General terms and conditions for the free-of-charge usage of paramate and/or trCAD

1. Scope of this contract

These terms and conditions define a contract between trinckle 3D GmbH, postal address Neuendorfstr. 26, 16761 Hennigsdorf, Germany (denoted “trinckle”) and each user of the software paramate and/or trCAD (those users denoted “user”) that use the free-of-charge offerings under the free license which can be accessed via the domains and/or (denoted “online platform” or “online service”).

Using paramate and/or trCAD is bound to different licenses with different terms and conditions. This contract defines the conditions for using the paramate and/or trCAD software and platform free-of-charge with the free license. For the usage with other license types different terms apply that can be requested for by contacting trinckle.

trinckle reserves the right to change and adapt these terms at any time with future effect. trinckle will inform about these changes on the website and/or via email to registered users.

If the user objects trinckle may cancel this contract. If logging in before the end of the notice period the changes are deemed to be accepted as well.

2. Limitations of Usage

For using paramate and/or trCAD with the free license trinckle may apply certain technical restrictions that limit the usage. These limitations may be qualitative or quantitative.

3. Description of “trCAD” and “paramate”

trCAD is a CAD software for parametric 3D construction that can be used for automating 3D designing tasks. It comes with a scripting interface for programming. trCAD can be used directly on the online platform.

paramate is a software system that allows to automate 3D-construction and design tasks by generating configurators. For doing so, suitable CAD configurator files (e.g. trCAD files) are uploaded into the paramate platform for server-side processing. paramate provides an API-interface for controlling the processing of those files and generates an output that can be used for configurator applications, typically a web frontend of an online configurator.

4. Definition of a “Configurator”

For automating a 3D construction or design task with paramate not only the CAD configurator file is needed, which contains the actual construction specifications. In addition files for defining other aspects like 3D rendering or the web frontend are needed. The complete application generated from this set of data is denoted as one “configurator” or “configurator application”.

Although it is technically possible to build a configurator that again contains different configurator applications this is not intended or allowed in the scope of this contract. In this scope one configurator is defined as one application for one concretely outlined purpose, e.g. one configurator for the automated design of a specific product like a cup.

If the usage for a defined number of configurators is specified for a license then this concretely outlined type of configurator is meant. In case of doubt the usage is to be negotiated with trinckle beforehand.

5. Fees and License

For using the software under the free license no license fees or other payments have to be paid to trinckle.

Using the software and the connected online service under the free license is generally only allowed for private, non-commercial purposes. For the usage for other purposes different terms apply that can be requested for by contacting trinckle.

For using the online service the user needs certain technical system prerequisites and needs to have a suitable online access that allows the technical usage of the online service. Costs for these technical prerequisites ore not part of this contract. Using the online service requires suitable hard-and software that has to be provided by the user.
