    Thank you. Will the following text in a license.txt file stating the following comply with the license?

    ---
    Files in this folder were originally obtained from http://www.openbuilds.com/ at http://openbuildspartstore.com/motor-mount-plate/ . They, and all modifications to them, retain their original license, unless a different license is noted in their file.

    Open Builds staff have stated

    " The motor mount plates are licensed under the creative commons CC-BY-SA

    Additionally, I have provided the legal code in plaintext in a file named "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license.txt" .

    Its a pretty straight forward license and very open to use :)
    Hope this helps
