Publish parts on open sharing websites like Thingiverse

Hi onshape team,
I am a private part designer/ Hobbyists with a free subscription and I am using onshape to sketch some models for my 3d Printer.
In the future I am thinking about publishing some of my models on open websites like Thingiverse.

I want to publish them for open use and don’t have the intend to make any money with them.

Is there anything I have consider about when uploading them, for example reference to onshape or any disclaimer?

Best regards,

Michael

    No, but a shout-out to Onshape would be most appreciated. Thingiverse usually takes STL files but you may also want to consider including the URL to your document in the description.
