1. EnquiryIf you are interested in an order already made, click on the photo to like it. That way, the modeler will know how many people are interested in that model.
2. CrowdfundingIn this situation, the model is already raising funds to start production! If you are interested, just buy a quota. When the model is finished, you will receive an email with the images of the project for your approval.*.
3. ModelingThis status shows that the crowdfunding has already happened, that the necessary amount has been collected and that the modeler is already working. It is still possible to buy a quota with a good price.**.
4. FinishedHere, we gather the models that have passed through the crowdfunding and that all participants have already received the files. In this case, you can buy the model and download it right away.***.
If you can't find the model you want, just go to the "New project" menu, then "Request a model" to start a crowdfunding. There, you include photo, model name, description and category. Soon a modeler will appear to begin the project. As soon as your order is for modeling, you become the crowdfunding organizer. The more people like your order, the more likely a modeler will be interested in the job. Promote your order!
* In the menu: My account> My purchases, you will find the model so you can validate the quality.
** Models in progress have 1/3 more than the cost of a crowdfunding quota.
*** Finished models have twice the cost of a crowdfunding model.
In the "Projects looking for modeler" screen, you see only the models that are still waiting for modeling. Now, just find the model you would like to make and click on the "Be the modeler" button. Put the final price of the project, the number of quotas you want and we do the division. Always remember to see the number of likes in an order. This indicates a possible number of participants in the project. You can still use the search filters to view the most liked models, that is, with the most interest from the public, first.
If you want to register a ready-made model or start a new project that has not yet been requested on the site, you can even organize a crowdfunding! Just go to the "New project" menu, then "Start fundraising campaign", include all informations to register it.
It is possible to win beyond what was collected in the crowdfunding! During modeling, the model is still available to new stakeholders. This means that the more popular your offer, the more money you will earn! In addition, when the model is finalized, you will receive 35% more for each sale!
After the modeler sends the images / renders of the model, the crowdfunding participants must evaluate the quality of the work. In the menu "My account"> "My purchases", it is possible to follow the entire process of the model. Click on the "Details" button to see the model's photos. The file validation processes (.stl and .obj) first pass through the crowdfunding organizer (if any), that is, who initiated the crowdfunding with the model order. At that point, the organizer can suggest adjustments first, so the modeler must make corrections and send it back to the organizer before passing the files on to the participants. Only when the adjustments have been approved by the organizer, the files are sent to the participants.
In case any problem occurs during this process, CO3D can be activated to intermediate.
To manage your orders, crowdfunding and models, access the "My account" menu. There, you will find all the information, status, deadlines and details of each item you participate in.
