About commercial use of the designs
Find below the FAQ regarding the commercial use of McGybeer designs.
Can I sell prints of your designs?
Short answer: No, just the authorized sellers
All the designs listed by McGybeer are for personal and non-commercial use only.
Free designs are protected under the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license, which means that, if you give the proper credit, you can share the original material. You can not use it commercially in any way, even the remixes/derivatives.
Paid designs are uploaded to Cults3D and MyMiniFactory, and the license of these platforms complements the license above. Find the details in the Cults3D Copyright FAQ and the MyMiniFactory Object Licensing page.
Therefore, you need the authorization to sell prints of any of my designs.
How can I become an authorized seller?
The number of authorized sellers is limited and right now I'm not accepting new ones.
For this reason, I will NOT reply to these applications and messages, but I'll keep the contact info so I can reach you in the future if a spot becomes available.
Currently, there are exclusivity agreements in Canada, Australia, Russia, and Scotland.
If you want to become an authorized seller and you are not located in any of these territories, please fill this form.
I just want to print some for my friends and family...
If you are printing a few for your family and close friends, that's fine. But you can't ask them for money, even to cover the printing expenses. Because that's considered commercial use and that's not allowed, as explained above.

Why you don't have a Patreon for Commercial License?
I've created a Patreon to be closer to makers that want to support my work, and hear their feedback, suggestions, and ideas. However, for the time being, I don't want to use it for Licensing purposes.
Regarding the designs:
I just design what I want and when I want, and I always have projects ongoing in parallel. Is that easy. I can't guarantee a minimum number of designs per month o per year, and I don't want people to feel scammed if they subscribe for a monthly payment expecting new designs every month. So I only ask for support if you are willing to do so. Of course, there are some benefits and free stuff 😉
Regarding the selling permission:
My designs are not easy to print, and I want to be sure that the prints delivered to customers have good quality. The only way to accomplish this is by having control over the authorized sellers. Yes, I know I'm losing money this way. But for me my designs are more important than the money.
