    Wow. Not even printing the parts, just selling the instructions and STLs. Can you tell if it’s the same person?

    It looks like a different guy. Mercado libre and youtube took down the offending stuff in under an hour. I am pretty surprised. Facebook is a little different. I think he took that stuff down as soon as I commented.

    Sure enough getting questions about old parts…. again. I just can’t imagine downloading someone elses stuff, re-uploading it and expecting not to get caught.

    n/m getting caught. I can’t believe someone would rip off the customer like that. $200 for the pdfs and stl files. And add on top that you didn’t even generate them! That price for just information is crazy, and it’s not even their information to sell! Add to that the fact that they aren’t going to support it after the fact… Bizarre.

    If it’s gets converted its about $10. If not. Fing crazy that people would pay.

    Maybe I should do a listing on ebay and mercado. $10 and it the first line of the description just link the site… Free advertising.

    That’s not a bad idea. I wonder what happens if you have an item that never sells (or if it does, always gets returned).

    I think I might start selling PDFs of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrage

    I had a friend selling vintage bottles of dom perignon on ebay.  There is a loop hole to be able to sell collectors bottles of booze more than a certain number of years old. The trick was they sold them for a premium of the price they were buying them from costco, so they kept no inventory.  Ebay has some seriously creative people probably making a less than a dollar per transaction, but making tons of transactions. The good prices for ebay don’t start until 10k+ transactions a month if I remember right.

    I just found a comment from him a year ago on a video of mine.

    “Very good, friend, One question, could you send me the model 3D (in inventor or solidworks format) of your work?, I wanna check the “area of cut” with a tubes of 1500mm of long. Have nice day and thank you for sharing :)” “Thank you friend, but I wish edit the 3dprint-CNC machine for use bearing 625zz 🙂 (more inexpensive)”

    The whole time this little scammer was trying to sell it as his own. I am much less inclined to give out any CAD now…

    It piss me off that this is still up for sale, so I added a comment on the ad. Apparently he is removing it now, but we’ll see…

    Thank you!

    I have a verified account, meaning I have proven that is my machine and it is legally protected, so I logged in and reported the listing. I hope they respond quickly. I do believe this person has been taken down for my designs before.
