This printer is amazing im new to 3d printing and this product was a great choice easy to set up and use. Print's come out amazing definitely a must buy. Make sure you set up the bed temp the flashforge program tho out of box its set on 50c witch my first print lifted on the corner set bed temp to 70c and haven't had a problem since

My 1st ever 3d printer. I found easy to set up and level the plate. I printed the test pla from the sd card. Vey impressed.
I found the software on the sd card , installed that and found that thingivse site is great. Downloaded some spool holders and omistands so my larger spools fit inside.
So far my attempts on abs are not going so well, but ti think that more to do with the things i want to print.
Highly recommend this printier

Awful bed adhesion on prints over 80 x 80mm footprint

After 2 weeks and 50 prints at different settings, with and without various glues we still cannot get the supplied PLA to adhere to the base, especially on the front left corner. If our supplier doesn’t come up with something soon we are sending it back. Our 5 year old UP printers are still going fine. Very disappointed.

 Flashforge Inventor enclosed chamber controls warping of 3d prints

Temperature modulation sensors and 5 fans air circulation for superior print quality.

The Flashforge Inventor includes temperature sensors that monitor the internal temperatures of the build chamber. The printer intelligently controls air flow with 5 separate fans to stabilise temperatures, control warpage and maximise print quality based on the various requirements of the filaments used.

This 3D Printer has become available thanks to open source technology. With an improved design and at less than two thirds the price of the original, it is the best value fully capable Dual Head 3D printer on the market.

Flashforge have developed their own easy to use 3D printer software - Flashprint which can generate gcode files or send directly to the printer via USB or SD Card. You may also use open source and third party 3D Printing slicing software with the FlashForge Inventor such as Simplify3D.

The Flashforge Inventor is a high performance, easy to use 3d printer and offers excellent value. Flashforge is fast becoming the largest 3D printer company in China for good reason!

Flashforge Flashprint custom support structures

The Flashforge Flashprint 3D Printing software that comes standard with these printers has seen a number of advancements. Although being very easy to use, it now includes some of the most advanced features that we have seen in 3d slicing programs. You can now generate your own custom support structures. Let the software automatically generate them, or add and subtract them at will.

Flashprint Slicing software now includes Tree Like support structures for resin printing

The Flashprint 3D Slicing software will now automatically build tree like support structures, plus you can build your own with just a few clicks. This powerful feature is especially ideal for creating support structures for Resin 3D Printers such as the up and coming Flashforge DLP Explorer.

With further improvements from the original design including improved electronic circuitry, a higher 0.1mm Z resolution, a refined MK10 print head and the addition of a cast aluminum heated build platform, allowing for printing in ABS and PLA plastic.

If this is not the best value low cost dual head 3D printer on the market, let us know, because we want to know about it!

Fully Enclosed-

The Flashforge Inventor is fully enclosed and includes a tempurature sensor combined with dual extraction fans. This enables the 3d printer to control internal temperatures of the enclosure, controlling cooling and optimising cooling rates for different printing materials which improves print quality, and significantly reducing warping of printed parts.

Improved Heated Build Platform-

The Flashforge Inventor includes an improved 6.3mm aluminum heat bed which has great flatness and a more even heat distribution, enabling more precise prints and better part adhesion. This platform can be heated up to 120℃, enabling the printer to print in ABS an HIPS plastic. Additionally the head be now includes an 3 point bed leveling system which simplifies the calibration the build platform. The Z axis has also been improved with increased rigidity and improved print quality, now with 10mm Z-axis Rods & Metal Supports.


Flashforge Creator Build Plate and Rails

Improvements to the 2017 edition of the Flashforge Creator Pro include a solid cast aluminum heat bed and 10mm Z axis rods.


The MK10 Dual Extruder Head-

The MK10 extruder head is suitable for printing PLA, PVA, ABS, HIPS, Flexible and new materials such and metals filled. It includes spring loaded tensioner, ensuring optimal reliability of the filament feeding mechanism. It incorporates a quality Nema stepper motor, polyoxymethylene injection molded and CNC machined aluminum parts as well as roller bearings for smooth axial motion and low friction teflon tubing, ensuring quality and reliable printing.

Dual print heads enpower the creativity by enability the production of two colour parts. Additionally the second print head can be used to print soluble support structures. No more cleaning up of complex supports inside internal cavities, now you can print in water soluble PVA, Lemonine soluble HIPS or Caustic soda soluable PLA.
