CUSTOM 3D Models & 3D Prints
For custom orders,
VIL gives priority and discounts to businesses and repeat customers.
VIL has a strong 6+ year history of providing 3D modeling/3D printing support to businesses, cosplayers, artists, and individuals from many diverse backgrounds. Thinking of making your own custom pendant? Need a unique cosplay accessory you cannot find anywhere else? What about a custom prop for your next event/film? VIL is ready to help by creating an infinite number of completely custom products either for individual use or bulk order. 3D printing provides ample possibilities and VIL is ready to help build your ideas.
VIL will not be able to accept every custom order request.
VIL strongly believes in open communication and will provide specific details regarding each and every request we receive.
While VIL has been in business for 6+ years, VIL’s 3D artist has been creating 3D models for over 15 years (and is currently working as as a lead 3D Destruction Artist at Sony's Santa Monica Studios). With professional experience like this, VIL knows exactly how to create top quality custom models efficiently and successfully. Please keep in mind, creating custom models requires ample communication from both parties (VIL and customer). Please be ready to respond to emails throughout the creation process. Lack of communication results in a delayed turnaround time.
VIL charges a flat rate of $55 per hour; an outstanding price you will not find from another artist of this caliber. The more complex an idea, the more hours will be needed to complete. Simple ideas are the most cost efficient. VIL may provide either
1. the 3D model file (.OBJ, file type),
2. a 3D printed version to customers.
If VIL is interested in keeping the 3D model for use in our online store, we may offer a customer a significant discount on their order.
Once VIL receives a custom order request. We will respond with an estimate of both hours expected and costs. Please see our sample response below.
Buyer payments for the 3D modeling services are split into 2; half at start and half at finish (based on the estimated hours required). If additional hours are later founded to be needed, VIL will communicate the changes and await confirmation from buyer before proceeding. Purchasing the 3D model file and/or the 3D print will be paid for by the buyer after the 3D model is completed. Note the 3D printing process is to be done by a 3rd party, Shapeways (VIL's exclusive 3D printing partner).
ALL custom order payments are processed via PayPal only.
