What prevents a potential customer, to create a profile just to request files and get the job done for free?
I understand helping a fellow engineer, but if a customer or a client comes in here, requests the files and gets it for free, there goes the possibility of any of us making some money.
I think this is not real concern. Engineering is a process where customer and engineer work together to engineer a product. Request is meant for only asking some parts that someone have created. I have seen many requests from customers but haven't heard that some of those have actually done for free.
To be honest Nuno there is nothing stopping this as it is down to the engineer, designer to do the models as a request if they wish to....
I think there has been a few of these requests already, but they seem to have been shot down because of the amount of work. Hopefully we aren't loosing to much work this way.
