Utilize Excess Capacity

3Diligent has deliberately structured its platform with recognition of the unique nature of rapid manufacturing, especially 3D Printing.  Submit bids with to-the-minute deadlines.  Benefit from the flexibility to offer more aggressive bids when you have idle or excess capacity.  Get more out of your assets before the next big thing comes along.

Additionally, 3Diligent provides insights from our involvement in trade shows, the ASTM F42 Committee, America Makes, and the American Society of Additive Manufacturing.

HOW IT WORKS

The Project Life Cycle for Service Providers

Receive RFQ

A customer submits a project.  3Diligent analyzes the RFQ against your capabilities and preferences.  If you are a gret match for the request, you are notified to bid on the job.

Engage Customers

Message customers through the 3Diligent platform to refine your understanding of the project.

Submit a Bid

Offer a price and any conditions for completing the job. Edit your bid based on customer feedback to secure the work.

Order Acceptance

If your bid is chosen, 3Diligent handles payment from the customer and awards you the work.

Pre-Production

Click to acknowledge receipt of the job and being preparations for production.

Production

Advance status of the job to “In Production” and manufacture the RFQ according to the agreed upon terms.

Ship

Ship the part to meet the stated delivery deadline.  We'll handle the shipping label for you.

Quality Assurance

Receive confirmation that you met the terms you stated and receive payment for your work.

Is There a Cost?

3Diligent does not charge its vendors a membership fee to join – it simply asks vendors to cover the cost of printing a test part as a step in the vendor vetting process. When you are awarded work via 3Diligent, we retain some of the customer deposit to cover the cost of enhancing our service and growing our community. Any applicable fees are presented at the time of your bid and automatically withdrawn from the order amount, making accounting simple.
