How do private projects work?
Simple. Just send us a project brief and we will provide you with a design quote from a pre-qualified designer for your project.
Who can see my project?
Private projects are entirely confidential. Only you and the freelance designer that you will be working with will see your project description, file attachments and submitted work.
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 service buyer for any paid designs.
Do you offer 3D printing & rapid prototyping services?
Yes. You can request that your 3D model is delivered by freelancers in a 3D printing friendly format. Once the design is ready, you can print your design in almost any material with 3D printing.
Why are private projects awesome?
Private projects increase the privacy of the work you're looking to complete and allow you to work with the best designer for your project.
How is a private project different from hourly services?
Private projects are short-term projects with a concrete budget. Hourly services are for ongoing work that generally have an open work scope.
Will designers sign a NDA?
We've got this covered. Our legally binding terms of service covers freelancer non-disclosure. Freelancers on Cad Crowd have agreed to and are bound by the terms of non-disclosure that are outlined in our terms of service.
