Airwolf 3D: A History of Innovation

When Erick Wolf built his first 3D printer in his Southern California garage, he had not planned on starting a 3D printing company. When he realized its immense potential, however, he was hooked. Thanks to Erick’s relentless push for innovation and his wife and business partner Eva’s keen business acumen, the two spent the next four years growing Airwolf 3D into the true leader in desktop 3D printing that it is today.

Here is the history of the desktop 3D printers that went to market with unprecedented and unrivaled combinations of features, like auto-leveling and high-temperature, multi-material dual printing. Built on an uncompromising foundation of quality, performance, and service, Airwolf 3D defines itself by its history of trailblazing innovations.
