A global marketplace for everything manufacturing!

Low-cost access to a $1T global market | Competing bids mean lower prices | Bringing freelancing to manufacturing

What is

3DHoudini?

3DHoudini is the first marketplace to apply a freelancing platform model to the manufacturing industry. Freelancing sites have been extremely successful in empowering the "little guys," a.k.a. freelancers, by giving them access to a global market. In the manufacturing industry, prohibitive costs prevent a large and capable segment of nontraditional suppliers from accessing the market.

These nontraditional suppliers are businesses with downtime on equipment, and those we call the "freelancers of manufacturing." These freelancers are typically small shops or sole proprietors who operate sophisticated manufacturing equipment made affordable by advances in technology. 3DHoudini gives traditional and nontraditional manufacturers and service providers low-cost market access, while giving buyers on-demand solutions for sourcing parts and services at the lowest prices.

3DHoudini took features that the freelancing geniuses of Fiverr and Upwork spent a decade developing, then modified them to create an online marketplace with functionality that is uniquely suited for real-world manufacturing! As a result, the 3DHoudini platform is packed with powerful features that no one else in the online manufacturing industry has.

I'm a freelancer

Are you capable of making parts or providing services that could compete on the global market, but you don't have the resources to reach it?

A freelancer is essentially "the little guy:" a sole proprietor or small operation that has the equipment and skills and is capable of providing quality parts or services, such as: CNC machining, 3D printing, engineering, design, 3D scanning, fiberglass, tooling and mold making. Like Upwork or Fiverr, 3DHoudini can help you sell your parts or services to the global market.

I'm a business with downtime on equipment

Does your business have expensive equipment or staff that is under-utilized?

Asset sharing is not a new concept. What we do is similar to what Uber or Airbnb are doing, except instead of cars or houses, we allow people or companies to share manufacturing equipment and their expertise in operating it.

  • 3DHoudini provides a hassle-free way for companies looking to defray the cost of expensive capital equipment by sharing it with paying customers
  • Sell time on your equipment and stay focused on your primary business
  • Don't let expensive equipment set idle when it could be making you money
