Qingdao Unique 3d Solid Printing Scam to Avoid

Inside there is an Epson L101 inkjet printer. Qingdao provides the platforms and software.

Inside the 3D printer, there is an Epson L101 Inkjet printer. Qingdao modified the original printer and provided the platforms and software.

If you buy this 3D printer, then you are at your own risk. Be aware of the following mistakes I did.

I paid USD$3,146.00 for this 3D printer with Qingdao Unique,
but received a 3d solid printer that didn´t work.
Was it my fault that didn´t work from the beginning as the company claims?


So, my sales rep called Sera told me to calibrate the printer´s head and clean the injectors. I did it daily for 2 months, with test after test with NO better results.
Was it my fault that this 3d printer didn´t work?
I don´t think so. That´s why the 3D printer from Qingdao Unique is a Scam
and the costumer support received was zero.

Now, I am in a process of finding another 3D printer supplier who can sell a machine that really works and who can give me real support if it fail.

17 people with the same need of a 3D printer have contacted me so far, because of my complain to this company, and because of my interest to research and ideally find a good 3d printer as well. I believe the technology is still in development with no clear results.

Pens printed first day of receiving it. Resolution was poor but at least had colors. By 2nd day colors vanished regardless the calibration and cleaning of injectors.

Pens shown were printed the first day of receiving the printer. The resolution was poor but at least it printed some of the colors. However, by the second day all colors were vanished regardless the calibration and cleaning of injectors recommended by Qingdao.


So I agreed to let everybody know, as soon as I find and review and test a printer supplier who can sell a printer that works.

If you are interested to know about my research,
send your information in the comment below, and I will let you know as well.


I am reviewing 3 suppliers at the moment.
Still, I have not taken any decision.
You know, I have more experience now,
so I know the weak spots to test.

The current 3d printer that I have includes:

pens holder, mug holder, golf holder, flat platform holder and candle holder l included The advantage is that allows me to imprint custom logos in each merchandising item at the same cost of silkscreen for a fraction of the time in small orders.


Hope to have news soon.

    Hi – I just got mine [Feb 2014]….and have not been able to get a decent quality print at all. In fact the calibration is so bad – the image is unrecognizable. Do you have any method / advice for calibrating the print heads. I downloaded Epson L110 – latest print driver. But not sure I am doing calibration right? Any advice would be great help. Also – please keep me updated on your quest to find a decent product the will do this kind of work. Cheers Ian – Australia

    Hello, I want to know how things ends up? Did you give up the machine, or you still use it now. I bought the same kind of printer, it was indeed modified from Epson Injet printer. I didn’t know this until I saw some review on the internet. But so far it works, and it can make me some money so far.

    We are also on a quest for a 3d printer and we purchased one through Brotherjet, they are also in China. We purchased a UV1800 which cost us $6,000 US Dollars. I DO NOT recommend this company. When the machine arrived and we set it up I was able to print a picture on a piece of paper. The next day I tried to print a cell phone cover and it would not work. After a week on skype with China I was able to print 1 cell phone cover and when I tried again a couple of days later it would not work. So please help me warn people to stay away from Brotherjet they too are a rip off company. Please let us know if you find anything that works great for cell phone, metal signs, etc. We are sending samples to NUNN Products and he will print them and return them to us completed. He has been very helpful on the phone so we are hoping this is a good one!

    hola a mi me sucedio exactamente igual con esta maquina, la compre y nunca me funciono, no tiene nitidez en el marcado y la tinta se cae de los productos facilmente. Asi que tambien me gustaria saber si encuentras un proveedor o nos unimos todos los que hemos sidos estafados para ver si nos devuelven el dinero.

    octavio , ten cuidado con esta otra empresa worldbestrading.com/product-69.html, les compre una cama plana UV , resulto ser una impresora epson metida en una caja de fierro de porqueria, trabajo por un par de dias y se quemo la tarjeta,la tinta UV se comio el cabezal epson, y todos los plasticos el tipo la misma historia, nada de garantia y se perdio, no responde,alibaba lo tiene clasificado como certificado y golden pero de nada vale.
    lo que me parece que podria funcionar es la roland de cama plana, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYUPG8AG2Vs, abingraf creo la tiene, yo no puedo dame el lujo , esta fuera de mi presupuesto, pero te doy el dato puede que te sirva.

    por cierto esa sublimadora de lapices la compraste a los filipinos de paptrade, como te salio, donde compras el papel tranfer laser,los de mundo tranfer en stgo, tienen un papel similar.

    do you want to do a legal action with other people against unique?
    I’m from Italy, I had the SAME PROBLEM, and from 1 mounth I work on a dispute against them trough alibaba.
    but it seems that alibaba will do nothing, so I have contact more than 16 persons like us to a legal action.
    if you want to be with us, just contact me.

    Buenas tardes a mi también me estafaron, recién puedo ver tantos comentarios negativos hacia esa empresa, de verdad deberíamos DENUNCIARLOS Y QUE DEVUELVAN EL DINERO, Y LO MAS IMPORTANTE QUE NO SIGAN ESTAFANDO,quizás podríamos unirnos todos en una pagina y que nuestras voces sean escuchadas en CHINA!
