With FlashForge Finder 3D printing has become much easier and more affordable than ever before. The 3D printer is supplied fully assembled and ready to use straight out of the box. It is a great choice for educational institutions (schools, societies, universities), for home and novice users.

All the heated elements are protected from contact during printing, making it a safe choice for both adults and kids. Moreover, the Flashforge Finder primarily prints with the non-toxic, ecological PLA.

Thanks to the intelligent calibration system, setting up the printer is quick and simple.

Print quality

The Flashforge Finder is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. Below are the models of two vases. While you can see the layers, they look sufficiently smooth and are fully functional.

The removable printing platform allows you to easily remove printed 3D models. The printer is relatively quiet, the noise levels are below 50 dB.

 

Materials

Flashforge Finder prints with PLA and other materials.

The Flashforge Finder cannot print ABS-type materials as it does not have a heated print bed. It prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.

Build volume

Build volume

The build area is 5.5 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches (140 x 140 x 140 mm). Larger models can be printed in parts and then be assembled using acetone (for ABS) or glue (for PLA). For example, see the following attempt to create the Iron Man replica:

The models were printed separately and then assembled together.


Printer controls

The printer is controlled via the intuitive 3.5” LCD touchscreen. It shows the real-time status of the build, so you can better understand the printing process.
