I have been working together with a 3D artist for weeks to design a product that can be later produced by an injection mold.
Everything went fine and he submitted nearly finished design. I asked for one more revision and the seller snapped. First he wanted me to cancle the order, agree to an NDA and said he will sell the design. I tried de-escalating the situation and then he started talking completely differently.
He started saying that he will gift the design to me and that this is my design. I told him that I will protect the design and I will not let him sell it. Now he is saying that I should not worry and the design is mine. But he still requested order cancellation whixh I declined. He just straight up refuses to work on it any longer.
This is so weird, what should I do? I think he is trying to sell the design to other people and wants to cancel the order so I would not have any claim to the design that was made according to my instructions.
Has anyone else had such an experience?
