Not sure why 3D Speed gets all the love, but I regret not trying 3D One sooner!
Outstanding correction for a one step, and gives terrific gloss and shine.Using with orange LC pads, I've polished 3 vehicles( white Ford Truck and silver Lexus and black Lexus w/really trashed clear coat) with it and customers were quite satisfied with the results.
THIS PRODUCT WORKS WELL IN THE HOT SUN. If your mobile like i am, my 1st concern with any polish, wax or compound is what kind og longevity am i going to get in the field with no shade at 98+ degree temperatures.
really good working time and easy wipe off. There usually is residue left but I applied Meguairs Xpress Spray wax and had no problems.
I am already planning to get a quart next time around..
Move over 3D Speed, 3D One deserves some love now!!!

3D One is fast becoming a trusted ally. I'm starting to look at it more as a tool that I rely on for me to do my job efficiently, than just a bottle of polish, or some over hyped fluid in a fancy packaged bottle.

Key attributes:

1. The closest to no dust as physically possible.
2. Economical. Very little product is needed as you work through the process. More when compounding, way, way less when polishing.
3. Excellent cut and finish on most paints. It can struggle a little on super hard clears, and finishing can be tricky on softer paints. It will still work though.
4. Smells great!
5. Product can be "stretched out" and continue working as long as there is enough on the pad. Very interesting as most polishes can't do this. 3D Speed also possesses this trait.
6. Product doesn't make me feel dizzy or nauseous.

Paired with Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber, and Yellow Uro-Tech pads, 3D One can cover a lot of bases. I will be picking up some Buff and Shine Dark Blue Uro-Tech for one steps, Uro-Wool for even heavier cutting, and Uro-Tech white to see if I can coax even more gloss out of it.

Definitely worth trying. Detailed Image carries the 8oz bottle of you don't want to invest in larger quantities.

Update - 8/24/20

Since my initial review I've been hired by a local shop that does a lot of very nice, and sometimes well beaten vehicles. This shop provides protection film, window tinting, paint corrections and coatings.

Since I started working with that shop, 3D ONE has been my go-to for almost every vehicle I've worked on. While we have curtains separating the wash / polishing areas from the cleaner areas of the shop, it is critical that there is no dust getting in the cracks and crevices, because that presents problems with protection film applications. 3D ONE removes this potential issue for us. As a matter of fact, the entire line of 3D abrasives are relatively dust free. Dusting was my biggest pet peeve with the products I have used in the past.

I also know better how to position 3D ONE. It is sort of like a medium cut polish with a LOT of reach into the heavy cutting and fine polishing realms. For my personal operating purposes, I have ACA500 available for heavy cutting, and ACA520 for ultra fine polishing (which it excels at!!). In between them is 3D ONE. At the shop I use the AAT twins in conjunction with 3D ONE.

With ONE, I still use Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber and Yellow Uro-Tech most times, but I recently added the coarse blue Uro-Tech foam pad, and I can't believe how well it finishes out for being so coarse. I also added the Uro-Wool, but I feel the Uro-Fiber cuts just as well, and has a better ride..

Another point I want to touch on is how economical this polish is. The average user might have a 16oz bottle for years. The emulsion can stretch out so far, and still be effective. On a 5" pad I start with four small dabs, and reload with one or two. This might be able to cover one entire half of a sedan hood. And I can work the product until the defects are gone, and move on. There was definitely a learning curve to using this polish, because a little bit honestly goes a very long way. Use a little too much, and you'll be wiping off forever. Do not "prime" these pads like the forum gurus promote. If you do that you will be wasting product, and making a huge mess - HUGE! Even microfiber - four small dots to start.

As far as user experience, I feel ONE has more tactile feedback as to what it's doing. It isn't slipping and sliding all over the place, but it's not "sticky" either. You can feel it working.

I won't go so far to say this is the only polish you'll ever need, especially as a professional, but it just might be.

This product is just amazing if your have clients that aren't read to pay for a two step. This has been my go to for over a year now and it hasn't let me down once. It's a winner easy to apply and easy to wipe down.

I received 3 samples from the manufacture one of 3D one in a bottle of 3D speed and a bottle of 3D Poly. I looked at the manufacture's YouTube videos and it was real turn down but and I decided since I had it I would try the product anyways I was very impressed with the 3D speed there are some areas on my vehicle where I needed the 3D one, on my Instagram page I will be posting detailed reviews on these products a long with a little video that explains ceramic coating layering if it's feasible if it works if it's worth it or not.

