Evan S.

3D Modeling

I had a small 3D model that I needed drafted and provided in a printable format. Dana called me within 24 hours, we consulted on the design and she began working on it right then and there. I had the final STL file in my inbox less than 2 hours later (with open communication back and forth throughout the drafting process). I'm very happy with the quality of the model and incredibly impressed with the expedited service.

Dana and David are amazing to work with. Having Living Process handle all the logistics details really saved me a lot of headaches and it also saved me money. They got the best quotes from contractors and installers. I love my new landscape, really beautiful.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We typically work in phases of $3,000 each phase. For any type of design, we consider that Phase 1. This includes onsite measurements, a 3D model, architectural plans, and renderings as well as different design options. For example, a small project like an ADU would be $3,000 for one week (6 days, 8 hours per day) of design work that is roughly $30 per hour for a team of two. Mixed-use would be a larger project and would still fall under phase 1 but that would be $6,000 for design and architectural drawings. Phase 2 is permitting and our rates are $3,000-$6000 for us to take the project along until permitted. There is a $1,500 deposit for our services upfront, but give our free quotes any time. We have special monthly promotions of 30% off for customers who put a deposit on their project the same day that we go to meet them on the first onsite visit. For clients who are long-distance, we allow for a 30% discount on first call deposit, for the first time we speak over the phone.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started doing 3d models at the age of 11, when my grandfather had seen my interest in drawing mazes and then purchased the Archicad software program, to learn how to make my mazes into 3D buildings. My parents as well are both interior designers and I had sewn customizations on draperies and hand-painted curtain rods with gold leaf.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with many different clients, from homeowners to large business owners, to real estate developers, to even someone's pig that needed a special custom door made!
