I currently work for a commercial construction company doing doing cds. When I was hired I was asked to learn from scratch revit. Nobody else had experience with revit at the time and so, I was to be the first, then pass my knowledge on to others as we are transitioning from cad to revit. I previously had experience in cad (arch desktop) and didnt take me long to discover that Revit has too many advantages over desktop to list. Ive decided to offer my services (freelance work) to anybody really that would find a need, but specifically to interior designers. I suspect that many dont know of the ease of laying out space in revit, then creating accurate perspective views. While renderings and such are a valuable service to them as well, I found that something as simple as a hidden line perspective interior view can also provide a valuable service to them for the purpose of space planning. I have recieved such a job, but since Im just starting out with this, I do not know what a plausible charge would be for such service. Charge by Project (including number of views, and other features), or by the hour? I guess I wanted to know from some, how much they would charge for stuff like this. Obviously if they are quality renderings, prices would be much higher. If I could get some insite here or even some sudgestions, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

It would depend on what sort of service you are offering... You may have said it before but i found it a little confusing to read. Are you offering a service where you take there existing documentation and then realise in 3D? OR are you offering a service whereby you train those in the use of revit and assist in realising the model in 3D? Most likely an hourly rate seems to make more sense in both instances...

Sorry if it was confusing. I am freelancing basically to a interior design firm. I am not licensed or anything like that and am starting out, so I wouldnt expect as much as somebody that's been doing such for years. Yes, I would have existing documentation. I would take this and model the desired part of the building from which they want to extract perspective views. I would throw in basically a rough model of the furniture accurately drawn to size for space planning more than anything and final output would be a hidden line perspective view that they could artsy up. Detail level isnt too high. What is a typical hourly rate for stuff like this?

I am architect who does a lot of freelance work on the side, and typically I charge by the hour on projects like the ones that you are talking about. Typically I charged between, 50 to 65 dollars/hr, but it depends on the scope of the project(the more involved, the higher the upcharge) and the clients motives on what they want to use the model for(also plays a huge role). Hopefully this helps to shed some light on the matter.

It might also help to know where your from as being an international site, I'd imagine currency will vary. But AUS i'd say around $50/hour. Then as you become more proficient you could up the fee a bit. I do some contract work and charge about the same, but i'm friends with the people i'm charging so i give a relaxed rate... Smile

A "relaxed rate", he he, I like that. :-) The new term for "mates rates" perhaps. This forum has suggested to me that I should be charging a hell of a lot more - even if I am just starting out!
