@Sockratease I agree 100% on all points.

My brother in-law is a commercial artist, recently, his work for a radio station has been plastered all over buses, billboards and miscellaneous other places. He did the work in 3D, submitted it to his client, got paid and that's the end of it. Nowhere is his name used so nobody knows it's his work unless I tell them.

This "3D Encryption Software" is useless. A good artist does not need it for any reason because the studio or consumer will be happy to pay them for their work, it's up to the artist to negotiate this with the client.

Your right. It is somewhat like stock photography and it isn't. Photos unlike 3d images contain so much more and so much more can be done with them. A picture of a gun does nothing, but a 3d printed gun can.  A 3d hero model asset for a video game can easily be turned into a toy.  Its not a silver bullet and it is really really hard to make something like this.  Currently though, we are making it so that your 3d assets are trackable to a degree and we are getting legal counsel to get the right metrics so that a creator/author of the item will have information that would stand in a court of law. My name is Dosa, and I am a 3d artist, and part of the D3CRYTP3D team.  Ive been in the industry for a hot second and worked as a concept artist and generalist. During my tenure, I would see scores of models used/stolen 3d objects used for various productions. Is it right, probably not...but its also the culture of 3d. 3d takes time to make, its a craft and its probably the most under rated job in the arts field.  It takes time to learn anatomy, to retopo a sculpt, to make hardsurface models that perfect to the curve.  I do think that its important to protect this items and that creators have a leg up on employers who just steal assets online. You can go online and download Transformers models from the movie on some torrent sites. I don't owe Michael Bay or the orginal modeller anything but what happens if you make something and Michael bay uses it. Unfortunately the studios do have lawyers and not everyone is made of Bay money.  The time and location where your 3d objects open up are only privy to the author/owner of the 3d items.  As for spyware, I am not a programmer by trade.  Going into this I discovered that my definition of spyware is eveything that exist on my I phone and every program I own give metrics to a company. It sucks. Its the world we live in. If you have a phone and you are on a computer, someone has metrics on you unless your are super savvy hacker. I can't say that I am but the crew at D3CRYPT3D are vetting every which way to make it very difficult for any hacker to get access to your items. Privacy is something I am pretty big on and I am sure the rest of the crew feels the same way.  If you have any questions or suggestions, hit us up. If you think its a terrible product it might be. Its just that being in the industry, I felt I had to do something.  Its my small f-you to studios and clients that think that 3d artists are to walked all over on. Thats my 2 cents!  Feel free to hit me up anytime kim@d3crypt3d.net. I'm pretty busy but ill do my best to get back to you.

Hey everybody,

BIG NEWS!
D3CRYPT3D has been chosen as a finalist for the SXSW 2017 Interactive Innovation Awards! We have been nominated in the category of Privacy & Security.
My name is Chloe. Me and my team came up with D3CRYPT3D in response to the growing issue of artists getting their work pirated after spending countless hours and sweat equity into their work. The beta just launched over a week ago and we have been getting some fabulous responses with regards to improvements, features etc. Here is an updated explanation on how the software works. Please check it out smiley 

Also, check out our feature on 3dprint.com and 3ders.org

https://3dprint.com/153731/d3crypted-software-ip-protection/

http://www.3ders.org/articles/20161102-d3crypt3d-launches-accessible-3d-printable-file-encryption-to-fight-3d-asset-theft.html



Why would I want to use D3CRYPT3D?

You spend countless hours on your 3D creations. These files are sought after and worth real money. Your assets by nature need to change hands after they are created. Our New Build is up and wanted to say thanks to all those who have tried it. I will always post up here when there are changes to this program. Hope this helps you out. This is a more comprehensive explanation of how our program works. 

D3CRYPT3D utilizes AES-256 Bit cryptography to fully encrypt the 3D asset itself. During encryption, SHA-2 hashing is utilized to uniquely identify the asset and allow for tracking. Inside the encryption, identifying metrics are stored which allow for full tracking of the asset from the moment it is encrypted. These metrics remain with the .OBJ file after it is unencrypted. The metrics, however, remain in an encrypted form.  