This product is really great... I found that in order to make the wipe off easier you do need to use less then you normally would otherwise this can be a pain to get off. Overall though excellent bang for the buck and you can use pretty much any pad with it. You can start off with an aggressive pad then finish it out with a lesser aggression pad without even wiping anything which is really cool... It doesn't dry on and become hard to remove like other products do. For one steps or even like a 1.5/2 step this is great....HOWEVER it will not work like that on every car and every situation. If you have something that is really banged up then you will want to use a dedicated compound like 3D Ultra Cut then finish with their polish or one.... One cuts good....but not so good that it can handle really heavy defects, it just isn't designed for that. I would recommend this product to do the entire range of what you would need on softer paints such as Japanese cars or American cars especially GM black... Now if you are dealing with a German car then you definitely want to step up to 3D ultra cut if you are looking to handle a car that is banged up pretty bad. You will need that extra cutting power. If you are having problems finishing out on ONE....especially on black then you are gonna want to slow your speed down if you are on rotary to 600-800 RPM... slow your arm speed down also. Let the product work, light pressure. If you you still aren't getting it, then spritz a LITTLE water on there... do the same thing. It should happen. Overall I would say that for most people ONE really is all you are gonna need on most cars in most situations and for most customers if you do this as a pro, unless someone is willing to pay you to sit there and go out it with a full multi stage correction, then this will really make a lot of people happy! No product is gonna do everything everytime but this is darn close in my opinion. Hope that helps anyone out there.

Great one step! No dusting, cuts very well, more than Sonax perfect finish and finishes out similar to perfect finish. Great price on a great product.

I have not compared it to other one-steps polishes such as a Sonax cut & finish or Adam's one step polish, but 3D One did an excellent job on Acura hood I recently did, and it finished very well. I did not need to do a second pass with a polish pad or use a different finish polish, went straight to sealant and then wax. I used with a Uro Fiber 50/50 pad, a Lake Country Force Orange pad, and a Lake Country Force White pad. The Uro Fiber pad was the preferred choice for the Acura hood, the LC Force Orange didn't have enough cutting power, but finished well, same with the LC Force White pad. I still have more testing to do with other polishes, but I think 3D one will be my go-to one-step polish.

Very impressed with this. Used it with a Porter Cable 7424XP and an orange lake country force pad. It removed light scratches and marring. It did not remove heavy scratches but improved them. I was expecting that result though. It finishes out amazing. However, the residue is a little difficult to remove and i found my self wiping the panel down extra because my towels were pushing the oils around. I had to go back over the car with a final towel and some IPA to get all the oils off. All in all this is a great one step. I feel it compares well with Menzerna 2500 and Optimum Hyper Spray Polish.

Very nice product. This is first time using a one step. I used this with a orange hex logic pad. Done a really nice job on a 2017 rav4, that's never been polished. Wipes off really easy. Would buy again

Tried this on soft Mazda paint and it was a dream to use. A combination of orange and white LC pads depending on defects and oxidation. I did not need a second step on this soft paint as it finished remarkably well. No dusting and wipe off was easy. I was working in 55-65 degree temps indoors for reference. It reminded me of working with Sonax Perfect Finish but less expensive. I look forward to trying it on other vehicles.

I love this stuff. This stuff right here is easy to use and it does the job right. Some of the people on here are saying that it's really messy to use and it slings everywhere. If it's slinging everywhere is because you have your rotary on a high-speed or too much polish on the pad. Put the polish on the pad, put the pad on the car then start at a slow speed then work your way up and you will have no problems. This stuff is a must-have if you haven't got it yet what are you waiting for. Yes I would definitely buy the stuff again.

The formulation seems to have a huge amount of lubricant. Using 4 pea sized drops on a 5 1/2 orange LC foam pad with a Flex PE 14-2 rotary on speed 2, I experienced a huge amount of sling. I appreciate it allows for longer work times, but the time saved using one compound/polish and just changing pads is lost cleaning up product sling.
Don't get wrong, it does a commendable job of correcting and polishing. It's just seems to be messier than some other products. Maybe 3D will bring back Adapt, which I loved using.

It performed very well on soft Mazda paint took care of 2000 grit sanding marks (orange pad 21mm DA) and finished impressively well after light pressure slower speed. I feel it's a great value and will have its places that it will shine. Almost no dusting and removal was very easy on a cool panel. Haven't tried on a warm/hot or sunny panel. I was very impressed and plan on keeping it in the arsenal from now on.

This is by far one of the best bang for the buck polishes! It's so versatile! It can handle light to heavy correction just by changing pads!

Gotta say.. I'm not to impressed with 3D one so far. I've used several different compounds and polishes so its not user error. It cuts good, but doesn't wipe off as easy as I hoped. I'm a long time HD Speed fan, and was absolutely a fan boy over HD Adapt, so I had really high hopes for the similarly marketed product 3D One. However, this just fell short. I did a 50/50 comparing griot's fast correction cream and this product side by side on hammered paint. Same amount of passes and pressure on a orange CCS Pad. Fast Correction cream cut down a lot better, and left the finish LSP ready. 3D one on the other hand not only didn't cut as well, but also left the panel hazy. This was done on a Tesla Model 3 Paint which is generally a medium hardness. Granted I've only tried this on one vehicle so far so it may have just not played well with this particular paint. I'll try it on my next few vehicles and hopefully get better results, but as of now.. now as great as I hoped!
