Service Description

Upon accepting a design agreement, The first thing to be done is to completely understand the problem, the constraints, and the desired results from the 10,000 foot level. Pictures, illustrations, and a conversation with the project manager/upper management is useful at this point. Knowing this broad information will help me create a concept in my mind of how issues should be approached, and gives me a model to base my decisions on.

Once this is understood, it's time to get down to specifics. Any existing models, drawings, or sketches should be presented, and explained to facilitate a deeper grasp of the situation. If there are any proposed solutions/designs, now is the time to bring them up. If there are any interfacing parts, 3D models of them will be necessary (except in the simplest of cases). I can create them from 2D drawings, or sketches if necessary. At the end of this step, i should have enough information to select materials, and complete a preliminary design. Depending on the complexity, this could take anywhere from a day, to a week. Expect more than a week for complex designs, or if research needs to be done prior to design completion.

Once the preliminary model has been completed, it's time to present it to the clients. Using an online meeting service, I will present my model, explain the features, reveal the necessary design compromises, and ensure that the design is optimized to meet all requirements and constraints. If any changes are requested, I can...
