Breaking down the price of 3D models

The cost of creating 3D models will typically depend on the complexity and quality of your model, the method used to create the model, and the agency or artist that you are working with. 

On average, a simple 3D model will cost from $40 to $200, while a more complex model costs from $200 to $1000, and a very complex model can cost up to a few thousand dollars.

InVRsion uses advanced photogrammetry and modeling techniques, and follow full set of guidelines that contains a strict methodology for the 3D asset creation workflow, but other partners can use other methods to create 3D models.

3D Model Complexity Characteristics Artist Difficulty
Simple Simple shape with simple texture and standard PBR material assigned. Junior 3D artist
Medium Detailed shape or simple organic shape with simple texture and somewhat complex PBR material assigned. Junior 3D artist
High Super-detailed shape or partly organic shape with highly complex texture and somewhat complex PBR material assigned. Advanced 3D artist
Very high Super-detailed shape or highly organic shape with highly complex texture and highly complex PBR material assigned. Senior 3D artist
3D Model Complexity Approximate Cost Hours Needed
Simple < $40 > 2
Medium < $180 > 15
High < $650 > 40
Very high < $650 > 50
