You can easily hand over a downloaded project, either with or without the HoloViewer file. Just copy the project folder or the complete HoloViewer folder to a (thumb) drive, e.g. on a USB flash drive, for others to get access. If you only transfer the project, please note that the recipient has to install the Holoviewer (either for  Windows –  32-Bit or  64-Bit – or macOS) to be able to view the project.

You can also share your online projects via the sharing options in the Web Editor - learn more
