The Flashforge Finder 3 Lite is an FFF/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.
The printer is equipped with a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, which makes printing consistent, fast, and precise. The Finder 3 Lite also offers automatic bed leveling so you can proceed to the actual printing process shortly after unboxing it.
The Flashforge Finder 3 Lite is compatible with PLA, an eco-friendly and easy-to-print material that comes in a form of 1.75 mm filament.
The printer’s extruder is equipped with a fan to reliably print with PLA. The fan cools models during printing, which reduces warping, stringing, and other related issues.
The Flashforge Finder 3 Lite is equipped with a detachable print bed and an enclosed print chamber without a top cover. Its print bed is unheated so it can reliably print only with PLA, while printing with ABS and other high-temperature plastics is not recommended.
