Answered: 3D Printing Parts Clarification;

I know there’s a post asking a question about 3D printing parts, but I was wondering if it is legal to 3D print a part from a STEP file that was directly downloaded from the VEX website.
Is that still illegal? Or would that not be, since it was taken directly from the website?

As answered earlier in this forum, 3D printed parts are not considered identical to any VEX EDR part, thus they are not legal for use in the VEX Robotics Competition except as non functional decorations. See the below thread for more details.
