I'm assuming the subscription is less per month than the upgrades would be individually. $50/mo for five printers to get the new bed spider style upgrades every three months.

In the commercial realm, support contracts for products are very common. Sometimes these support contracts include upgrades to current rev. This is particularly true for software products.

But these support contracts can be quite expensive. I own a piece of relatively inexpensive commercial grade software. Yearly support is $3K. $3K would buy you a whole new M2 every year :D .

I just made a demonstration at a top-ranked local high school, and the first comment I got was, "Oh, wow, a MakerGear. That's, like, one of the best printers you can get!". I told him, "Clearly, you know your stuff." Smart kid. Anyway, it didn't seem like the MakerGear image was suffering too much.
