Dear 3D Printing Enthusiasts,
The issue of 3D creation copyright is a very serious matter. Concerning copyright and originality, the community forum will adhere to the relevant policies of Creality Cloud, providing protection for the creativity of all original authors.
Currently, the community forum only plans for model competitions (including dedicated contests for original models and contests with no restrictions on model copyrights) and does not provide services for trading models.

Why is a Proof of Creation Needed?
It is crucial to upload proof of originality for your 3D works to protect your rights as the creator. Without this proof, it may be challenging to defend your rights if someone else tries to claim your work. Additionally, it serves as persuasive evidence to safeguard your 3D designs from malicious reports.
What is a Proof of Creation?
A proof of creation is a document that demonstrates you are the creator of the 3D work and that it is an original creation. This could be a certificate from a recognized institution, a timestamped record of the work’s creation, or any other evidence clearly indicating that you are the original creator.
- A certificate from a recognized institution under your local laws serves as proof of creation for your artwork.
- A proof of creation for your artwork can be a recording of the process of your 3D creation.
- A proof of creation for your artwork can be a link or screenshot leading to any recognized and authoritative 3D platform where you have already sold or shared your 3D creation.
- A proof of creation for your artwork can be detailed design sketches and various supporting materials.
If your proof materials are screenshots or images, please upload high-resolution images that clearly display your 3D design graphics and parameters.
Avoid uploading sliced screenshots.
Specific instructions on who to send the relevant proofs to and where will be provided in each competition’s rules.
We require all participating users to submit proof of the originality of their 3D creations along with the upload of their 3D models. Please note that failure to provide proof of originality may disqualify your model from the final award selection process.
