Got me a bit intrigued here, I’m a 3d art hobbyist for about 20 years now, and a Star Trek fan since I was a kid. I had planned on making my own miniatures for the game eventually also found some nice ships on thingiverse to print.
On the shapeways marketplace they let sellers sell star trek related prints, not sure how the copyright situation works with the license for sellers on their site. The cost of printing threw a service like shapeways could get pretty expensive if you want fine detail.
Seems like DarkCenturion needs some generic characters, that not only could fit in the star trek universe but could possibly be from any Sci-Fi setting. Unless they resemble a specific design from the movies or TV shows of Star Trek.
Is it possible to sell or share our own 3D files of Star Trek related miniatures legally?
Also had this idea for a 3D miniature sellers marketplace where artist could set up their own store and get commissioned to produce miniatures for people, but I don’t have the lobes for that sort of business. Wouldn’t know where to begin, but would be nice if there was a place where artists could connect with people looking for specific content for their table top games.
I know there’s a legal term called fan Art which makes it possible to make Art of a existing IP with out selling it, but when you sell I’m not exactly sure how legal that is. Like my lobes I’m not much of a lawyer either.
