3Diligent Launches Equipment and Material Search Tool

Posted on Dec 18, 2019 by Cullen Hikene

‘Tis the season of giving, so we at 3Diligent are excited to share what is hopefully a very useful gift.

As you know, 3Diligent works with hundreds of manufacturers around the world, representing thousands of machines, hundreds of branded manufacturing processes, and dozens of manufacturing brands. This covers a wide breadth of machine processes and an even wider breadth of different materials. Some of these are more obscure, others are better known, but all of them contribute to the global ecosystem of manufacturing.

For this reason, we are sharing an open-source tool with the community for the searching of materials and machines in the digital manufacturing sphere! 

The Technology Finder

The Technology Finder captures many of the different hardware options for the processing of digital-manufacturing files. At the current moment, roughly 900 different branded technologies are captured in the database. Using our search bar, you can use your own search terms and phrases to identify the right solution. Additionally, there are some very useful filters to aid your search for the right technology; looking into the different listed technologies will give you a more detailed view.  

The Material Finder

With the Material Finder, we likewise capture the wide variety of materials in the market. Again, there are nearly 1,000 different materials captured in the database. With the power of the search bar, you can look for specific keywords of significance to you or leverage the filter functionality where appropriate. 

More to Come

This is the first of many exciting announcements we look forward to sharing with you over the next few months. So please keep your eyes peeled, join our mailing list if you haven’t already, and have a happy holiday season!
