Why and how should you protect your 3D design?
You have spent hours burning your brain to come up with a 3D printed model of your favorite 3D tool. Needless to say, you are really proud of your prized possession. But wait; do you really own it? I know, you have printed the model so it’s yours technically, but what about its design? Can you permit someone to copy it without you having a say in that. You spent weeks, probably months, to come up with this design, remember! How in the world would you prove that the 3D printed model is solely your brain child?
Get your work registered
To prove that your are the owner of a particular piece of work, third party intellectual property registration services come into play. What they will do is, for a nominal fee, they'll accept the digital file of the design you have and timestamp it within their secure storage system. Like this you can get your 3D design registered and prove it in some way that you are indeed its owner. You have a third party documentation providing evidence of your works along with the date since you own it, both literally as well as intellectually.
Here’s how the service works
A service of its kind worth mentioning over here is that offered by ProtectRite. This is how the service works.
