We usually save a 'snapshot' of our drawings as either PNG, JPG, JPEG, GIF, or BMP, and just post the picture of the drawing.

The forum limits are so small that it is unlikely you'll ever get a normal CAD drawing file to load..... but a "picture' of one will usually fit.

You have to keep a drawing VERY simple, with no extra colors of textures, or you just can't make the 100kb limit......... and besides, only SketchUp (SKP) files are allowed.

It works to post excell files in a zip folder. I wonder if that would work for your software?
