    Hi,

    Does the underlined statement mean that the architect through a request make aware contractors and owners to be attention to not release CAD files uncarefully?

    Architects routinely share PDF files with contractors and owners alike. They view a request for them to release electronic CAD files
    with concern, however.


    Thanks

    It means that they are wary of releasing CAD files.

    They don't want someone altering their designs, or stealing them to use on future projects. They regard the design files, in their original CAD format, as their intellectual property. Pdf files are read only and not able to be stolen so easily.
