Customer Reviews

Don’t take our word for it, see what our customers say about us

Pete Sealey

New to 3D printing but an engineer, was hopeful Ultimaker 2 may help get a concept enclosure printed to show colleagues. Fortunately came across Dream 3D team who took time to look at emailed picture of idea & send a printed sample similar in dimensions to inspect. Bought printer on strength of this – helpful advice & support – very friendly team, excellent service, thoroughly recommend to others

What excellent service! I ordered my Ultimaker 2 on Tuesday, and it arrived Wednesday – and the delivery was scheduled inside an hour window, which was kept to. Machine’s first prints went without a hitch. Brilliant web site too!

We cannot praise Dream 3D enough for their service!
After needing a 3D printer for an important project in the office we purchased an Ultimaker 2 Extended and received it the next day! Having found out that the glass plate was missing, I contacted Dream 3D and they had it sorted within the hour and another plate was on its was to us. Everything from the live chat on their website to the purchasing was so hassle-free!

My experience with Dream 3D was very very good. I didn’t want to wait for the delivery so arranged to pick up a Ultimaker 2 machine same day as ordering. From ordering to collection was 2 hours. The machine all worked as it should and I’m a very happy bunny.

I purchased an Ultimaker 2 3D printer from Dream3D was was extremely impressed with the very fast and professional service I received. The whole purchasing process was very pleasant and I would have no hesitation in recommending Dream3D to anyone looking to purchase a 3D Printer of Scanner. Other online retailers could learn a lot from Dream3D!
