How Much Does it Cost?
There are many variables to establishing costing with this type of
process. These variables are dependant upon complexity of the
subject matter, size details and final finishing.
In the end, I find it boils down to time and material like so many
items. The more complex the subject, the more time it will take to
manipulate in the design and machine phase. The less the quality of
the starting point or photo, the same applies if there is a lot of
clean up required.
For the machining, there is tooling, and complexity within the cut
for the best outcome that can dictate longer run times.
Through the design process, these variables are captured and a time estimate for cut time is produced along with the 3d image of what it will look like after machining is completed.
Using this value along with an estimate for any finishing/framing and materials required provide the final cost estimate and this is what the quote will be based upon. Examples of estimates of recent jobsare provided to give a rough idea of how much this could cost.
Complexity Variables to inlfuance time estimates:
Drafting/drawing and complexity (many templates exist)
Photo cleanup and adjustments
Size of finished product
If the requested job is beyond the limitations of our capabilities there is no cost obligation.
