Non Commercial Use
We wanted anyone, anywhere in the world, to be able to download designs for local fabrication and we wanted to reward creators financially when their plans were used commercially.
So, whilst plan licensing is entirely at the creators discretion (and we will happily accommodate other plans, including open source and proprietary licenses), many creators have released their plans for download under a Non-Commercial license.
With these designs, you have two options:
1. Downloading plans for personal usefor non-commercial use.
2. Buy the product directly from Fabricator or contact a Prefered Workshop in the Fabricator Network.When purchasing from a Prefered Workshop, , a royalty payment is automatically factored into the cost that you pay.

Definition of Non-Commercial Use:
Creative Commons provides broad guidance on the definition of commercial use; summarized as:
A commercial use is one primarily intended for commercial advantage or monetary compensation.
To clarify this, we have established the following principles. It is unambiguous commercial use when anyone:
1. charges a fee or makes a profit when making a Fabricator product.
2. sells (or bases a commercial service ) on a Fabricator product.
It follows from this that non-commercial use is when you make a Fabricator product yourself, with no intention to gain commercial advantage or monetary compensation. For example, the following qualify as non-commercial use:
1. You are an individual with your own CNC machine, or access to a shared CNC machine, and will personally cut and make a Fabricator product yourself
2. You are a student (or teacher) and you use the design files for educational purposes or training (and do not intend to sell the resulting parts)
If you are interested in obtaining a Commercial License, please join our community as a Professional Workshop.
You may contact us directly to purchase a commercial license or arrange a specific distribution deal.
