LEO stands for Limited Edition Object. LEOs are digital assets (files) that protect and preserve a digital product or part design by controlling how it is produced on behalf of the enterprise/brand that owns it. The brand’s intent is preserved (by specifying material, compatible additive manufacturing technology, scaling allowed, etc) and the brand can specify how many items (instances) can be 3D printed from a particular LEO file. The LEO Lane service also tracks all LEOs providing a dashboard showing when, where, and how each item was produced.
