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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
