For those that are interested in 3D printing their own devices for themselves or others but who do not have access to a 3D printer and are interested in purchasing their own – we have created a small list of our e-NABLE Community’s favorite machines that are being used within the e-NABLE Community to create devices for those in need!

For more information on recommended 3D printers – please visit Matterhackers and let them know that you are interested in purchasing a machine to create e-NABLE Community designs on and they will help to answer your questions and guide you to the machine that will work best for your classroom, home workshop or business! They have a 24 hour customer service line to help you with all of your printing needs or questions!

When you purchase a 3D printer or filament through any of these links below – your purchase will also help support the website!

Consider purchasing and donating a 3D printer to a school or local library so that families and students can all benefit from this technology!




The Ultimaker 2+ Education Bundle is a great start for any school, makerspace, or individual that is interested in 3D printing. Check out all the awesome items that the bundle from includes on their website!

ROBO3D R1 e-NABLE Educational Bundle is a great printer for a school or library on a budget or for anyone interested in purchasing a 3D printer for their home to help create 3D printed e-NABLE devices for those in need! Please visit the e-NABLE Hub for more information!




SeeMeCNC Rostock MAX v3 KIT Educational Bundle gives your classroom the ultimate learning experience by building a 3D printer from the bottom up and helping students and makers understand the components of the printer better as well as 3D printing in general!






Ultimaker 2+ is one of the top recommended 3D printers in the 3D Hubs 2016 Best 3D Printer Guide and highly praised amongst our e-NABLE volunteers and designers! They provide quality machines that  “work right out of the box”, make beautiful prints and provides an online community with forums to help answer printer set-up, troubleshooting and printing questions.

“As to be expected based on years of positive reviews across the entire 3D printing industry, Ultimaker has done an exceptional job to ensure that the user experience has remained top-notch heading into 2016. Among other considerations, these include the ability to print from the moment the printer is removed from its box, intuitive software for intelligently preparing designs for printing, a radial scroll wheel for adjusting heat and speed while printing and a reliable heated print bed that rarely needs calibration.” – 3D Hubs

ultioriginalkitUltimaker Original

The Ultimaker Original+ is ideal for anyone wanting to build their own 3D printer. This kit takes about 20 hours to assemble – once you’re done assembling this Ultimaker kit you can enjoy the same reliability and quality as the assembled Ultimaker printers. Building a 3D printer kit is a great way to start because you learn how everything works with the printer.

The Original+ improves on the Original with an included heated bed, enhanced electronics, and a redesigned fan cap.



Our ROBO 3D printer inspired our students to deliver better-than expected results to challenging designs. With collaboration and support from ROBO 3D, we have found tremendous success pushing boundaries and exceeding expectations through the imagination and hard work of our students. Thank you!!!”  – Jason Fontaine Youth Program Coordinator •  NASA
