THE STORY OF DREIGEIST
Founded with Passion, Grown through Expertise
When we began our journey with DREIGEIST in 2015, we had a clear vision: to be leaders in the field of 3D printing.
Our beginnings as a classic engineering service provider, specializing in design, engineering, and prototyping, laid the foundation for our development. From the outset, we knew that 3D printing was more than just an innovative technology – it was a key to unlocking new dimensions in product development.
Our expertise and commitment quickly earned us a name in the 3D printing sector. As the demand for integrated solutions grew, we responded by expanding into distribution in 2017, in addition to development. We carefully selected manufacturers and materials that we could support and vouch for in terms of quality. Our portfolio rapidly expanded, ranging from 3D printers to bottle rollers.
However, growth brought its challenges. Increasingly, we found ourselves solving manufacturers' problems rather than helping our customers fully utilize the technology's potential. We observed a concerning trend in the 3D printing industry: manufacturers claiming their solutions were the only true ones. This one-sided communication often led to unrealistic expectations among end users.
We realized that the true value of 3D printing doesn't lie in the exaggeration of individual product promises, but in a realistic assessment of what different printers and technologies can achieve. The fascination with 3D printing is entirely justified – it's a revolutionary technology offering incredible possibilities. But it's crucial for customers to understand which 3D printer, from which price category and technology, is best suited for their specific needs and applications.
Our mission became clearer than ever: we no longer wanted to be part of a system that obscured the potentials of 3D printing through unclear communication. We made a radical decision to fully dedicate ourselves to enlightenment and honest consulting. We ended all exclusive contracts and embarked on a new path of independence and transparency.
Today, what we're really proud of is our role as independent consultants. We guide our clients through the intricate world of additive manufacturing, making sure the technology fits their specific needs. Years in the field have not only given us a vast network of contacts but also valuable partnerships. As independent consultants and development partners in the 3D printing industry, we're all about delivering the greatest value to our clients. Our commitment is to showcase the true potential of additive manufacturing in a clear and honest way, backed by well-informed decisions and deep technical expertise.
