3D Printed Objects Are A New Frontier For Enterprising Pirates Thanks To Reverse Engineering From Audio

A new paper published in the journal Science demonstrates that audio recordings taken during 3D printing can be used to reverse engineer the design of the printed objects (archived). The technique demonstrated is limited in that certain settings like printer temperature are not collected in the audio recording, but there are other side channels by which this information may be obtained. This technique even allows reverse engineering designs from low quality smart phone audio recordings. Sorry for your loss.

    • I would never underestimate the insanity that dominates retail and how it might make an odd course of action the most available.

      • But LVMH wouldn't use 3D printers, they would use """skilled""" workers.

        Obviously, I welcome anything that can make fake "luxury" items. If all they have to sell is a brand, tough luck.

  1. This is blindingly obvious to anybody who knows the basics of how stepper motors work.

    …probably why this article was rejected by all the engineering journals.
