    Hello,
    I work for a company that earns more than $100.000 per year and I'm wondering if I can use Unity Free Edition to create a showroom for a product (a 3D model of it will be displayed and interacted with.)

    The software won't be distributed and will only run on a set of machines for potential clients.

    I can't find a good answer to this, as the FAQ only explicitly explain for Commercial and Published Games.

    The FAQ doesn’t say anything about publishing games or otherwise. If your company makes more 100k (and less than 200k) you will need the Plus license to use Unity. Pro is over 200k.

    No.

    If your companies revenue is higher than the threshold, you cannot use Unity Personal in any fashion.

    Not that Unreal's license is different. They only charge royalties for published products. This does allow for free internal use of the tool.

    You must not have read the license agreement then because it's very blunt about it. I've bold formatted the relevant info from the license agreement.

    That is commercial. Your not making a showcase in your bedroom for your family, your doing it for clients in a commercial setting in a company that makes revenue that goes over the limit, therefore you pay for the license :)
