We see many requests come into Shapeways via email and forums for people needing help realizing their ideas with 3D printing. Sometimes they have a sketch, sometimes they have a photograph, sometimes they have a 3D model they have started but can’t get to the 3D printing stage. Shapeways Designers for Hire are 3D modelers who have the skills to help others get their ideas in their hands with Shapeways 3D printing.

Hi all, Just wanted to share my recommendation for Vijay Paul of DotSan ltd. On two occasions Vijay has helped me out with complex and precise CAD work, and both times he has delivered excellent results quickly. He’s a pleasure to work with – one of those people I’m extremely happy to have in my address book. So – if you have CAD work, especially challenging jobs (even if you think it’s not possible!) you might want to get in touch with Vijay through www.dotsan.com – there’s a good chance he’ll be able to help you.

Dotsan did an amazing job for me producing the CAD drawings for our unusual buses in Nottingham England during the 1970s. He was patient, understanding and very helpful. I told him what I wanted and he did exactly that. What he did for me was amazing and the result is better than I expected. Daryl Hemsell
In addressing my needs as a client, very closely and at every stage of the development and design process, Dotsan successfully captured the essence of my 2D character work. It was a pleasure working with Dotsan, they are consumate professionals, and I look forward to working with them again on future collaborations! Culprit Art

Pricing Structure: No two projects are the same and a fixed price based on complexity is quoted once designer and client are happy with requirements.
