FlyingBear Tornado is a large-format 3D printer kit. Shipped flatpack, it comes well-packaged with all the parts clearly identified for a streamlined assembly process. Like other machines of the FlyingBear lineup, the device supports multiple configurations for higher printing versatility. Its modularized design lets you customize the machine according to your needs. For example, you might choose the dual extruder version with a touchscreen integrated, or you can go for the basic single extrusion model with LCD display.
Composed of firm yet lightweight aluminum profiles, the cube structure is easy to install and ensures sufficient stability. In addition, a redesigned dual-Z axis and an anti-backlash spring allow for smooth operation reducing vibrations while printing. The latest version of the Tornado printer features an end-of-the-filament detection system, a glass heatable bed, a double cooling fan, and a model cooling fan. It can work with a wide range of performance materials.
The printer has been used to print several models, including smartphone cases, keychains, toys, and other functional tools. Scroll down to find out more about the Tornado.
Having a 3D printer could be ideal for anyone who loves getting their hands dirty. Indeed, it allows creating custom objects and replacement parts in-house at any time. For example, one user repaired his own key by printing the broken part with his FlyingBear Tornado.

The Flyingbear Tornado is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. It is equipped with a reinforced belt structure, precision motor and quality hardware for quiet and smooth operation. It features an optimized heat dissipation system for enhanced printing quality.
It comes stock with a 0.2 mm nozzle. Its tiny diameter allows for quality prints with a high level of detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer. The aluminum gantry minimizes the risk of backlash.
Flyingbear Tornado prints with PLA, ABS, PETG, Wood, PVA, Flex and other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.
The printer comes with a heated print bed made of glass. Thus, it is capable of printing with ABS-type materials producing quality results, just like the below-pictured owl.
The Flyingbear Tornado prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials. Indeed, it is compatible with almost any filament available on the market.
The build area of 13.8 x 11.8 x 11.8 inches (350 x 300 x 300 mm) lets you print just about anything. For example, our production team has been able to produce this gear prototype in one go.
The printer is controlled via the built-in LCD interface.
3D models can be printed from a computer via an SD card or a USB cable.
The printer works with Cura and Repetier-Host software. The software is available for Windows and Mac OS X. Linux users can use a virtual machine or other software.
