Model Security! Take it Seriously!

I just returned from a trip to Huntington Beach, CA where I attended the inaugural Revit Technology Conference of North America. I have to say that it was one of the best conferences I've ever attended and that's saying a lot for someone that spent three blurry years living in Las Vegas.

One of the recurring themes that came up over and over was model security. Just what exactly is it and what are you doing to make sure that your models contain adequate security? There are many methods and techniques for you to achieve model security, and they were all debated heavily and often throughout the conference.

I proposed my idea on model security and what I'm doing to make sure that all of my models are at their optimum security performance. I prefer a non human approach to model security. Something with some sort of motion sensor that doesn't take shit off of nobody, but still has a sense of humor and doesn't eat too much. Turrets are a great selection for such a medial task and are 40% reliable at least 60% of the time. These turrets are also very cheap to replicate throughout your models.

The turrets shown here are rigged with parametric motion sensing lasers to provide a fully adjustable motion sensing distance. Smaller spaces will require a shorter range while larger spaces may require longer motion sensing distances. These wonderful model security devices can to both all while costing very little to keep operable!!

You can download this model security device here for a limited time. The license to use these devices come with a cost however. You will be required to leave a comment describing your model security needs and how many you intend to place within your model to achieve the level of security that you require. These devices have not been tested with government installations and are not suggested for any form of government or even commercial use whatsoever, mostly due to the fact that they are not entirely reliable all of the time.

Take good care of your turret(s) and enjoy the videos below demonstrating their capabilities as I find them a very valuable means for model security.
