Oh well, what may be relevant.... I got into 3D modelling in 1987, when I translated the english manual of a 3D (CAD) software into german. Shortly after that I was asked to model standard parts for a library of standard parts for a mechanical engineering company. From 1990 to 1994 I worked with a 3D geodata system, doing 3D maps. In about 2005 I started designing quadrocopter frames in 3D, with parts designed to be milled in a CNC mill (you can stil find them on the internet - bogoframe frames). Then I started to make scale models of parts for model vehicles, which I offer on Shapeways if people ask for them. Do I make any Money from all this? "Any" is a wide range. I guess it pays the occasional beer, or ice cream.
