Last updated: October 2014
The following are terms and conditions of a legal agreement between you and In Numero LLC DBA Fabnami, its affiliates and partners (collectively, “Fabnami”, “we”, “us” or “our”). These Terms and Conditions govern your use of the services we offer (“Fabnami Services” or “Services”) and the use of fabnami.com (the “Fabnami Website” or “Website”).
By using the Website and Services, you acknowledge to have read, understood and agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, you should not use the Website and Services.
The Fabnami Services are provided through the Website. Fabnami is an e-commerce solution used by companies that provide 3D-printing services to offer their services and collect orders online. Fabnami does not 3D-print or manufacture objects but develops, markets and manages the Website and the Services. The Website and the Services are configured according to the specifications provided by our clients, also called manufacturing partners, who use the Website and Services to collect and manager online orders. Fabnami is not involved in the actual manufacturing, processing and shipping of the manufactured objects.
The Services enables you to upload a 3D file to our Website, view it in 3D, have it tested for manufacturability and finally have it 3D-printed (also 'manufactured') by one of our manufacturing partners. Our manufacturing partners are commercially and legally independent companies that provide rapid manufacturing services at a charge. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage or cost incurred in relations to any activity between you and our partners and affiliates.
Unless stated differently during the checkout process, all costs will be billed and collected by the manufacturing partner you selected. The name and address on the manufacturing partner you are issuing the order to are visible when you first load the Website.
If your model is not manufacturable or has features that may lead to unsatisfactory results of the manufacture process, our manufacturing partner may contact you following their own terms and conditions that are available on the website of the manufacturing partner, which we invite you to review. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage or cost incurred in relations to the support of our manufacturing partners, or lack thereof.
Fabnami checks 3D models for manufacturability and possibly repairsthem automatically. Models that do not qualify for 3D print need to be inspected by an expert 3D designer, who might - but not necessarily will - be able to turn your model into one that can be manufactured. If expert services are available at the manufacturing partner you choose, you will be able to purchase them, also in combination with the 3D prints of your model. By purchasing expert services you will reduce, but not completely remove, the risks related to the potential non- or limited-manufacturability of your model and the limits of the 3D printing technology, which might lead to unsatisfactory results of the 3D-print process.
It must be noticed that Fabnami checks the manufacturability of your models and - if it is possible - automatically repairs them on a best-effort basis. A model that successfully passes Fabnami's check for manufacturability, either before or after having been automatically repaired, might still be non-manufacturable. Our manufacturing partners usually run routine checks on all models and will advise you, but we shall not be held responsible for any loss, damage or costs incurred by having a 3D model manufactured.
Fabnami acts and an intermediary between you and our manufacturing partners. After the manufacture orders have been issued, all communication, including billing, invoicing and payments related to manufacturing and additional services will occur directly between you and our partner. The name, address and contact information of our partner are visible in the Website and will appear in the order confirmation email you will receive after completing the purchase.
You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to use the Website and Services. If you are under 18, you may use the Fabnami Website and Services only with involvement of a parent or guardian. You must provide current, accurate identification, contact, and other information that may be required as part of the registration process and/or continued use of the Website and Services. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Service password and account, and are responsible for all activities that occur there under. We will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to maintain the security of your account and password. We reserve the right to refuse service to or terminate service of anyone at any time without notice for any reason.
1) Placing an order
To order a print of a model you designed or that you found on the Web, you start with uploading the model to our Website. Then you can select the quantity of the 3D-printed objects you order and the materials you want the model to be made of as well as finishes and additional services. Each manufacturing partner might provide a different offer, prices, service levels and quality. As the next step, we ask you to provide us with information we need for the delivery of the model. Eventually, your orders will be sent to the manufacturing partner that you choose, who will get in touch with you according to their own term and conditions, which we invite you to review.
2) Unacceptable orders, cancellation of orders by us
There may be technical or other reasons why Fabnami or the manufacturing partner may not accept or cancel your order during the entire ordering process, even after the acceptance of your order. Such reasons can be for example, but not limited to, the infeasibility of the model, the features of your model, the destination of the delivery you indicated in your order etc. In case we cancel your order our partner will contact you according to their own term and conditions, which we invite you to review.
The prices displayed in Fabnami are based on the pricing scheme of the manufacturing partner you choose and are valid only for the moment that they are displayed. Fabnami reserves the right to change its prices without prior notice. Such changes however will have no effect on orders completed before the posting of a new price. We do our best to prevent errors in the pricing. However, should an error occur, we and our partners are not bound by our offer and may cancel the order.
4) Payment and price
Fabnami does not collect payments nor sends invoices on behalf of its manufacturing partners. Fabnami simply provides a modern and usable e-commerce interface to check and price 3D models, select print materials and services and send orders. The Fabnami manufacturing partner you choose is responsible for collecting payments as well as for the quality of the manufacturing and services it offers.
After sending your order to the manufacturing partner you choose, we will send you an order confirmation to the email address with which you signed-in, which is also associated to your Fabnami order. The order confirmation will be effective as of the date on which the order confirmation is sent to you. If our manufacturing partner cannot accept your order, they will contact you according to their own term and conditions, which we invite you to review. You should verify the details in the confirmation email. If there are errors you should contact the manufacturing partner as soon as possible.
Your order will be delivered to your shipping address or will be available for pick-up depending on the options provided by the manufacturing partner you choose. You might incur in additional shipping charges. In case of doubt, get in touch with the manufacturing partner. In every case the delivery details are unclear, we invite you to contact our manufacturing partner. We are not liable for any damage or cost caused by delay in shipping or delivery. Title and risk of loss is transferred to the manufacturing partner you choose.
7) Cancellation of your order, return of models
Due to the personalized feature of our Services (i.e. the 3D print object is manufactured by our partners based on your specifications), you can not cancel your order after issuing the order. Orders that contain non-refundable items may still cancelable, depending on the term and conditions of the manufacturing partner, which we invite you to review.
Fabnami is not involved in the manufacturing process and does no warrant that the model manufactured by its manufacturing partners will meet the features of the indicated 3D model. Fabnami does not give any warranty about the models and does not guarantee that the model will be fit for any particular purpose.
