    A Quick reply to Rekkert, I just got back from moving all my equipment into my own shop. (Very Happy) I will do a detailed reply to your post later today or Monday (after work.) I still have to unpack and setup everything today.

    Rekkert. please do not apologize, I did not take yours or anyones reply as hostile. I can understand the frustration by some. I love the work you do, love seeing the Science lab above as a 3D..etc I still waiting to see what others have to say about the compromise.

    Just to take a peek of what I have been working on and wanted to have on the new blueprint site. A biobed based on John Eaves sketches from Generations. I am using my Voyager biobed blueprints as reference for the size. Also converting the blueprints of the Enterprise-D Engineering workstation. Not just a remake from the blueprints, but a model that has all the framing and list of materials to build a full scale replica...

    Also just to give everyone an idea on prices for a large format scanner. Its still cheaper then having all the prints scan at the different sizes that I want. Again Rekkert, a more detailed reply later today or Monday.

    At work we use a large format scanner/printer. to scan and print our
    legacy manual and plotted cad drawings.

    I think having the blueprints available even with watermarks would be an amazing resource for people who are looking to get into recreating the sets in 3d, that is the main reason why I follow this thread. And while I regret that in recent years I have not really had much time to do any 3d work, (because reasons), having the resources to reference when I do get around to it has always helped me to keep the dream alive that one day I can get back into it.

    That biobed looks pretty cool, I'm surprised that they did not just build the bed and then use it as voyager's biobed.

    Actually, to clarify on that. The only people who hold any copyright to the images posted on an auction site, are actually the original copyright holders of the content or the Auction site itself. Once it's posted publicly as an ad, whomever buys it does not automatically inherit the sole ownership and rights of the images that are posted there.

    I'm not trying to start a fight, and I didn't say I won't continue to contribute, I'm not bragging but I've been one of the more active contributors to this entire project. My goal was to provide a free and fair repository for fans to have useful enough material to recreate the sets in 3D (much as Rekket does), without having to try to buy originals in high quality or to see content get squandered away behind a paywall.

    The instant that one person gets stuff taken down that they purchase, anyone can ask and the entire project is potentially at risk. The only position you were really in was, "Do i bow to everyone's demands for take downs, or no ones?". Using images posted on an auction site like that are considered fair use under these conditions. And since they are low quality photos and not HD scans of the original, they won't be confused as counterfeit items.

    I'm not looking to start an argument or to trigger a shitfight between people here. I'm just stating that I am very strongly against the approach of removing content at all.

    But that's my last word on the matter, I don't want to drag this discussion out or get into a full blown fight with anyone.
