Why require paid access for your Hub?
Have amazing 3D models people want to use?
If you have a collection of awesome 3D models you want to share, but not for free, you can now post those to your Pro hub and charge users an access fee before they can use them in their own projects. That way a user needs to pay you before they can use any of your 3D models in any of their work.
Get paid by Pro users who want to download your 3D models
Anyone with a Creator Pro license can download public 3D models. If you have a hub with a collection of Public 3D models, they can download them for free. Instead, now you can require those Pro users to pay a small fee before they download your 3D model collection!
Bring more attention to your hub by advertising your games!
Don't forget to let the entire Blocksmith community know about your most amazing creations! You may consider posting a preview of a game, or one 3D model out of a pack of them, to entice other people to explore your Pro hub for more content they need to pay to access. Corny commercials coming soon!*
Require a subscription to access all of the content on your hub
Whether you are full game developer, a 3D model maker, or a professional training designer, or all of the above, you can finally get paid for your creations in Blocksmith! So start planning which of your best projects you want to charge access for and get a Pro hub to be able to charge access for them.
