D3CRYPT3D was founded collectively by Dosa Kim, Partha Ray, and Chloe Kettell.
Kim, an established digital artist in movies and video games, and Ray, a veteran data encryption specialist, happened to live next door to one another in Los Angeles. Sharing their professional insights with each other and after many nights of discussions, they hatched the idea of writing software to protect 3D assets.
In today’s digital world, 3D files are an integral part of manufacturing, entertainment, and ideation. These 3D files are highly sought after and quite valuable. Currently, there are programs that can protect computer files, but there is absolutely no software available to protect and manage 3D assets in the public domain. In our view, that is a huge problem!
We built D3CRYPT3D because we want to solve the biggest problem in the 3D market. Digital 3D assets are being illegally downloaded and reused everywhere. Artists and creators spend hours bringing their ideas to life, only to have them stolen and used for profit by other people.
D3CRYPT3D is a cloud-based platform that allows users to share, manage, and deliver their 3D assets securely. D3CRYPT3D is designed for everyone: the artist, architect, designer, gamer, printer, and student.
The founders of D3CRYPT3D have one goal in mind. To protect the 3D intellectual property of hardworking artists and professionals.
