How does the screenshot & time-tracker work?
Our screenshot and time-tracker allows you to view the freelancer is work in real-time. This means you'll only pay for time worked (to the second!) and view the freelancer's monitor, mouse and keyboard activity level.
How much does it cost?
We only work with senior designers, drafters and engineers in mainly English countries (US, Canada, UK, Australia, etc.). This means better work, consistent standards and quick turnaround. Hourly rates range between $45-65/hr depending industry.
Will freelancers sign a NDA?
We've got this covered. Our legally binding terms of service ensure any posted work is under non-disclosure. If a freelancer joins Cad Crowd, non-disclosure applies and you can use your own NDA document if preferred.
Why are hourly services great?
You can purchase time blocks of 10 hours that never expire. Hourly services allow you to work with a freelancer on an ongoing basis and reduce inefficiencies caused by re-training different contractors.
Can I communicate directly with the freelancer?
Yes. Unlike contests and projects, you can communicate directly with the freelancer. This may include phone, email, Skype, TeamViewer, etc.
Do I own the designs & IP?
Yes. Our legally binding terms of service legally assign the ownership of intellectual property (IP) from the designer to the buyer any paid work.
Do you offer 3d printing services?
Yes. If you require 3D printing services for your models, please inform the freelancer. Once you have the 3D printer file, you can get an instant quote from 3D printing companies on our Maker6 service.
