    Hey guys,

    Part of my school project is getting a budget estimate for an application we need to hypothetically have developed for a company.

    The app needs to:
    - have a lead capture screen as soon as the application opens (simple first name, phone number and email is sufficient)
    - opens to a screen which shows a 3D model of the product
    - allows you to choose components of the product, swap them for other components which help create a better, more custom project.

    So if we use the example of a laptop for this application:
    - Shows 3D model of the laptop
    - Allows you to mix and match with all customisation options available
    - Allows you to swap in a bluray player, more RAM, a bigger solid state drive, etc

    And the final part is when it shows you your new, custom product, with all the specific output changes; so again in the example of the laptop
    - Screen will appear
    - Shows RAM
    - Shows CPU stats

    And all of this information should auto-save to the particular lead who entered their email address, name and phone number initially.

    I know this is quite a big project, and I don't want a cheap guess type figure - it's for a school project so doesn't need to be exact but reasonable.

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you need an estimate or looking for someone to do this for you? If so you should ask a Mod to move to Freelancer section.

    Should the application be a standalone and run on the desktop or want it to run on a browser?

    This can be done in Adobe Flash for under $1000.

    It should run on iPad.. and be an android/apple application.

    Now that you mention it; two quotes would be great
    - Adobe flash desktop application cost and timeframe
    - Phone application cost and timeframe

    And no, it is just an estimate for a school project, I do not need it developed.

    Adobe flash desktop application can be done for $1000 with 48 hrs timeframe.
    Apple/Android application be designed for as low as $400 assuming we use animated Gifs for 3d customization instead of rendering it using mobile graphics chipset. The Gifs will be rendered and exported in 3d though.

    I'd say around $1500-$2000 total.

    I was expecting upwards of $10,000+ for the app development?

    Like I said, this would need to be professional; so cost wouldn't be an issue.

    The budget is cheap because we're not integrating a 3d engine in the mobile app and that too won't cost anymore than $1000-$1500. My pricing is only for a single product so I don't know how many products you have on your mind. If you can pay $10k+, I'd be more than happy to receive it and polish up the app to look even more professional with animation effects and such. :D

    Hmm okay, thanks for that!

    Anyone else have some estimations for me?
