3D model required (paid)

Post by MRH91 »


Sorry if this post falls outside the rules of this forum, or if it's in the incorrect location. Please direct me to the correct place if so and I will post it there.

I've been approached to manufacture MDF panelling with a decorative pattern 3D carved into the surface (wave effects). I have VCarve Pro, therefore no knowledge of 3D modelling, so wondered if there was anyone on this forum who is competent and would like to quote me to get the model complete.

Please PM me if you're interested.

Many thanks

The texturing toolpath and texture clipart abilities of VCarvePro don't satisfy your needs?

Pleasing textures are very subjective, what looks good to one my be horrible to another.

If you don't want to do it yourself, it maybe faster to for you or your client browse and buy what you want on on E-bay or Etsy.

It certainly will be cheaper, than a 100% custom creation to your clients desires.

At least look at those for ideas to give someone an idea what you want created.

You probably don't need to make a 3D model. Michael Mezalick has posted a few time on this subject. See here for one such post.
