Low cost plug and play 3D printer. Easy to use, nicely finished 3D printer
The FlashForge Finder Wifi (Gen 2) heralds the arrival of low cost plug and play 3D printers. This machine can be unpacked and be ready to print within minutes! For its price, the Finder demonstrates impressive print quality and quiet enough operation to blend into any home or office environment.
The multi-language LCD interface, assisted calibration routine and supplied slicer software gives this machine a very quick learning curve and is an easy introduction to 3D printing for curious adults and young inventors alike. The 140x140x140mm print volume is large enough for the majority of freely downloadable online models.
While only FlashForge's branded filament spools will fit inside the Finder's integrated filament compartment, the compartment isn't required, and any brand of filament can be used externally (external spoolholders available here or here). The max nozzle temperature of lack of heater bed limits the filament option primarily to PLA and PLA compounds (woodfill, etc..). PETG can also be used at slightly slower speeds along with extra bed adhesive such as our 3D LAC spray.
This machine is sure to see a lot of mileage no matter the age or skill of the operator.

A SD Card in your printer will allow you to store prints and print them directly from SD. This is more reliable than a USB connection and allows you to power down your computer.
A heated bed is important to reduce Warping and have a better adhesion of the 3D print to the print bed.
|Auto Bed Leveling
The auto bed leveling feature will probe the buildplate on a few different points. This allows the 3D printer to detect deviations in the buildplate and adjust the print accordingly. This makes is much easier to start a print as you don't have to manually adjust the bed position.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a WIFI network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a Ethernet network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
