's support for Global Sharing. With Altium 365, you can effortlessly share your current design progress with management, or purchasing, or a potential manufacturer, in a way that is also easy for them - simplified, interactive collaboration, from any device.
Data can be shared with anyone, anywhere in the world. What you share, and with whom, is down to you, and could include:

Altium 365 Viewer provides free access to view and share your electronic designs and CAM manufacturing data through your Web Browser. No downloads, no installations and no registration required. A truly tool-neutral viewing experience that allows you to view and share designs sourced from an ever-expanding variety of supported ECAD design tools. You can even embed Altium 365 Viewer on your own website - taking the viewing experience literally to your own domain!
Altium 365 Viewer offers stunning, interactive CAD-centric renditions of your designs, including Schematics, PCB (2D and 3D) and BOM (with pricing information from Octopart). With your design loaded into Altium 365 Viewer, it is not just a static image. You'll be able to search, cross-probe, select and inspect components and nets throughout the design.
In terms of design files, the following CAD design tools are supported, along with the file formats that can be uploaded to Altium 365 Viewer:
You can upload a full design (in a Zip, Rar, or 7z archive) or an individual design file.
In terms of CAM (manufacturing), the following formats are supported for upload to Altium 365 Viewer:
You can upload a full set of Gerber files plus NC Drill data (within a Zip, Rar, or 7z archive), or an individual Gerber file.
As part of its support for Global Sharing, the Altium 365 platform provides the ability to share your designs with people outside of your Workspace team - either for viewing and commenting only, or for editing - without the need to invite them into that team. This allows invited stakeholders to view/edit (as applicable) a live, work-in-progress design project, without gaining access to your full server of design data.
Once a project is managed (registered with/available to the Workspace), you can share it with others (provided you yourself have access to do so). Sharing with people outside of the Workspace team can be performed:
You can share with:
Viewing a shared live design through the Altium 365 Platform Interface uses the interface's integrated Viewer - which opens in a separate browser tab. The integrated Viewer used to present the data contained in a shared live design uses the Web Viewer interface to present your design across four distinct data sub-views, to show the source schematic(s), board in 2D, board in 3D and Bill of Materials respectively. You'll be able to search, select, cross-probe, and inspect components and nets throughout the design and across the various sub-views as applicable. And when viewing the board in 2D, you can even take measurements. With the Comments system, you'll be able to communicate directly, and in real-time, with Altium Designer, by placing review comments directly in your browser.
As part of its support for Global Sharing, the Altium 365 platform provides the ability to upload and store 'snapshots' of your designs for viewing and sharing on a permanent basis. This allows invited stakeholders to view and comment on a snapshot of a design project from any web browser, anywhere in the world. And this functionality is delivered through the platform, but outside of an Altium 365 Workspace - so all that's needed is registration with AltiumLive to gain access.
A static design snapshot is created by uploading a design to the Altium 365 platform. This can be performed:
In terms of design files, the following CAD design tools are supported, along with the file formats that can be uploaded to the Altium 365 platform:
You can upload a full design (in a Zip archive) or an individual design file.
An uploaded design snapshot is viewed in the Altium 365 Platform Interface's integrated Viewer - which opens in a separate browser tab. The integrated Viewer used to present the data contained in a shared design snapshot offers a range of capabilities that allow detailed access to the design's data and layout. Full functionality is, of course, best enjoyed by having a full design uploaded.
To share design data for editing access, a user must be made a member of your Workspace team. Invitation to the team, and sharing of data are two specific (and separate) actions.
Direct addition of new users to the Workspace team can only be performed by an Administrator for your Workspace - from the Team and Admin-Users pages of the Workspace's browser interface. Each invited user who is not currently a member of your Workspace Team will receive an invitation email to access the Workspace. You are able to invite:
Once part of the Workspace team, you can share data with a user (for viewing only, or with the ability to edit). This can include:
As part of support for ECAD-MCAD CoDesign in Altium Designer, you can share a project with a Mechanical Engineer at the time of pushing the PCB to your Workspace and, in doing so, invite that person into your Workspace Team. You are able to share with a person that is already a member of your Workspace Team, another AltiumLive user in or outside of your organization, or a user that does not have AltiumLive (they will first need to sign up/register for an AltiumLive account before they are added to the Workspace Team).
The user will be:

A key aspect of design projects managed within a Workspace is the ability to create and share a release Build Package with others. When shared directly with your manufacturer, it can then be thought of as a Manufacturing Package, since it is the package that the manufacturer can browse, download and use to fabricate and assemble the board.
Supporting the ability to share such a package with others, and with your manufacturer (who is typically outside of your organization), the Altium 365 Platform provides a dedicated Manufacturing Package Viewer - an element of the platform's Global Sharing support - which allows others to view a manufacturing package from any web browser - anywhere in the world - but outside of your Workspace, so that your designs themselves, and other valuable IP, are kept off limits.
Each shared user will receive an email invite with a link to view a manufacturing package through the Manufacturing Package Viewer. Shared manufacturing packages are presented on the Shared with Me page of the browser-based Altium 365 Platform Interface.
The Manufacturing Package Viewer itself allows key stakeholders - and primarily the manufacturing personnel - to see a summary overview of the design, with key board data, along with the ability to browse the structure of the source, fabrication and assembly data (and to download any individual file thereof as needed). Fabrication, Assembly and BOM data sub-pages of the viewer are also provided, with the Fabrication page presenting a Gerber Viewer and allowing for comments to be added by all users whom the package has been shared with.
Ultimately, the manufacturing personnel can download a Build Package of the release they have viewed - and from any page of the Viewer - with which to get that revision of the board physically realized.
