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.
