UNEXPECTED! For the first time someone is asking me for AutoCAD file of the palace I designed for purpose of showcasing my 3D modelling skills!! Being the first time, I did not know how to handle such customer.

[14:28] Visitor: I NEED CAD FILEE
[14:28] Teoalida has joined the conversation
[14:28] Teoalida: of?
[14:28] Visitor is now known as me
[14:29] me: PLACE
[14:29] me: SORRY
[14:29] me: PALACE
[14:29] Teoalida: 3D palace?
[14:29] Teoalida: How much you can pay for it?
[14:29] me: YES
[14:30] Teoalida: I never though that someone will want to buy this
[14:31] me has left the conversation
After THIS case, I added on Palace page a message “Interested in 3D model? Contact me and make a price offer“, similar messages I added on other CAD pages.
I am very confused about at what price I can sell a 3D model, first I would like to know what audience I have who would need, who would buy that?
However, the above person may be a STUDENT without money looking to download random AutoCAD files for study purposes… nothing else. Probably quit because I asked him to PAY.

[22:48] Teoalida: Hello
[22:49] Visitor: I CANT FIND DOWNLOAD FILES
[22:49] Teoalida: True
[22:49] Visitor: SORRY ?
[22:49] Teoalida: If I let the .DWG files for free download, then how I can do the business?
[22:50] Teoalida: What would be the motivation to design buildings?
[22:50] Visitor: YEP
[22:50] Visitor: PLAN + TOWER
[22:50] Teoalida: Actually… what are you looking for?
[22:51] Teoalida: Are you real estate developer? builder?
[22:51] Teoalida: or do you want to purchase DWG files? for free you can download PNG images
[22:51] Visitor: NO I AM ARCHITECT
[22:51] Visitor: FOR SAMPLE
[22:52] Teoalida: you as architect would you give away .DWG files for free?
[22:52] Visitor: YEP
[22:53] Teoalida: hmm… interesting, so how do you live? any source of money?
[22:53] Teoalida: Let me know if we can collaborate for any project
[22:54] Visitor: SO …
[22:56] Visitor has left the conversation
He is architect! I love collaborating with architects, but he said “SO…” then quit?
Was this a potential customer lost, or was a prevented attempt of theft of DWG files?

[15:17] Teoalida: Do you have any idea how many hours I spent drawing these cars?
[15:18] Visitor: yes

[15:18] Teoalida: Time is money, AutoCAD software also cost money, plus I have an experience that not many people have
[15:18] Teoalida: and I am quite surprised… to have someone interested in 3D model of cars. I am very curious what you can do with them
[15:19] Teoalida: What is the usage?
[15:19] Teoalida: Most people who contact me, they contact asking to work for them… design new drawings
[15:20] Teoalida: Actually I CAN sell my past work but tell me how do you use it?
[15:23] Teoalida: Have you tried to click About Me page?
[15:43] Teoalida: Are you still there?
[16:05] Visitor has left the conversation
Possible student, looking to download any CAD files, not interested design service for any specific thing. He said “thanks” and never replied again probably because realized that I am NOT offering CAD files for free.
