Deliberate Mistakes Could Be the Key to Protecting 3D Printed Parts from Theft


As previously reported on 3D Printing Industry, the protection of intellectual property (IP) in CAD files is a chief concern, not only for independent designers, but for companies seeking security over digital assets.

As a solution to design theft, a research team at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, propose a security feature for CAD files to make them fail if 3D printed incorrectly.

We reported last year on research that introduced flaws into a 3D print for malicious purposes, however this latest paper aims to use the flaws in a 3D print for good, rather than evil.
