Planning to make some formicariums. I will be posting them under this post with guides. 

 

Most of the formicarium will be made with acrylic and sand molds. This simplifies the process and time needed for formicarium.

So I was wondering if THA can't sue you for selling or anything becuase I have several designs of THA that I've made copies of that I'd like to sell but am scared of getting sued. UtahAnts told me if I'm not mistaken that if it's not sold on a website or you have a product line then it's legal but I want to check with one other person just to make sure. It's not that I don't trust UtahAnts but I want to make sure others first.

He does not have a patent and has been selling for over a year without getting one. "Publications, patents, public uses and sales must occur "more than one year prior to the date of application for patent in the United States" in order to bar a patent under pre-AIA 35 U.S.C. 102(b )."  https://www.uspto.go...mpep/s2133.html

You can always add a disclaimer that it is Self made fan art and is in no way for commercial/website/mass production sales. Just don't add the THA names in your posting of the product anywhere. That should solve everything. Just add a bit of a new design to it or a feature that is your own.

This looks great! is the new mold the one listed on your site as a Vector file for laser cutting? I'd like to get some cut and try for myself!
