If a company provides data for 3D-printing, it is important that its IP is protected and the part is only printed as permitted. An airline must be sure that a spare part is original and not counterfeit and was manufactured with the right parameters. These challenges can be met by Blockchain technology and additive manufacturing. By combining both technologies it is possible to liscence printing processes and establish a secure chain of trust from the IP-Owner, integrating a print service provider and 3D-printer up to the end user. The presentation provides a live demonstration of these use cases, using blockchain.
