  3. Project name and PO if required

  4. Scope of Work - Detailed description of the project in question

  7. Materials list - Showing what goes where. Links to Mfg. materials, or provide swatches/photos

How long does it take? - This depends on the “scope of work”, (i.e. rendering or animation) the amount of updates or revisions involved. Will be receiving a CAD file, or do we need to build the project in question. However, something like a small office, a product rendering or workstation should take around a day or two. Send us the details, and we will give you a quote.

How much will it cost? - This also depends on the “scope of work”, and the amount of updates or revisions involved. We charge by the hour, so something like a small office or small product can run anywhere from 40.00 and up. Send us the details, and we will give you a quote.

What equipment do you use? - We run 3, eight core mac pro computers (24 cores) to do the modeling and rendering work.

What software do you use? - We use Autodesk Maya for modeling and animation, and Chaos Vray for rendering. We also use Adobe CS5 for post editing.
