Hello Shapr3D Team,
I know that this topic has been discussed before but I would just like add a suggestion.
Would you consider a business model where all users had the Pro software but paid for the file output?
You could maintain a subscription model by selling multiple outputs in bulk at a reduced rate. Or infinite output for your top tier professional users. How would $5 - $10 per output sound, depending on the file type.
I personally think you would garner more users and in the long run more revenue.
I understand that you would probably not be able to do this as it stands but if all files were saved to the cloud and links sent by email it might work.
As a bonus you might offer the modeller the option to make the model public and add another source of revenue, the artist could be redeemed in the form of credits, maintaining your ecosystem.
I would be delighted to hear your thoughts.
