I'm interested in creating a 3D model for my display case- similar to what can be ordered here. However, since the model I want (a Talocan frigate) isn't available for sale in the EVE store, I was wondering if it would be alright to submit a job to a company to print the model for me only. What is CCP's stance on this? Do I need express permission from CCP for every job; or can I submit jobs for any ship/model that isn't for sale in the store?

I keep meaning to get one of these beasties for the giggles, I'm pretty sure I'd have some spare isk kicking around for models in the right format. Being a complete bear I'd rather like a little Orca keychain thing ya know?

I'm assuming someone going "Hey, 3d printer models for free here, donate isk to X" isn't naughty of course.

okay this question should get the lawers knickers in a twist..


If the 3d printout is nice and i really want one could i offer isk to the maker to print me one off, not as payment of course but as an ingame thank you for a nice out of game thingy :)

If they gave it to you as a gift, you might slip by, depending on how their lawyers define "personal use".

Of questions like this might just make them say "Don't do it, ever, or we will sue you into small bloody tatters and then we'll really get mean."

Something tells me that would cost about as much as a cheap automobile.

As above, it really depends on how well fed and watered CCP's attack lawyers are. If they're a bit hungry you're likely to get sued just for the giggles.

If they're kept nicely muzzled like any legal department should be you'll be fine.

The helmet, probably.

The CNC is more on the order of a small to moderately sized airplane.

CCP _ You guys kick ass - You guys are really a model to follow when it comes to easing IP/Copyright restrictions for your fan bases personal use.

If only the RIAA/MPAA could learn from you.

Thanks - it is TRULY appreciated and honestly, as much of reason for the success of EVE and anything else.

i've actually built my own 3d printer, and did email CCP about commercial use of it for eve ships several months ago. never got a response though. :(

of course right now i'm in the middle of moving so everything's packed and stored... can't exactly show any examples at the moment. doh.
