This disclosure proposes a mechanism for auditing the content being printed in a 3D printer. It is
based in a digital signature so that some user with appropriate privileges is able to digitally sign the
parts validated by himself. This validation can be done both in the pre-print Software application or
in the printer Control Panel. Then, the printer validates that all the parts conforming the job have been
validated by checking that the contain the appropriate digital signature. All the validations are stored
in an internal database using an audit trail mechanism.
