3D-PRO Membership


All new members get 1 full year to experience the benefits of 3D-PRO to determine its value for themselves. 

If after one year you are not convinced that 3D-PRO is worth paying a membership fee for, you are free to discontinue your membership and pay absolutely nothing.

Literally every single person in our esteemed community who has been a member for over 1 year has decided that 3D-PRO provides value worth paying for.


Former members are welcome to re-join 3D-PRO at any time (no referral necessary) by visiting the make a payment page and choosing the option that best suits your needs.

What it costs after 1 year

Annual membership: $24 per year
Lifetime membership: $120 one-time payment

*Prices subject to change

Initiating a subscription will lock you in at a rate that will never increase — even if membership fees go up. Or you can avoid all future membership fees by making a single payment for a lifetime membership.


Yes. And you can also do so anonymously if you want to.

Whether you’re an individual who wants to perform an act of kindness or a company that wishes to accommodate employees, you are more than welcome to cover the cost of someone else’s annual or lifetime membership.

Simply send payment as outlined on this page and be sure to include a note or specify the details of the member(s) you are paying for.

What if someone else has already paid? 

Right now, people/companies who want to pay for other members (or employees) membership can ask me in advance if it has been paid or simply take a leap of faith.

But right now that window is slowly, but steadily closing as people are taking action to pay. So it is difficult to judge based on timing/randomness.

However, if someone pays for someone else’s membership and that membership was paid for within 60 days, I will *refund* the payment made by the person whose membership is being paid for and explain why.

Ie. “You are receiving a refund for your membership because [name/anonymous donor] has generously paid for it. No actions on your part are required.

However, you can now choose to pay this act of kindness forward in whatever way you wish. Including doing so in a fashion that has nothing to do with 3D-PRO. Maybe pay for someone’s coffee in line?

But if you wish to pay it forward to another member of our community, you may. Or you can pay for the membership of someone you wish to invite. Or you can allocate those funds to a future project or event associated with 3D-PRO that is designed to benefit our community. But you are under no obligation to do anything.
