Find 3d distance between 2 sets of points

Hi,

I'd like to find the 3d distance between all points in two point feature classes. One is 12 000 building points, the other 22 000 point locations of a construction machine (along a line), constructing many km of tunnel. My aim is to be able to select the building points within x meters when the construction machine is at a specific location. How can I do this without running Near 3d several thousand times?

 

I am using arcgis 10.3 with basic license. I am not very familiar with scripting.
