What Counts as a "Commercial Use"?
I found out about Onshape when I wanted to design a puzzle for a school project and my highschool did not offer a good Solidworks like CAD software which is almost imperative for designing twisty puzzles. I immediately signed up for an educational liscence as I could not afford the full version and I was using it for a school project. As I got further into designing puzzles I realized I could upload and sell my designs on website like I.Materialise and Shapeways and make some money along with my newfound hobby. I would purchase the full version of Onshape but I don't have enough money as I am just getting into college next year and selling puzzles probably wont provide enough money for me to be able to pay for it. I was wondering, since I don't plan on patenting many designs or producing them at a large scale, if it still counts as a "Commercial Use" of Onshape and if I am allowed to sell my puzzles this way.
