here a really funny but also ridiculous experience I had on eBay Marketplace (Kleinanzeigen) this week with my MPCNC.
I bought a MPCNC in January from V1 Engineering based on “small” experiences - at that time - with 3D-printing. After receiving it, I have also realized a number of 3D-components with FreeCad and printed them for building “my” version (on ALU Frame 30x30) of the MPCNC.
When I saw the new PRIMO version of MPCNC I decided to print it myself for not using PLA but other materials (see here the description of my Primo version: My Primo in Multi-Colour, Multi-Material on a Alu-Frame 30x30 B-Type Nut 8 ).
Finalizing the printing session in September and building the PRIMO, this week I have put an announcement/offer on eBay Marketplace (Germany - Kleinanzeigen) to sell my Original-MPCNC parts but also giving all the additional parts I have created/printed. No place for a 2nd MPCNC
Today I got a message from eBay that they took off my announcement because a company in Germany complained about my announcement. The reason is that my announcement - presumably - impinged upon their rights!
I have requested eBay to get a statement regarding the infringement of rights (private person is selling a used product with additional parts that were produced by himself) but also the verfication of right to delete my announcement.
Currently I do not know the name of the company but there is only 1 company on eBay Germany that “officially” prints and sells the MPCNC.
Anyway, I think it is really ridiculous and somehow a quite wretched company that needs to operate in this way.
Seems that private selling of my MPCNC was creating huge competition.
PS: Ah, I am selling a MPCNC (not PRIMO) with a lot of parts if anyone is interested