D3CRYPT3D differs from Winzip and 7-zip in several ways:
1. There is no compression algorithm applied
2. The file type remains the same and can be opened in its native application, even in an encrypted state.
3. Asset tracking metrics are embedded in the encryption which allows for tracking throughout the lifecycle of the file.
4. The assets owner is identified by the calling card which gives the artist the ability to promote themselves and control their creations. When someone attempts to open the file, they are directed to the artist to contact them and request the access key.

D3CRYPT3D allows you share your assets with authorized parties and gives you recourse should an asset become pirated or leaked. 

The purpose of the beta is to get feedback on vulnerabilities and suggestions on enhancements and feature additions.

The first iteration of the software we release will initially be able to track down the source of a leak. The leak, however, will not be prevented.

In our second iteration of the software, we plan to integrate with several 3D software programs as a plugin and control permissions on the files from inside the programs. In addition, we will introduce a multilayered encryption which is highly enhanced and requires information from multiple separate cloud-based servers in order to properly unencrypt the file.

Without the plugin, you will not be able to unencrypt the file. After the file is unencrypted, what you can and can’t do with the file will be controlled based on the permissions granted by the owner. 

Down the line, we will introduce an encryption layer which will allow the file to remain in an encrypted state perpetually from the moment it is encrypted. This layer can then be integrated into gaming engines and 3D printers preventing the ripping of meshes from games while the assets are in play and preventing printing of unauthorized objects. If a person attempts to rip an asset, the resulting meshes will be unusable encrypted data.
We realize this is a never-ending battle. Our solutions will be defeated every so often, but our talented programmers will quickly patch the software vulnerabilities further enhancing the product.

Our cloud-based asset tracking and encryption will enable both artists and major corporate 3D asset holders to gain full transparency into the usage, dissemination, and proliferation of their assets in a managed and controlled fashion allowing them to maximize profits and snuff out piracy.

Our team has a deep and thorough knowledge of how data is stored and managed in Windows, Mac, and Pure Linux-based platforms such that we are able to architect systems and file structures in a manner which utilizes every functional aspect of a segment of data stored on a drive regardless of what platform the system is running.
We are not complicit with any government body. We champion protecting our user's data and strive to create an environment where the creator of an asset is in full control of their digital 3D assets.

D3CRYPT3D is by the artist, for the artist, and will always choose the artist first.
We need your support and feedback to help us in the endeavor of protecting 3D assets worldwide. Too much genius work is being stolen and will continue to be without this intellectual property protection. It’s time for D3CRYTP3D to protect our hard earned creations.
D3CRYPT3D. Protecting your ideas one polygon at a time.

FEATURES 
   a.   Strong Multi-Layered Encryption: Protect your valuable 3D assets from piracy

Moved to Commercial Corner as this is not Fractal Forum related news.

Have you worked out a way to allow people to use encrypted content with an offline computer?

Until then, this is useless.  And even then, I am still not convinced it will not be quarantined by anti malware and anti spyware programs.

Everything about it is suspicious and should raise alarms by any thinking user and their protection software.

Any form of tracking your customers is inherently evil and I can never bring myself to install it willingly on my system   police

Piracy is evil too - but if you want to fight evil with evil you are no better than the evil you are trying to fight, and you may as well elect Donald Trump as your president!

Nor I!

If I did I would have added a third option stating that I would use the software for  ...  Nothing at all!  Ever.

What changed?

Nevermind, probably nothing. I must have been tired when I wrote it, or I misread one of the options.

You have no idea how important what you just said. Its true. The 3D file is way more important than any picture or sound. We have started a fire regarding this issue. Definitely keep you posted on the new developments on our software. We have a bunch of lawyers and special interest groups hitting us up, but its important to our team that credit is due where credit is due. Being a modeller myself, we are in essence putting our selves out of business. I am beginning to believe that the system of 3d is set up this way on purpose. Our new beta is coming out 4.01.2017.  Its not an April's fool joke I swear! Not my decision, but if you get a chance, download it and give us some insight. Its not a silver bullet, but hopefully its a start of something that has been long overdue.

