Non-commercial use

Postby Happycamper » Wed Mar 05, 2014 2:32 pm

The window that pops up when starting the software says free-non commercial use. Does this mean I can't use it to print objects for sale? Thanks!

That 'non-commerical use' clause is referring to selling a printer along with the software. That requires a vendor license. You're good to use the program to produce anything in any commercial venture you'd like.

Thanks! I figured it was the case, but wanted to make sure I'm legit. I'm about to start a build! Thanks!

Thank you for clarifying this Steve, I wondered about the Licensing too. Thank you for creating this software masterpiece!

Steve, if extra functionality [plugins, etc.] are available for me to display my company logo (strictly for use in my shop!) on multiple computers, and not for distribution outside my shop, how much would that cost to be able to tweak the splash, logos, etc, but maintaining your copyrights, and due recognition? Thanks!!

I'm sure we can work something out that's reasonable. Changing the Splash screen and color theme is fairly easy. How many computers will it be on?

Hi Steve,
Not sure how this hobby will scale, but maybe from 1-3 working units initially. But possibly more in the future. Thanks!!
