Wouldn't it be useful to be able to (optionally) embed an expiration date within a BIMx file that is honored by the viewer apps?

In cases where one sends various model revisions to a client, it would be one way to assure that that are looking at the current version and not an old version (for those clients who might be organizationally challenged). Or, a way to share a preliminary design with a community... that you don't want to live on forever on the internet. ;-)

I would vote on it. It sound like a good wish also from an Intellectual Property protection viewpoint.


Not sure where/how I posted this originally... thought I had posted it in a wish forum, but I guess not. :oops:

Voting is now open. ;-)

Roll the Mission Impossible Music... "this BIMx file will self destruct in 5 seconds".

Wish I could do it to PDF files too.
