Yeah, this is an idea that cna't be released yet.
It's a BBQ Grill with no background. texture can be optional. No animation, no assembly instruction.
BBQ will have all it's parts, and rotate in 360 view.

Is it possible that you can show me 3 different samples with 3 different prices?

For example: (I just select these in random...no idea what's good examples to show the differences in price)

PS: Why don't you try giving it a shot yourself with Google's Free "Sketch Up" software. It's a very friendly 3d free package.  Even if you narrowed down the details of your design there, it  would decrease the cost for anyone drawing it later down the road.

Google's Free "Sketch Up" software is not an option right now.
thanks for the advice.
i agree with darrenmcwi. there is a very big difference between the number of required parts involved in making a garden 'webber' style BBQ and a industrial type model. you have not really made it clear if the finished product should be an avi or a projected flash animation.

if you can offer me more information i would be happy to offer you a price and turnaround time based on modeling and rendering

It will be a Industrial BBQ grill. It is a product prototype.

I am not sure what info is needed to get a quote.
But can you give me an idea of what it would cost/time, if the 3D model has:
1. 1-15 shapes/parts with 1 texture/skin.
2.  16-50 shapes/parts with 2-3 textures.
3. 50-75 shapes/parts with 3-4 textures.

It can be in any video formats (Avi, mov, flash...)
