We geometrically engineer 3D N=2 field theories from M-theory on non-compact CY4. We present a detailed dictionary between the geometry and topology of non-compact CY4 and the physics of 3D N=2 theory in different regimes. We analyze many examples with emphasis on C4 orbifolds and toric CY4s. A new brane box method is developed which is found to be dual to the CY4 compactification, generalizing the brane web methods in the study of 5D SCFTs.
