-Customers have asked for a way to apply a unique watermark to geometric objects in files so they can be traced. Rhino 5.0 has added a tool that can be used to watermark curves, surfaces and polysurfaces. The watermark persists when objects are saved, copied, transformed,​ exploded or exported. If a user does not know the watermark pass phrase, then there is no way for a user to detect that an object is watermarked.+Customers have asked for a way to apply a unique watermark to geometric objects in files so they can be traced.

 So, how can you use watermarking to your advantage? If you are sharing a valuable model with an outside entity, watermark every object in the model before you send it out. If you later find a part of your model someplace it should not be, load it into Rhino and see if it has your watermark. ​ If so, then you can start asking questions. So, how can you use watermarking to your advantage?
