    About MakerBot

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

    Founded in 2009, MakerBot was one of the first companies to make 3D printing accessible and affordable with our first 3D printer, the Cupcake CNC. In 2010, we became the first company to present a 3D printer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Now, 3D printing is its own category there with a myriad of 3D printing companies in attendance each year. After being acquired by Stratasys in 2013, we introduced the first Wi-Fi connected desktop 3D printer in 2014.

    Today, we are proud to both serve the largest install base of 3D printers worldwide and run the largest 3D design community in the world.

    Excellent job. Thank you

    Fantastic Steamer Station!

    I just replaced my Reliable 3000IS that I have had for 8 years. I wore it out as I am a professional seamstress and it was well used. I love my new one and look forward to many years of use from it. It is by far the best steam iron you can get. It never fails to get the job done. Thank you Machine Shark for the quick delivery.

    Great Instrument

    Great, Easy to setup, very easy to adjust. We needed a custom fold and the directions made is fast and simple. From out of box into production within 10 minutes.

    The one to watch!

    I am really interested in your product. Your machines look great. The directions your going, thinking outside the box with the entire machine is excellent. I hope to get my hands on one soon . I must keep educating myself before i purchase. This is not my field of expertise . Ive been a cnc programmer for 27 years and i want something different... i really like the combo machines that can print and machine.

    LOVE this ironing system

    Have not had this iron very long but have really enjoyed the amount of steam this produces. I have long used and found the Reliable brand a good one, and had no hesitation in purchasing this iron. It's smaller tank fits my space perfectly. My only wish is that the iron/hose were not permanent connected to the tank. Shipping was incredible and customer service from Machine Shark the best I've had in a long time.
