We are constantly researching and testing the latest technologies in the creative media field in an effort to expand our service offerings.  We encourage all potential clients to come to us with any idea they may have, no matter how big or outrageous it may seem.

What sets Industrial3D apart from others?

Experience:  The people that make up our design and creative team possess decades of experience as CAD designers and animators in industrial related fields.  The years of experience translate to a competent staff that is well-versed in a variety of technical subject matter areas.

Quality:  We apply the same attention to detail and standards of quality against every project that comes through our doors, no matter how big or small the project and/or client may be.  We are not concerned about the number of projects we can take on at once and how quickly we can crank them out.  Our focus has and will always remain on the customer and their complete satisfaction.  That is why we maintain a small creative team comprised of animators and designers that are the best in the industry.

Project Management:  Every client has access to our account management, project management, and creative teams at all times throughout the duration of your project.  Since we are relatively small in size, all of our team members work closely with one another on a daily basis to ensure everything runs like a well-oiled machine.  Our goal is to provide our clients with a level of comfort to where they can come to us at any time with anything that may be on their mind.  By the end of the project, you should see us as a member of your team instead of an outside design firm.

What benefits does 3D creative media bring to the table over traditional methods?

Animations and technical graphics are a form of 3D creative media that allow for accurate and detailed depiction of products and processes.  Through visualization, people and companies now have the ability to demonstrate products and services while eliminating ambiguity.  We tend to be visual learners by nature.  Every day we are surrounded by dimensional elements that we can interact with in order to gain understanding.  Why wouldn’t you use the same methods when dealing with your company’s products and/or services?

Where can I apply 3D creative media?

The applications are endless.  Our clients come to us from a variety of fields and disciplines, from sales and marketing to training, engineering, and research and development.  Our goal is to provide you with the perfect combination of 3D creative media elements that will effectively achieve your desired goals.  Come to us with your problems and we will provide you with a solution that meets your requirements and budget.

How does the design process work at Industrial3D?

As soon as you contact Industrial3D, we will put you in contact with our sales/account management team.  They will listen to your needs and requirements in order to provide you with a detailed and customized quote for your project.

Once we receive approval, a project kickoff meeting is held to discuss the plan moving forward.  The discussion can be held in person or through web conferencing technologies.  You are encouraged to include any of your team members that will be involved with the project.  Those involved from our end include the account manager, project manager, and designer(s) assigned to your project.  Clearly defining the details, requirements, and responsibilities from the beginning ensures that the project will run smoothly from start to finish.

You will be in constant communication with our team throughout the entire creative and development process.  As we send over mockups and previews, you will have the opportunity to provide feedback and input so that we can provide you with a finished product that is to your expectations.  Projects are not completed until the client has given approval and signed off on the final deliverable.

How much does a 3D creative media project cost?

Each project is given a custom quote that is based on many different factors.  Some of the factors that determine price include availability of models/drawings, level of detail, project scale and scope, duration, and required technologies.  Check out our Contact page for the different ways you can get in touch with us.

How long does a 3D creative media project take to complete?

Projects vary in scale, scope of work, and production schedule at that time.  A standard three minute animation ranges from four to six weeks from project start to completion, while a technical graphic can range from one to two weeks.  Each custom proposal includes a projected timeline for your project.

I have drawings/models of the products I want included in my project. What files can you work with?

Great!  Providing us with these files to start off with enables us to minimize cost and accelerate the project.  Our creative team works with a variety of software suites and can accept a majority of file types.  Ideally, we prefer to receive files in STEP, OBJ, or CAD format.  Let us know what you have and we will guide you from there.

I am ready to get started. What do I do?
