License of Ultimaker Robot

Recommended Posts

No, you can't.


Every object on thingiverse has a license. When you post there are several licenses to choose from. The above link was posted by "Martijn Elserman" which happens to be the name of one of the founders of Ultimaker - I'm guessing it's the same Martijn Elserman.

The license is a creative commons license and includes both:

1) Attribution clause

2) Non commercial clause

The attribution clause means if you have to say where you got the design. You can repost this model or STL and can change the STL but you have to continue the same license. The non commercial clause means you can't sell it or make money from it in any way.

At 3D printing shows, none of the companies there show off models on thingiverse that have this second attribute. If they do they get yelled at by both people at the show and their competitors and it looks bad for their reputation. This is just an example.

Having said that - if you sell 3 of them for $1 each I don't think Martijn will care. But if you try to start a business selling these they might shut you down. You could contact him on thingiverse and get your own personal license/permission if you want. He doesn't post much on these forums so don't expect him to read this post.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
