Thingiverse user Geoffro shared a great 3D Printed project on thingiverse. Jabba’s Rancor is a 3D printable game piece for a fan based Star Wars desktop game.

Star Wars, all characters, planets, moons, droids, creatures and Bantha fodder are Restricted Trademarks of Disney/Lucasfilm
This is a fan-based game designed and printed at absolutely no profit. No employees, No Kickstarters, no crowd funded hoopla. No parts of this game, models or meshes can be sold, at all, ever.

Disney (now) and will always hold the rights to send me a cease and desist letter. Please help me complete the game for you so we may all enjoy it, by abiding to the above rules.

Any questions, improvements or concerns can be directed to [email protected]

Please Read the Instructions for printing tips and info.

This project is interesting because it’s a great example of fans contributing to a brand with 3D Printing. We’ve seen a few big companies release STL files, but in this case the fans are contributing to the brand by creating their own pieces for the desktop game. To avoid a DCMA take down notice or any other legal issues Geoffro clearly disclaims the STL files should not, in any way, be sold and also gives proper attribution to Disney/Lucasfilm.

Geoffro was able to make the game piece a 12 piece snap fit design using ball joins from thingiverse user chicuco. This is great example of Thingiverse being used as a platform for open-source driven design. Here at Adafruit, we love seeing open-source projects getting contribution and awesome derivatives.
