3D Model Piracy Protection & Tracking – D3CRYPT3D
What a ‘l33t’ name for security software
If you’re a provider of stock 3D Models to online storefronts you may be interested in a new way to protect your assets from piracy. Also of benefit would be 3D model creators that distrubute for 3D printing. D3CRYPT3D by Padeca allows the creator to protect and track the distribution of their files via 256-bit crypto keys.
When opened in the 3D software, a placeholder model is shown and to unlock the full model you must enter an access key. The creator can see when, by whom, and how many times keys are being used. Even has a ‘self destruct’ mode!
Paceda currently offers D3CRYPT3D as beta freeware, and states the final will be a ‘freemium’ product so keep an eye out on their blog if you’re keen on this software. Their intro video is pretty horrid but they are programmers so give those nerds a pass:
