3D Printler, the Ottawa based full-service providers of all things 3D, have partnered with Secured3D for managing and protecting their STL files. You may remember 3D Printler for their battle with 3D IP theft earlier this year. In what must be every designers nightmare their STL files were stolen and sold for profit.
The court case that followed marked Canada’s first regarding STL file infringement. Thankfully they prevailed in an out-of-court settlement. Although their case was the first, it most certainly will not be the last regarding 3D IP theft. Secured3D will now be encrypting and protecting their incredible designs so they can have peace of mind while storing and sending their STL files online.
