I was really happy with the overall experience. John communicates well and is very accommodating with his client's requests. He responds to e-mails in 10 minutes and sends regular updates about the printing job. Excellent quality. Excellent service. Keep it up!

John at Hydra was so great to work with! He was extremely quick with responding to questions and helped me make sure my model was the best it could be for 3D printing. I was very impressed with the service and the model I received was beautiful (white PLA, 200 microns). I also was able to pick it up a day earlier than expected, which was a great surprise. Great experience, I would happily use this service again!
