With a Subscription you get Design Connected 3d models at the best price (2.75 EUR per model with Annual Business subscription plan). Yes, this is up to 10 times less than the standard on-demand purchase price.
Furthermore, with a Subscription you get convenient instant downloads as you don’t need to place an order every time you purchase new models. By the way, our Prepay purchasing option also gives you that benefit.
The Annual Subscription aslo gives you additional benefits:
- Partner discount (5, 10, 15, 20 or 25%), which will be applied to your on-demand orders during the Subscription period. This discount is also available on CG Connected!
- Ability to choose whether to use your Signature quota on www.designconnected.com or www.cgconnected.com!
- Rollover of the unused download.
The big difference comes from commitment period - signing for Annual means that you are obliged to pay 12 consecutive monthly fees. Skipping a payment isn’t allowed.
The Monthly Subscription requires payment for the upcoming month. You can skip months and start again, if you want.
Since, the Annual Subscribers are making a bigger commitment, they receive additional benefits:
- With Annual Subscription you will have unused quota rollover. The maximum number of rollover is equal to the quotas for three months. For example, with the Business plan you can transfer up to 108 downloads and use 36 of them for Signature collection or CG Connected!
- You receive additional partner discount for on-demand purchases on www.designconnected.com and www.cgconnected.com. The percentage depends on the specific plan.
- The price per month is a little bit lower than the Monthly Subscriptions. For the highest plan, Business, the difference is 10 EUR.
Depending on the subscription plan you choose you’ll be able to download 3, 6, 9, 18 or 36 models of your choice per month (monthly download quota). Or these are 36, 72, 108, 216 or 432 3d models per year!
Your monthly downloads contain a specific number of 3d models from our Essentials and Signature collections*. For example with a Professional subscription you’ll have а maximum of 18 downloads per month, maximum 6 of which can be used for the Signature collection. If you want, you can use all your downloads for models of the Essentials collection!
