This question is about a physical product, where a part of the functionality is patented. I would like to recreate that product for educational purposes. I won't sell it.
I guess I'm fine with "just recreating it for personal use". If I take this one step further and create plans or some tutorial material to recreate the patented functionality, can I get into trouble?
I have read this question, which is about recreating and doing tutorial videos about something that is copyrighted and/or trademarked: Leagalities of recreating a website design but not using publically
Specific case: Found a furniture design with a elaborate folding mechanism. This mechanism is patented. I would like to build my own furniture with that mechanism. It looks baffling at first, but I'm sure that everyone with a little technical background can figure out the function of the mechanism just by looking at photos and videos on the designers homepage.
