There seems to be some confusion regarding the licensing for the plugins.  Just to be clear

when you purchase a license it is permanent, it will work forever. 

There is no need to renew your license for continuous functionality.

Sample Model - view on any web device and in VR using iphone with cardboard viewer or headset
