I recently purchased a warehouse, studio apartment in Sydney. The apartment was quite basic, and had a lot of room for improvement, so I decided to renovate.
I hired a designer locally to do some rough sketches by hand. He gave me a rough set of plans. It was hard for me to visualise since the sketches were just in pencil and black and white. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a rennovation just to realise that I had a made a mistake. I decided that creating 3D model of the apartment was the best solution to make sure everything was correct. I asked my designer to find someone locally, but I was quoted more than $1000, and the model was just a basic one.
I had used Freelancer.com previously to build a website, and discovered that the site also supports a lot of other things, including creating 3D model. I posted a job to create an exact, photo-realistic computer generated rendering of the apartment. I included the simple sketches that my designer gave me. I was amazed that I received over fifty bids. Of course some of the bids weren’t that good, but there were ten really good Freelancers that bid. Their skill was much better than the local 3D designer, that would have charged me $1000. I decided to choose someone with a background in architecture since it would be easier to communicate my ideas to him.
The freelancer I chose was CruzDelSur, who lives in Argentina. I sent him the rough sketches and explained a few things regarding colours, furniture and light. He asked me some more questions as we went just to clarify things. He was extremely good at working off sketches, since he was experienced at working with clients over the other side of the world. The 3D model that he produced were fantastic, they were of the quality you see in movies. I actually made a few modification to the design after seeing his models. The other advantage of working with someone in another timezone, is that they are available after hours. I was able to communicate with him in the morning before I went to work and in the evening after I finished work. Normally I had to take time of during the day to speak to my designer.
Overall I was really happy with the quality of work and the cost was only $200.
