Available Licensing

When uploading or downloading files from part repositories be aware of the licensing that has been selected for the model. Some websites allow users to pick from multiple licenses with others specifically forcing one license. Be aware that some licenses do not allow use by commercial entities.

For more information on licensing check out: Creative Commons and If the repository/marketplace you are using does not allow or use CC or GNU licensing be sure to read through their FAQ or Terms of Service.

Website Source Code

Does the website make available the source code that runs it? With the Free Open Source Software and Hardware nature of RepRap it is nice to see websites also following principals.


Any extra notes about the repository/marketplace that doesn't fit in the other current feature categories.
