Quality You Can Trust​

The team at Walters and Wolf needed custom nodes to build the dramatic façade of Seattle’s second tallest building. Unfortunately, none of their manufacturing partners had the capability.  That’s when they came to ProdEX.  ProdEX was able to deliver from prototype to production, with a combination of prototype metal 3D Printing, investment casting, and eventually production metal 3D Printing.  In the end, the results speak for themselves.

Why Risk Paying 273% More Than You Have to?

Digital manufacturing is the leading edge of manufacturing.  Some might call it the Wild West of manufacturing.  And in the Wild West, price is a relative thing.  That’s not to suggest that any manufacturer is trying to rip its customers off.  But it is to say that different manufacturers have different solutions, overhead costs, and pricing strategies.  With so many providers out there, how can you be confident you’re using the solution that will give you competitiveness in a global market?  After all, a study by 3Diligent showed that the spread from low to high bid for the same RFQ averaged 273%!  3Diligent ProdEX has set out to solve this problem, by providing you the tools and service options to access cost effective solutions.

We worked with 3Diligent on a urethane casting project. The breadth of materials and services they offered, including flame retardant and color options, made them a great partner on this program. We were very satisfied with the experience.

The evolution from prototyping to production is different for every project, calling for different machines, materials, and investments every step of the way.  No provider can offer everything you could need under a single roof, especially in the rapidly evolving space of digital manufacturing—and when companies try, it makes even the most basic jobs exorbitantly expensive.

That’s where 3Diligent has been designed to be different.  Using the power of cloud computing, 3Diligent leverages a global network of qualified manufacturers to complete custom manufacturing projects on demand.
