5 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a 3D Rendering Freelancer


If you’re looking to hire a freelancer for 3D rendering services like 3D interior or 3D exterior rendering, it’s important to ask the right questions upfront. As a blogger who often works with freelance 3D rendering artists for projects, I’ve put together this post to share the top 5 questions you should ask before bringing a freelancer on board, to ensure they’re the right fit for your project and meet your expectations.

1. What is your background and experience with 3D rendering?

The first thing you’ll want to know is what type of training and background the potential freelancer has in 3D rendering. Do they have a degree in 3D modelling, design, architecture or a related field? How many years have they been working in 3D rendering specifically? What software are they most familiar with? Ask for examples of their past 3D rendered interiors, exteriors, product visualizations or other 3D work. Review their portfolio to get a sense of their style, level of realism and overall quality. More experience means they’ll likely deliver higher quality renders.

2. What is your process for completing 3D rendering projects?

What is your process for completing 3D rendering projects?

Every 3D artist will have their own unique process and workflow for tackling a rendering project. Ask them to walk you through the typical stages of how they approach a new 3D interior rendering or exterior rendering job to make sure it aligns well with your needs and expectations. Will they use 3D modelling software like 3ds Max, Maya or Blender or work in a 3D rendering program like V-Ray, Keyshot or Lumion? Understand the steps so you can anticipate timelines and milestones.

3. How long does it take you to complete different types of 3D renderings?

To set reasonable expectations around delivery timelines, ask the freelancer how long it typically takes them to complete different types of 3D rendered scenes and assets. A simple 3D product rendering may only take 1-2 days, while a fully furnished 3D interior rendering of a house could take 1-2 weeks. If you need a super quick turnaround, you can inquire about rush delivery options. Get a sense of how their speed and capacity aligns with your project needs.

4. Do you have expertise in the type of 3D rendering I need for my project?

Do you have expertise in the type of 3D rendering I need for my project?

Not all 3D rendering artists will have experience creating every type of 3D scene. For example, someone who specializes in 3D architectural visualization may not be the right fit for rendering complex 3D products. Make sure to ask if they have specific expertise in the type of 3D rendering you need – whether it’s interiors of homes/offices, exteriors of buildings, landscaping, retail spaces, vehicles, jewellery and more. Relevant experience matters.

5. What do you charge for 3D rendering services?

Finally, ask the freelancer about their rate structure and fees for 3D rendering services so you can determine if they fit within your budget. Many freelancers charge per image, but fees can also be hourly, daily, weekly or per project. Ask if they offer discounted rates for bulk images. Be clear about your budget upfront so you find someone affordable. Also inquire about how many revision rounds are included.
