Intellectual property protection

The protection of the intellectual property of the 3D models can be a serious issue for every 3D modeler. It sucks when your model is posted for selling at a webside without your consent with a juicy price and you're gaining NOTHING from it. Some 3D artists are adding watermarks to their models, which can be easily removed by an amateur with a free surface modelling program (Meshmixer, Meshlab etc.). But there is an easy solution for this injustice - an invisible watermark. On Watermark3D you can add such watermark, incorporated into the mesh of your 3D model itself, which is hard for removing and can be checked on the same website during an intellectual property dispute. For the removing of the watermark you have to remesh the whole model, which will decrease the overall quality of the model substantially. I hope that I'll spare you the pain, which I experienced recently. Enjoy :)

Thanks for the reference. Can you elaborate on the IP theft you mentioned? What happened?

I  shared one of my models with an acquaintance of mine, because he wanted to test his new Prusa 3D printer with it. Later he posted it on a website for selling. I approached the problem personally, he removed the model from the site and apologized to me, this is why I won't share details about the issue (he had to print some of my models for free, of course). Now all my models are watermarked and if I have such a case, I can contact the administrator instead, my name and my institution are inserted in the mesh itself.
