How does the purchase process work?

As a user of 3D Printing Magazine app, you can either subscribe to our magazine or you can buy single issues. If you subscribe (Auto-Renewal) you will get a discounted access to the current published issue and have discounted access to any future issues while you remain a subscriber.

If you purchase a single issue, you will be able to view only that issue immediately after your successful purchase.

How do Special Issues Work?

Special Issues are different in the sense that they are not part of the magazine subscription. They are independent ‘stand-alone’ special issues such as a ‘Collection Edition’, ‘Anniversary Issue’ or other occasion. Subscriptions do not include Special issues. Special issues are additional magazines that are made available as a separate purchase. They will have a red “Special” sash and will appear below the top section.

My App is crashing. How can I fix this?
There are two things to check with your 3D Printing Magazine app before notifying us of a potential bug.

Do you have iPad 2 or better? … Current app magazines make the most of digital graphics, and this is where the iPad 1 fails most. This is due to its limited RAM (265mb), and inability to update iOS beyond version 5xx. Currently we do all we can to keep graphics streamlined, but there will soon come a day when nothing more can be done except to upgrade the device to a newer model.

Is it just a faulty auto-install? … 3D Printing Magazine App has been extensively battle tested, so most problems (more than half) happen from a poor auto-install. Interrupting the download stream can occasionally cause this for example, but there can be any number of reasons.
• Be sure to CONNECT TO WIFI when downloading the 3D Printing Magazine app.
• KEEP THE APP OPEN and do not go to other apps while the download is active.

Why was my new mag not delivered automatically?

We love App store technology, but it is not perfect. Push Notifications are awesome but sometimes a user’s iPad can drop push notification connection. Weird but it happens. What you can do is to turn off WIFI, turn on Airplane mode, then reconnect to WIFI. Something else you can try is to connect to another WIFI network for a while and then switch back to yours. Restarting your iPad can also sometimes help.
