Hello, I am new in this world of 3D printing and I am confused, I know that there are models to print and sell without problem and there are others that are for printing but only for personal use and are not available to sell, could you help me know how I differentiate. For example, this model, could I do it and sell it or not?

Hi Erasmus3ED,

Agree, 3D printed design usage can be confusing and vague!

Check the license details for how the design can be used.
This design is licensed under the Creative Commons - Attribution - Non-Commercial - Share Alike license.

So share, remix and use as you like but... no commercial use is allowed.
Basically, do not print and sell the design without my permission.

For the record and for what's its worth, I don't allow any of my designs (either digital or printed) to be sold on by another.

Then, only "commercials" can be sold without any proble, right?

Another question, in order to sell a "non-commercial" model, do I have to ask for permission and only that or do I have to pay for the model?

How did your PLA version hold up? I have one roll of PETG but its only black I'd rather have a couple in bright green or multicolor. But good design cant wait to print!

I've only every printed this design in PLA, but none have ever been put to an exhaustive testing!
PLA seems okay, but the challenging areas are the clip joints. They need a material that will not flex too much and keep the joints tight.

Thanks for comments and please let me know how you get on?

Thanks for comment!

Did you print it?

Not yet, but I loved the idea! It helps a lot those who travel a lot!

Hello! If I print with supports when removing the support break the lace. Any solution?

Not sure I understand what's breaking when you try to remove support material? But you only need supports for the main arms. Custom manual supports are great if your slicer provides those. You don't need a dense amount of support either - as little as your printer/bridging can handle.

Very cool, especially that you can print it folded and it can be quite large when unfolded :)

Hi mbthor,

Thanks for the comments but the design can't be printed folded (in one piece) - i may work on a version that can though?
You have to print the individual parts and 'clip' together.
