Q & A
Can I print the tracks on my home 3D printer and in my layout?
Yes, you can. You can print as many as you need.
Can our LUG, or a member of our LUG, buy a 3D printer and print tracks for LUG members?
Yes, as long as those tracks are used in LUG or personal layouts. The LUG / LUG members cannot sell the tracks unless they have our written permission, see commercial use.
Can our LUG, or a member of our LUG, be compensated for the printing costs?
Yes, as long as the compensation is to cover the production costs (cost of the printer, material, electricity, etc.) Selling the tracks with profit is commercial use and requires our permission
Can I print tracks for a friend?
Yes. The same rules as those for LUG/LUG members explained above apply.
Can I print tracks and sell them with profit?
If you ask us first and get our written permission, you can. In fact, we encourage 3D print fans to start printing and selling our tracks to the AFOL community.
Are there any licensing costs involved to print the tracks?
No, we provide the models free of charge. If you’re grateful that we provide them or you want to support this project you can give us a donation.
If I sell prints of these tracks, do I need to pay a commission?
No, you don’t need to pay us anything. You just need our permission to sell them and respect our terms.
Why do I need permission to sell the tracks?
Because we want to prevent abuse:
  • We’re looking for enthusiasts to provide prints to their local/the AFOL community. We will not allow our models to be used in a way that we believe in not beneficial to our community, or by entities that have harmed the community in the past.
  • We want to protect the consumers from makers that provide sub-quality prints or any other form incorrect customer service. You can find a list of approved resellers on our website.
Can I remove the 4DBrix brand name from the model?
If you sell the tracks, you cannot remove the 4DBrix brand name. If you print the tracks for personal use, you can, but we would appreciate if you don’t.
Can I email the model to a friend?
No, you cannot, but you can send the download link to your friend. This project is partially funded by the web traffic generated with the website. Distributing our models reduces the traffic to our web site and undermines the viability of this project. So if you want to share our models, please provide a link to the corresponding download page on or website.
