Customer View Modeling (IP Protection)
SpaceClaim makes it easy for engineers to create lightweight models for customer and supplier interaction. Its tools enable engineers to remove the internals of a part or an assembly and preserve only the outer surfaces. This is a critical step because it protects companies’ intellectual property while sharing designs for form and fit.
Reverse engineering has become a necessity in today’s market and all major companies are devoting resources into figuring out how competitors are creating new, innovative products. Because of this new trend it is extremely important to protect any data leaving your company. Even if a model is sent in a generic file format, it can be modified, reverse engineered, and manufactured. By removing geometry before sending models out, you can effectively control your intellectual property (IP). With SpaceClaim, you can confidently ensure that viewers cannot recover model information from the resulting customer view model file.
