Cullen, our CEO, talks to TCT at RAPID about how 3Diligent has created a network of industrial grade 3D printing service providers to solve the supply and demand challenges of the current market. By bringing together industrial service providers across North America, customers can take advantage of submitting a single RFQ’s to a network of vendors across the region and experience the fastest turnaround possible for that given part and process.
“We’re kind of an Uber meets Amazon for industrial grade 3D printing. Much like Uber has networked a whole bunch of drivers and Amazon has networked a bunch of retailers – we have networked industrial service providers with heavy-duty resin, plastic, and metal equipment. What that allows you to do as one of our 3Diligent customers is submit a single RFQ using an algorithm that analyzes the RFQ and routes it dynamically to those vendors who are capable of doing the job. You get real time bids and, as a result, faster turn arounds and fantastic prices for guaranteed quality work – as we back every part with our money-back guarantee.
Additionally, 3Diligent will help you identify who has the availability at any given moment to meet very fast turn arounds. Sometimes that will be a local provider, but sometimes that local provider may have a back log of weeks on a particular production run. [With 3Diligent], you won’t be held down by just what is in your neighborhood but rather be able to access some vendor across the country that can get something to you next day or two days out that you would have never come across otherwise.”
