MakerBot believes there's an innovator in everyone. As a global leader in desktop 3D printing, we set the standard in 3D printing reliability and ease-of-use by providing effective solutions for every stage of the desktop 3D printing workflow. From the start, we have also redefined what's possible for makers of all walks by introducing many industry firsts. 

Consistently pushing the boundaries of excellence and quality is a MakerBot core tenant.
