Creation of Starfinder miniatures for 3D printing (legal issue)


General Discussion


I plan to model Starfinder miniatures for 3D printing and sell them later. I had obviously thought about doing original designs based on the Starfinder races and aesthetics, but I don't know if this would violate Paizo's IP.
I had also wondered if it would be possible to arrange a sales license with them so that I could create miniatures with their designs, and Paizo would get a cut of my profits. But I don't know if it's achievable. What do you think?


In my opinion, it's unlikely they would partner with a small creator and would be unwilling to approve your use of their IP.

However, I would look into making your own proxys that wouldn't infringe their rights.

Under Contact us, there is an email specifically for liecencing. I know there were questions asked about stls when Starfinder/Pathfinder Infinate was announced, but not sure they were ever answered publicly.


I would love to know the answer as someone with a 3d printer who would love to purchase Starfinder STLs. If they could go through Infinite I as a consumer would enjoy that immensely.

@Ramdactus let me know if you do start selling them.

Starfinder Infinite would definitely be the way to go with this.


I see, it must be difficult to get something like that. Then the most viable thing will be to create original minis that are compatible with Starfinder, but do not violate the IP.

Thanks for the interest! If you want follow me on instagram and I'll let you know when I launch the Patreon page. https://www.instagram.com/spacemodminis/

I will probably start selling in November, so stay tuned ;)
