Sharing CAD models
I would like to share some CAD models but fear the manufacturer may seek charges for exposing designs or something like that. How is everyone able to freely provide these models without fear of litagation?
Since you're in America here is some advice:
Do not upload anything you created for the company you work for.
Do not upload anything you created while "on the clock".
Do not upload anything you created using software or hardware that resides on the premises of your company.
Do not upload anything that has a Corporate logo of any kind.
Do not upload anything that has a confidentiality notice or export law clause on the drawing.
The rule of thumb is, if you have to think about it, you may be sued.
