Description

Wake up call to Thingiverse.

I just created www.wikicadmodels.org, whoever is interested can create an account and upload his stuff. we can make it happen. I will find a model to support the expenses. You own your stuff, whatever you upload to www.wikicadmodels.org will follow under "Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported"

 Doesn't change anything. There is one point doe. Thingiverse needs to have double license. One that you choose and another one that protects you and others when they print or modify your work, without getting one guy suing another or thingiverse.

 It doesn't need to end there. The site is a virtual domain where multiple web apps can run in parallel. I started with a wiki trying to get others to join in the effort of building an organization with non-profit goal, like wikipedia.
A place where projects can evolve and efforts shared.

I love the idea. Thingiverse has needed some alternatives for a while so it's good recent events prompted this.

The irony of this is that building competition is why the Replicator2 is closed source.
Using a wiki is interesting, but comes with use-ability challenges particularly for new users. My experience with students trying to contribute to wikipedia and appropedia show you will need to develop an intuitive interface and limit all actual markup editing to a minimum or for advanced users. The most successful open source appropriate technology databases are wikis though so there is some precedent - see discussion thingiverse.com/thing:30880

Ah, another Thongiverse and Weaponiverse. We have had people try this before. It usually fails a few days in. When you get started on it you will realize just how much time and effort and money Makerbot put into developing this website. But good luck anyway.
