Step 1: Submit your requirements/design drawings

Please send us a list of your production requirements for new product, describe your product in as much detail as possible, and reference pictures (manuscripts, sketches, 3D drawings, reference finished products). Ailin’s 3D graphic design is a fee-based item.


Step 2: Confirm/modify the design

Ailin will carry out the preliminary design according to the list, submit the 3D design drawing, and communicate with you for confirmation. Once confirmed, it will not be changed later.
