We had come to Solomon to help us take a design of a kitchen appliance from a rough prototype to a finished consumer product. He provided fantastic 3D models of various components, assembly documentation in two languages, updated the design for manufacturing, and sourced suppliers for the 22 component-assembly!! Looking forward to working with him in the future! Thank you!May 19, 2020Product CAD Design, Prototyping, & Sourcing's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I generally work on a fixed cost basis instead of hourly as this is the most beneficial route for clients. This way, you only pay for results and deliverables as described in our project outline; ensuring that your budget is used appropriately. Pricing depends on the scope of work, chosen services, design complexity, and required deliverables among other factors. I offer free consultations to discuss your needs and can provide a custom quote for your review. I typically require a 25% retainer for most projects and offer discounts if multiple services are selected. If there are rapid prototyping costs or other fees related to the development of your idea, you will be notified of these prior to accruing expenses. As I offer quality work, fast turn-around, and cost-effective solutions, you will not be disappointed in choosing me for your product design & development needs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Each job usually begins with a Q & A session and a thorough discussion of the objectives so that I may clearly understand your needs. If available, this is also when I'd request you share any sketches, images, descriptions, technical drawings, or prototypes related to the task. I can provide/sign an NDA if you wish to have one complete. I will then create a project outline for your review covering the general process, milestones, deliverables, payments, and the estimated lead time. If all is agreeable and a retainer has been placed, I will begin work as scheduled. I only take on 1-3 jobs at a time depending on complexity so that I may give each client's project my full attention.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a background in engineering, training in 3D modeling software, hands-on experience with prototyping & manufacturing techniques, and am continuously working with international suppliers to further my consumer goods production knowledge.
