3Diligent Marketplace Premium

In my previous blog posts, I’ve shared with you about our 3Diligent Direct and our 3Diligent Marketplace Free, so today I want to share with you details on our 3Diligent Marketplace Premium.

3Diligent Marketplace Premium is the perfect solution for designers that don’t need the confidentiality or extra help of 3Diligent Direct, but need more options than those provided in the 3Diligent Marketplace Free.

3Diligent Marketplace Free – Who Should Use it and When?

We may have announced our new 3Diligent Direct service in September, but our 3Diligent Marketplace has been around since the beginning.

3D Marketplace allows designers to submit a request for quote (RFQ), which is then analyzed and released to a sub-set of our supply partners that are best matched to that project. The designer then receives bids from suppliers interested in the job – typically 3-5 bids – and can select whichever is most compelling.

But what’s the difference between our Marketplace Free and Marketplace Premium services? Aside from being free, there are a few other differences in what is available for designers to select when submitting an RFQ. In particular, Marketplace Free provides you access to desktop printing capability ideal for quick form prototypes.  That said, it doesn’t offer some of the heavier duty equipment and materials available via a Marketplace Premium subscription or our 3D Direct service.  Additionally, fields such as specs and tolerances, finish, and additional assurances aren’t available on Marketplace Free jobs.
