the best way should be to create a shared link and not to share a file... that will allow also people without dropbox to download the file :)

Does it mean you modelled it with FreeCAD and made drawings and material bills with FreeCAD and these documents where used to build the mast?

Hello Bernd,

my part of the project was to design the layout of the mast and to do the static calculation.
Thats my job since 25 years. Sometimes I draw in freecad for checking complex geometries.
And I can submit monitor snapshots to the CAD-technicians for better explaining them
what I want do build. Then they produce the detailed technical drawings. In Autocad.
The Telekom (like the Deutsche Bahn, see link below) wants all drawing-files in the "original"
Autodesk dwg/rvt-format. The sub-contractors are fully responsible for ensuring 100% data-compatibility
between the cad-systems. They want to avoid stress with the Telekom, so everybody works with
products from autodesk.
