With its ability to process computer aided design (CAD) data and build an object from the ground up, 3D Printing previously offered an innovative way to design prototypes and models, largely for artistic purposes. Now that production grade metals and plastics have arrived, design constraints have been lifted on end-use products, allowing for incredible innovation. Whether NASA reducing the sub-assemblies in its rocket fuel injector from 163 to 2, or doctors printing patient-specific titanium prosthetics from MRI data, the developments have already been astounding.
The main issue holding back 3D Printing adoption is cost. Production grade 3D printing is still prohibitively expensive for most business customers. Production plastic printers can cost six figures and metal printers are commonly over $1M. The rate of obsolescence is high, with new technologies seemingly appearing every week. Moreover, each individual printer has its own set of material, size, and resolution limitations – it’s rare that a company can invest in just one printer and meet all their needs. 3D Printing service providers have arisen to address customer need, but pricing from one vendor to the next is highly variable, and not always a direct function of quality.
3Diligent addresses these issues by creating a Conduit for Professional and Production Grade Rapid Manufacturing – effectively a 3D Printing and CNC Machining services marketplace specifically for businesses. 3Diligent connects customers with high quality manufacturers and vendors with new business opportunities. Central to the 3Diligent concept is “blind bidding” – providing certain customer and vendor information critical to decision making but veiling both names until a deal is agreed upon. This allows for customers to maintain a degree of anonymity with their procurement activities while also allowing vendors the freedom to price more aggressively for jobs. Thus, a truly competitive market for production quality 3D printed and CNC machined parts is created.
