We build a lot of cool things on The Ben Heck Show for element14, so if you’ve got an original idea you’d like us to try, check out that community and drop us a line there.
Custom Modding / Design Work
Besides what we build on the show, I am always open to new projects. from companies and individuals. Due to limited time, I typically go for larger projects such as promotional items for technology companies.
If you’d like to talk with me about getting something done, here are some cost breakdowns which will give you an idea of what goes into an average custom project.
- Project design / assembly rate: $125 US / hour.
- Machine time for 3D printing / milling / laser: $60 US / hour.
- Parts and materials are extra.
The typical procedure for a custom project is:
- Client submits project idea.
- I come up with an estimate / rough design.
- Client makes down payment of 50% of the labor + 100% parts and materials. (This can vary depending on your milestones)
- Project is built within desired timeframe,
- Client pays remaining %50 of labor + shipping, project is shipped.
- If overages occur I’ll inform you of them for approval.
All work is warranted against DOA. If problems arise in the future, contact me regarding repairs at a nominal cost. I am glad to sign any NDA your company might require and can submit W-9 forms upon request.
Please email me to discuss any ideas you might have. Thanks and I look forward to the new challenges!
