3D Printable Model Files

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 29, 2015, 8:37 AM
Recently I have been getting some questions regarding the 3D model files and 3D printable models that I have built - specifically if I could give or sell the original 3D model files that I have built so that they can be printed by someone that owns or has access to a 3D printer. Sorry but the answer is "no."

There are three reasons: The first is that even though the person asking says they just are going to print one copy for their cosplay costume, what guarantee do I have that the file will not be offered for sale through an online store, like TurboSquid or Shapeways, or mass printed for profit? Sorry but that's why I have these printable models available for purchase on my Shapeways store. At some point I would like to buy my own 3D printer but for now Shapeways is the best option.

The second reason I don't give or sell them is different 3D printing processes require different wall thickness, tolerances, limitations on binding box sizes or alignments. Models that can be printed using a laser/nylon powder process might not be as easily printed using an extruded filament process.

And finally the third reason is what rights do I have as the file's creator when it is 3D printed? This is a gray area and as 3D printers inch their way closer to Star Trek type matter replicators, what can be made will be a debate for the future.

Here is an interesting article on Copyright and 3D Printing worth a read

A SciFi geek at heart, my love of modeling started with plastic model kits, but when that became too expensive I stopped. After tech school I got a job as a drafter at an electrical engineering office which turned into being a CADD operator. For those curious AutoCAD 2.17 was the first real CADD program I used. Using AutoCAD I transitioned into 3D modeling and animation using 3D Studio and later Carrara. Now I am hoping to land a job that I can use my 3D modeling/graphic abilities.
