3D Designer with Experience in Modeling for Jewelry Casting – Upwork


I am interested in hiring a 3D designer with jewelry design experience to 3D model a thistle flower (scientific name for Googling: Eryngium Magnetar Questar).

This model will be 3D printed in a high-res SLA resin print, which will then be used to make a mold to cast in silver. It should be as detailed as possible to capture the features of the real flower, but must also be 3D printable. We are looking for a clear patterning of alternating rings of spiky leaves and small nodules/buds, as seen in the detail photos of the flower. Intended scale of the model  is noted in the attached file in inches.

I have a purchased 3D scan file of the flower which I have provided as a base reference of geometry. You do not have to use this in the modeling, but it is there for you to use if helpful.

I am seeking a candidate who:
1. Has experience in complex 3D modeling
2. Is familiar with jewelry tolerances, measurements, and processes as it relates to 3D models
3. Knows how to design for 3D printing. Knowledge of ZBrush, Autodesk Suite, Rhino, and Grasshopper is preferred

Timeline:
We are hoping to receive the model as soon as possible. Project is due to client on Feb 21, 2024. I would like to have design reviews early on to make sure we are aligned on the creative direction. Please let me know the expected work hours to completion and the total estimated cost.

I have attached:
a. The 3D files of the 3D scan as OBJ, ZTL, and FBX
b. Reference images from the client of the thistle that they’re emulating
c. Intended scale of the model and print

Reference dimensions from a real flower:
Blue thistle flower with a ring or two of leaves around the base and a cone-like center cluster with stem:
Length:
End of stem to top of flower 5 inches
Stem 3 inches
Flower 2 inches
Cone-like center 7/8 inch

Width:  
Widest circle of leaves 3 inches diameter (note this is curled up a bit so could go a bit wider if leaves are more straight)
Widest circle of petals 2 inches diameter
Width of cone-like cener 1/2 inch diameter

Hourly Range: $25.00
