After multiple groups have had multiple meetings, we are happy to report that we are in the process of being Open again. Here’s a brief excerpt from the letter (I’ll post the whole letter tomorrow).
The UW is supportive of your efforts in founding and leading Open3DP, an open research community around 3D printing. Herein we confirm that:
• with respect to UW policies and practices, you have an ongoing right to administer
• UW faculty, staff, and students are free to contribute their work to this open research community under the Creative Commons License model you have chosen.
We also offer you guidance as the open research community grows, to manage related interactions of a more proprietary nature.
We thank you for your support of Open3DP!
