I have a CNC machining degree as well as extensive experience in product and art design. I have been operating a business that produces cosplay props and art for 5 years now. I also am part of a CNC machine sales company.
I work with the intention of completion of a given job within a week. If it is something that I don't believe can be completed within a week then details have to be negotiated. To start a quote, I need dimensions, reference, and some idea of what you want the end product to be such as material choice and detail level. I will then require half of the payment up front and upon completion I will load the model on to my store front for purchase with the remaining balance of the agreed upon amount as a surcharge on the print. Once one print has been purchased I will deduct the surcharge to $5 for any remaining purchases. If you want your model public as a potential investment we can agree upon a set surcharge amount additional to the aforementioned setup. If you have a project that requires discretion then I can simply add your print to my store but not make it public and I will send you a link that will allow you to purchase it with the same original deal. Standard I quote based on $15/hour and that will include modeling and setting up for print. After I finish the first draft I allow one request for modifications without additional charges. A contract and NDA are available if desired.
