Research on makers and modular design

by lauraasion

Hi maker community! I am conducting a survey as part of an investigation by the University of Zaragoza (Spain) about makers and modular design. Would you be so kind to do it and collaborate in the dissemination? The more answers the better!

Droid Parts

by Insatiable

So, I am well aware of the DMCA takedown notice. That said, does the creator "Heref" have the droid parts in an OPENSCAD file? I have been trying to alter them with Meshmixer to turn the hand 90 degrees, but because he used rectangles, I am having no end of issues.

Lego DMCA takedown

by kresty

Lego seems to have told Thingiverse to get rid of anything with the word "Lego" in it. I've seen a couple things that the thing themselves shouldn't be too bad. And my parametric bricks were taken down. I'm guessing that they're nitpicking on the trademark "Lego" being misused (instead of something like "Lego compatible", which wouldn't necessarily violate the trademark?)

Some of the things are definitely more blatant copies of the more recent & probably still copyrighted parts (like minifigs). Others would be a stretch and feel like a bit of overreach to me.
