Uploading of CAD files

Suggestion to the GrabCad team..
Would in not be a good idea to change the way we upload our files.
First it is mandatory to upload a CAD model before the renderings can be added.
Now there are more and more entries with only renderings.
This community is about sharing, i believe, and not showing off

I have seen this issue talked about before where people don't upload files because they may be proprietary or not finished. I think in cases like that, flattened models or edrawings or 3D PDF files would be nice to upload along with the rendering do a 3D model can still be viewed by all.

Can be a good solution, but the fact stays that a lot of so called engineers
don't "play according to the rules of good practice"
As a matter of fact, some even upload renderings and models from other engineers as their own. DO NOT like this at all.
Let us keep up the good work...

The community is about sharing and I think that means keeping an open mind as to what people want to and can share with the whole community. I see allowing 2D drawings and sketches as important if someone is in the beginning stages of their project. Or like @StephenNyberg says, has IP that they only want to share on a superficial level.

I'm curious why certain users would not want to accept renderings from others, any thoughts? I love when I get new renderings.

should be easy to distinguish 3d models from 2d rendering or 2d tech drawings... i do agree that it is frustrating this "show off" but not real sharing. plus can you make easy upload file by make a simple "create new project" botton. thanks
