I am new here and I have a question:
1.) Is it allowed to download 3dwarehouse files, modify them, and then reupload them to my own account?
I need to e.g. change colors or remove the background to make them look better and similar to be used on my homepage. I think it should be allowed:
Can I download a model, modify it and then upload the modified model as my own?
Answer: Yes, but note that the unmodified version will still be owned by the original developer. The original developer will also continue to own any unmodified portions of the original model you include in your model.
2.) Is it allowed to EMBED the reuploaded models?
Can I incorporate models from 3D Warehouse into my website for use by my members?
Answer: No, this is impermissible aggregation.
I have found that but what does that mean, exactly? (I am not a native speaker)
Why is there a embed button when it is “impermissible aggregation” and what exactly does that mean?
3.) Did they change the EMBED code recently? Because the ones I did do not work any longer.
4.) Can I share (EMBED) private models? Or do they HAVE to be PUBLIC? It’s not a problem to make them public but I thought it might confuse if its just a reupload and (sometimes) not much changed to it.
My homepage is a big homepage, its main purpose is not the 3d models and I dont make any money off it. I dont want to steal anyones work etc. I just want to add this interactive element and some modes are really well done. I also did some myself but I cannot do all of them. The main reson for the reupload is, as said above, to remove the background and sometimes change colors or update them a bit.
I once added all the sources and links when it was still Google Sketchup but all the links have changed now.
I hope someone can help me out. Thanks in advance.
