The spectre of free 3D models

There has been an increasing trend towards hobbyists buying designs to 3D print on their own 3D printers at home, rather than do the difficult design work themselves. Brands are now trying to sell 3D designs rather than physical products. But the internet is full of free designs, and customers can't always tell the real things from the fakes. This has important implications for consumer safety, but also for the livelihoods of freelance designers. IDTechEx invited Martynas Klimas of CG Trader to explain the problems and implications.
