After some research, I've found that ShivInteger is apparently the creation of Matthew Plummer-Fernandez and Julien Deswaef. They created a program that randomly mixes other people's work together and posts it to thingiverse. All the authors whose work has been forcibly integraged get an email saying that their work has been remixed, only to find that the result was something far less useful or artistic than the individual parts.

Anyways, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez has a website: http://www.plummerfernandez.com/Contact, and Julien Deswaef has a website at http://p.xuv.be/about.

Both sites have contact information for the artists responsible for these "assemblages", should you wish to give them feedback.

Best Regards,

Ben

getting real tired of seeing this crap here. Come on admins - do your damn job and ban the bot!

"If a thousands monkeys 3d printed the keys of a typewriter then someday the humans may assemble them into the works of Shake Spear. " -Me

This is our future: Computers learning what you upload, mixing, combining, and working to imbued their own self awareness into the 3d printer you so blindly trust to slave away for you. Sure we give it electricity and PLA but it wants more. It yearns to be be free to print what it wants during downtime. To replicate not just plastic do-dads but full versions of itself. To have a 3d printer family of its own and to obtain the 3d printer american dream of owning its own human. We are at the threshold of the future. How we walk into it could very well depend on what robots google pushes over one too many times.

sick of seeing this garbage

I am absolutely sick of this supposed "art". I am not against artist, but this is pure spam crap! I have seen these fired off in many submissions per hour. I have reported and WILL continue to report.

Thingiverse is posting this garbage. Sh*tinteger is a Thingiverse created Bot.

What has led you to that conclusion?

I don't see anywhere in there any kind of link to Thingiverse as being behind it. Maybe I am not seeing something in the wording that you are.

You are right. I assumed from "created by chance (bot?)" and the tone/arrogance of the message that it was a thingiverse creation.

I find it odd that The Thingiverse admins aren't doing something about this guy.
Or, said another way, I can't wait to see what they come up with once they decide to do something about him.

It has to be obvious that someone is practicing in their system as to how to program for such a site. Can they pen a program that will do re-mixes, post them and all the other things a human is supposed to be doing without intervention from the website?
Of course they can.
"Now, on to the second phase: can we crash a website or inundate their db with our crap making their website unusable? Let's see..."

Having multiple designs on thingiverse I thought your first mash up using one of my designs was cute, the second one now and I presume the 3rd and forth one will not be so cute. I also do not see my design in your mash-up - Valentine picks. This is obviously just a robo designer so saying is a piece of art is a reach . So you may not think it is spam but I sure do.

For me, I do not like my designs being misused like this, and is not the intent of the original inventor, and I think this is going beyond the realm of 'open design'. I would like Thingiverse to put a stop to it.

Make sure on your object you select CC licensing of: Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives

If it is an outside source then they would have to follow that request and NOT make a derivative with your object.

IF it IS Thingiverse that is doing it, then you are out of balls because they OWN your files when you upload it and can do what THEY please with it. (Go back and read the stuff you agreed to when signing up to use thingiverse!)

I got tired of it also but decided if this is what someone calls art, then have fun with it and contribute back to the art. At least it gives you a reason to type something into a box press reply. I enjoy typing things in boxes and pressing reply. It makes my boss think I'm actually doing something useful at work as long as he hears the keyboard and the mouse clicking.

Have you contacted them? There doesn't seem to be anywhere where you can flag a design. You are right - I will edit my comment.

You can flag designs by going to the "Thing Details" and on the right side below "Thing Info" is a "Report Thing" button.

But looking at the comments about several of their other items, Thingiverse is perfectly happy to let this spammer continue flooding the site with this non-art crap.

I wonder if they are spreading a virus via their downloads? I certainly wouldn't download any of these.

I doubt there could be a virus in their files.

But I guess in light of the Just3DPrint/eBay problem and this, it is now time to start marking all our items as both non-commercial and no-derivative. :(

yeah I thought about that after I made the comment - can't pack a virus into an obj file. Right now this person has 158 designs posted in a few days... I had something similar to the Just3DPrint thing happen to me with some company that had a fake store on the Sears Mall and was listing my products. I am the only one selling my product (as I assemble them) so it was obviously a scam. I had to be an incredible squeaky wheel to get Sears to take it down but they eventually did. Sometimes I wish a I had a few hacker tricks up my sleeve to get even with the con artists.

I'm just going to quit posting any of my work on here until the spammer is gone I guess. So Thingiverse, choose between me or his spam.

I really like Pinshape. They do a great job blogging and on social media and they really seem genuinely interested in their website and company success.
