- Registration -
Your membership's subscription is based on your joining date or the day your membership has been approved/paid in full. Your membership will thus end at the last day of your registration period and not at the end of the specific calendar month.
Like each new registered member, you will first receive an email with a digital generated password from our membership platform after your initial registration. Once your application has been approved by management, or paid for in full, can you use your email address and digital generated password to login to your profile. Thereafter you will be able to change your password to a more familiar one of your personal choice.
As a Guest Member you gain access first to your Profile page only after your initial registration. On your Profile page you can update any of your personal details or preference settings in the meanwhile. You will only gain full access to all the other members-only pages once your application has been approved by our Management Team. If you sign-up as an active Basic, Advanced or Professional I-V Member you will gain immediate access to our members-only pages as soon as we have received your payment in full.
All our once-off and monthly subscription payments are processed online and automatically through PayPal payment system.

Each membership level we offer on the various tiers primarily determine your access level to our various 3D Packages as well as mainly the various 3D Formats we offer.

Other benefits include access to our Blog, Forum and Mobile App platforms with their own various levels of benefits.
Other than the paying aspect of your membership as paying member, your membership as a “Guest” is primarily a Trial Period of 100 days. During this period, you get unlimited access to our Basic 3D Package. As well as access to our Bi-Monthly Update 3D Packages as they become available during your Trial Period. First-hand introduction and access to these 3D Models give you a very good idea as to how we operate in terms of the membership platform, downloading process of the Packages with their respective passwords as well as how you can benefit in the future from your membership.

Once your membership as a Guest member has been approved by our Management Team, then you will have access to our various Packages. Once we have received your payment in full for our Basic, Advanced or Professional (Pro I-V) levels then you will have access to our various Packages. Each membership level also determines the specific Packages and their respective formats you will have access to. See our Membership Overview more information.
The 3D HUB do not sell or resell any 3D model on an individual basis within any of our 3D Packages. As a paying Club Member your monthly subcription fee is solely to gain access to our membership platform and its various services. It is only on our 3D Shop platform that we offer 3D Models for sale at their advertised prices.
Firstly we offer our Basic 3D Package to you as a Guest or as monthly paying member and you can access this immediately after the approval or full payment. Thereafter we offer you the Fundamental 3D Package which builds further on the 5 Categories and does not include any of the 3D items or elements which are already part of the Basic 3D Package.
Thereafter our Bi-monthly 3D Update Packages are launched - on average - each two weeks. Each Bi-monthly Update Package is available for one calendar month. Thereafter it moves to our Update’s Archive and is available for an additional two calendar months.
Lastly each Update Package merge with our 3D Vault – after three months of their initial launch date – for an indefinite period of time.
Each new Update Package include a selection of relevant models for the CAD Architectural, Exterior, Interior, Landscaping & M.E.P. industries. We always aim to get the latest, trendy and high-quality 3D Models, which we sourced from our various international suppliers and manufactures.
Each new model we sourced is firstly processed by cleaning it up/”bake” as well as – where possible – the relevant material layers are identified and “grouped”. Lastly each model is converted individually to each of the various x10 formats we offer and put together as a package for each Category and digital 3D format we offer.
- 3D Packages Downloading -
No. None of our members need a personal account registered with MediaFire to download any of our 3D format files. You can download the files directly from our account to your device anywhere at any time. Yet, if you already have an account with MediaFire then you can save the 3D format files to your own MediaFire account.
The best format to download is the one that is most compatible with your personal 3D CAD Software. Thus, it is recommended to look first which 3D format files your software can import.
Yes. There is no “once-off” download limit nor any daily download limit. You have unlimited access to our 3D files and can download all the various format files - based on your personal membership level - which will allow you to access them accordingly.
Yes. You can preview all our items in the raw .stl format via the GrabCAD 3D viewer application as well as download it directly thereafter in the .stl or .wrl 3D file format. However both the zipped and itemized files uploaded to our MediaFire account you cannot preview on MediaFire itself. Alternative applications and platforms for previewing our models are the 3D PDF Viewer / Online Viewer / Connector App.
The best way for you to share these files is to refer them to our site for them to register as A “Guest” themselves. Then they can download the files directly from our MediaFire account.
