Rather than upload a complex model as parasolid, can I simply upload a link to the cloud based CAD design.

I have a fairly complex horizontal stream engine I designed and run. I have a complete model including all parts, sub- assemblies and top level assembly I want to make freely available to everyone. Currently it is in the public domain within Onshape.

Rather than exporting to parasolid, then uploading to GrabCad, I want to simply upload the hyperlink to the model where everything is available for anyone to download.

Can I do this?

You can upload your model as solidworks format, this is accepted. Or upload an IGS or stp file, these formats are very extended and normalized

In the description of the model, you can put a hyperlink, for sure

Attaching a URL to the model requires that anyone trying to use it also has Onshape.
GrabCAD also requires that 3D data is attached when a model is uploaded, otherwise it does not seem to appear in any search results in the library.

As Carlos suggested, exporting and uploading a Step, Parasolid, SAT, or IGES model will allow everyone to make use of the model in their preferred CAD system.