@Sockratease

The Start of D3CRYPT3D was the fact that working in the studios just made me realize how the chips are stacked angainst the 3d artist. Is d3crypt3d a silver bullet? No way, not by a long shot. We are basically killing off our own jobs. I won't mention any names, but for large studios and AAA title games, the 3d artist is the lowest on the list. Models are just being aggregated by cg marketplaces and sold. No one knowing where or who made these things. This has been a side project of ours for a full year. SXSW illustrated that its was something that the 3d industry lacked. Ever since we made our debut in Austin, we now are seeing copycats. Its all good, we expected things like this to occur. Currently this is our state of affairs at the moment, this statement was taken from a previous post from another forum cause I am very tired of typing:

  We have 256 bit encryption in the file. The award was for the new version of our software. Its been a year working on this thing and its been brutal , but its going somewhere finally.
Its funny how you can take a pic with you cell phone and get meta data. Yet making anything with 3d gives you nothing. Its also a bit crazy when you think about how lawsuits go down with music. Yet the 3d stuff we make, especially when it comes to mechanical and very technical things is been really hard with the additive manufacturing industries. We are trying to put metrics to 3d models and place them at a point of origin.  

VideoCard Issue: We have some ideals but at this junction we are more concerned about getting metrics into the model and it can be traced back to origin.
3D is the only file that you can't record with any device. You have to have that file. That's where we began our research.  We walked away from SXSW was that lawyers now have some kind of foothold. I don't really understand it but I do love making 3d. This only came about cause , the shit we make takes fluffing hours. Anatomy, Machines, Refraction, Normals, etc etc. Its makes no sense when a bad ass model is just copied and chopped up. Musicians go ape shit over a few bars. Especially when printers are making things without the knowledge of the artists and profiting. I don't know if its gonna be the answer but I think its something that needs to happen.



@3dickulus

 I deem myself as a decent artist. You can see my work at www.goma.pro. Its just not fair on what we have to go through to create what we do.  Its a mystic art to a lot of people and the shit you have to go through to make this. Its not for the weak. We have no legal rep. We by all means are part of the creative force. The fact that we are "digital" artists is not by any means lesser infact I would argue we are a lot more.
3D artists right now are more valuable than any other time. The skills we have are now sought after. Without any metrics, we have no foothold legally. THis is another excerpt from an article I wrote for.... I don't know who but you'll get the picture, the ITC International Trade Commission, can't and will not police 3d files because it cant. That being said... I think its bullshit. Here is the excerpt:

The Federal Circuit has recently made a ruling that could have a significant impact on 3D printing and digital data being transmitted from outside of the US. In the case ClearCorrect Operating LLC v. Intl Trade Comm’n, No. 2014-1527, held on November 10th, 2015, the Federal Circuit ruled that the ITC has no jurisdiction over digital data, including 3D printing files, transmitted into the United States from abroad because they cannot be considered ‘material things.’

U.S.C. section 1337 (a) gives the ITC jurisdiction only over unfair acts involving the importation of ‘articles’—which the Federal Circuit interprets explicitly as ‘material things.’ Thus, the ITC cannot police or control 3D models given that they exist in the digital, rather than the physical realm.

If 3d space has a sense of scale and proportions, it can then be replicated in a physical form to the exact measurements and details from the model itself. An exact replicate of the original. Just as easy as it is to duplicate a model with a simple command, it is currently fair game for foreign industries to print any 3d file,  to create an exact copy, without any fear of punishment. Its not illegal by definition for a foreign company to send a "duplicate" file to an American company to print. Even if the file was from a company who has patented and IP protected the product. Thus the case for ClearCorrect.  From my understanding the ITC, International Trade Commission, has nothing in place to police or control 3d models so its chalked up to it has no jurisdiction about 3D files and where and who are able to print them.
