If anyone knows the answers for these, thanks!

I'm just wondering does the manufacture handle what segments to bisect and turn into small pieces or does the 3d modeler deal with that making it easier for the manufacturer to print it?

Also by the looks of it huge sums of money seems to be the only barrier of entry, so would that mean anyone can create a statue company as long as they have connection in Guangzhou China and have a ton of cash?

And I heard it's a must to have someone in China to monitor these makers or if you can't you use SGS and Bureau Veritas as from other peoples experience they get duped or receive a bag of bricks so I was wondering if that's true or not?

I heard that one typically sends an art concept before a 3d model, is this before or after the acquisition of the license?

Lol, you make it sound like that's a side business, when in reality that's the real money maker, and it's way more than statues. Everything from designer bags and jewelry, sportswear and sneakers, watches at every price point, there's a factory to counterfeit absolutely everything there, and it gets sold around the world...just not in the US, usually...
