SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- San Francisco, 30/10/2013 – Authentise, the leading licensing platform for digital manufacturing, and Autodesk Inc., a leader in design software and 3D printing applications, announced a strategic partnership today at the Autodesk Pier 9 Workshop in San Francisco. The companies will integrate features of their respective software, allowing the world’s biggest brands to securely offer their designs for 3D print.

Autodesk has evolved from being a pioneer of design software to a leader in digital manufacturing applications and 3D printing. Earlier this year the company announced their Spark platform that will make 3D printing simpler and more reliable. The platform is the industry’s first open 3D printing platform. By integrating Authentise’s secure streaming technology in the Spark platform, Autodesk can propel its adoption by brands, manufacturers and other design owners concerned about the integrity of their intellectual property.

Authentise optimizes and securely streams designs directly to printers, giving design owners and marketplaces the freedom to distribute their content securely. As physical supply chains turn digital, streaming tools are required to reassure rights holders and unlock the full potential for 3D printing. Authentise’s streaming API is the standard way to address these intellectual property concerns. This partnership cements this claim while simultaneously providing Authentise’s customers with early, integrated access to many of Spark’s tools that make 3D printing more reliable.

“Authentise understands the needs at the frontier of 3D printing thanks to the ground-breaking 3D printing pilots built by its service team for Fortune 100s,” commented Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “The combination of Autodesk’s and Authentise’s tools is a powerful start to addressing these challenges, and we are excited to collaborate on additional development to make distributed manufacturing a global reality.”

“As 3D printing becomes more widely adopted by both corporations and consumers alike, protecting intellectual property is more important than ever,” said Samir Hanna, general manager and vice president, 3D Printing at Autodesk. “Autodesk and Authentise are working together to incorporate IP protection as a standard feature in the 3D printing process.”
