Attempting to add Blender to my arsenal of architectural CAD tools and have had a hard time finding tut’s for this specific interest. The occasional castle has helped but I need a bit more detail to move forward. My dream tutorial would be one for the <<Walkthrough demo>> at http://www.blender3d.com/cms/Stand-alones.162.0.html. I’ve already contacted Mr. Rickert[spelling?], the author. Unfortunately, with all his various duties and projects, he doesn’t have the time to re-create that one. I’ve shown that particular stand-alone to any/all of my contract employers. One got very quiet; very intense; and said “Is there a class you can take to learn that? I’ll pay for it.”
I’m on the fence as to fair compensation for this sort of thing. I’d like to avoid the following scenarios which often screw competition entrants:
- Not having a ‘real’ amount set aside for winning entries.
- Not having an established set of guidelines as to what makes a given entry ‘worth’ the bounty.
There are others but they all boil down to the contest creator receiving lots of other peoples blood, sweat, and tears without compensating them. [I’ve had one bad experience along these lines hence the concern.] One of the basic principles of life is “pay people for their efforts.’” – from Jeff Herring of Atlanta, GA: one of my first & best employers. [Gosh I hope he appreciates this shameless brown-nosing and remembers me at Xmas! ]
Any suggestions along these lines are most appreciated.
Thanks & best,

PS. If I end up on the mysterious no-fly list for the above comment, I will be extremely put out…
PPS. Damn, that sounds like I’m just begging for trouble…
