3DLT Collaborates with 3D to Validate Intellectual Property Ownership

3DLT, a 3D printing template marketplace, is pleased to announce its collaboration with 3D (3DI). 3DLT will implement key elements of 3DI’s technology to further validate the intellectual property ownership of files it receives from designers, making one of the most secure and trusted marketplaces in 3D printing.

3DLT has committed to taking a leadership role in the intellectual property (IP) debate surrounding 3D printable files.

“We have thoroughly reviewed the process by which we onboard new designers,” says 3DLT CEO, Pablo Arellano. “We have benchmarked industry best practices around onboarding creative assets. 3DI was identified as the proven leader in this space and we are thrilled to join them in collaboration.”

The tools supplied by 3DI will allow 3DLT to take proactive steps to validate IP ownership. Specifically, 3DI’s software will cross-check 3D printable files received by 3DLT against a global database, verifying the upload and providing trackback to the author. This will tighten IP validation while creating even more global visibility for 3DLT and its designers by being syndicated to the 3DI database.

3DI CEO, Dr. Seena Rejal, says “We are excited to be working with 3DLT in implementing our advanced 3D content authentication and management solutions. This infrastructure will position 3DLT as a leading secure and transparent repository for 3D printable models.”
