The total work cost is obtained by way of multiplying time expenditures by the price of one work day. The price is in full compliance with time expenditures and is not subject to actual value of the object. A 3D specialist only shall be able to give correct estimation of the said time. Of course, a chaotic geometry implying curtains, large bows or crumpled handkerchiefs might be fairly expensive. Flat interiors with an emphasis on natural textures can be expensive, too.
An elegant modern chair by an Italian designer (without drawings) might take more time than an old one all covered with engraving. Generally, prices are set regardless of the number of images rendered from a 3D model. It’s only a very heavy rendering (numerous sources of light and reflecting surfaces) that matters. Neither does it matter whether or not we use furniture already available in the database, or use custom-made units, since the said new furniture, engraved or sculptural elements are available in the database and can be used later on. Some very specific cases like these water drops on both sides of glass, or this back-lighting of wine bottles from beneath might increase the period of work, but this will not affect the price.
Some colour patterns’ alternatives or elementary amendments are normal and shall not affect the price, as long as 3D is particularly intended to reveal any errors and miscalculations.
These quotations take into account 3D work only. The quotations for architectural work do not differ much from conventional work.
