Great Value

I picked up a finder for 300 USD. As my first printer this thing is great! Super easy to set up and use their provided flash print slicer. I'm pretty sure a 5 year old could operate this thing. Super happy with it!

Easy to use, affordable and set and forget 3d printer.

Very easy to use, the bundled software is good, but don't have many advanced options. The printer is ready to use, but I recommend at least 2 upgrades: Full metal hotend with chrome-plated nozzle and CNC machined lever from Microswiss.  With first, I see a very good upgrade on the quality and finish of PLA and PETG, and the second is to avoid the problem with the plastic lever, who tends to bend after some time due to temperature.  

I actually am trying a hotbed on this printer, but all my prints before are using the stock bed, which is not heated. With PLA there is near to nothing warping ( need a good layer of glue ), and zero warpings with PETG, which is my favorite material with this printer now.

I don't know why, but after the last firmware upgrade my printer is able to reach a lot of high temperatures, and I successfully tested it up to 250 Celsius degrees. The temperature settings allow me to go up to 300 degrees, but I am afraid to go full up.

I really liked this printer, and only complains about the printed area which is limited to 140x140x140 mm. But for a beginner, it's a no brainer. 

Another thing is the original spool holder, which is smaller than normal spools and only accepts up to 500g spools of Flashforge made filaments. But it is really easy-to-solve-problem: here on Pinshape you can find a lot of 3d printed spool holders for Finder, and choose which is better for you.

Great for beginners

This is my first printer and I have really enjoyed it. Out of about 50 prints i have done, i have only had about 2 major issues with prints. The software used is very user friendly, as well is loading and unloading filament. My only issue with this printer is that i had to print a filament holder to accommodate any filament i bought. Only the roll of filament that comes with the printer will fit on the printer, other rolls are too large to fit inside the filament holding tray.

Economico, fácil de usar para principiantes

La tengo apenas desde hace una semana, la verdad me ha encantado la compra aunque pagué casi 300 dólares americanos me siento satisfecho.

Pros:

Rápida de usar, lo desempaque y 30 minutos ya estaba imprimiendo una prueba.

Existe una gran cantidad de archivos con extensión STL compatible con la impresora.

La calidad es relativamente buena, se puede mejorar posterior a la impresión con pintura normal, epóxico o poliuretano.

No consume mucha energía, 65 watts.

Contras:

No viene el disco de instalación con el software, tienes que descargarlo de la página web del fabricante.

El tiempo de impresión, puede ser desde 30 minutos (objetos simples y pequeños) hasta más de 8 horas si es complejo y grande (por encima de 8 cms).

Un consejo, imprimir siempre con una base pues es más fácil de extraer la figura. Cuando imprimí una figura sin la base me fue difícil extraer la figura y dañe un poquito la superficie de la plataforma.

La recomiendo.

Excellent starter machine

Very easy to use and minimal early failures. Printed a number of different items and impressed with the output quality. Really good printer to use when starting out. No longer available, replaced by the Lite version, which is slightly cheaper and identical except does not have WiFi. To me this would not be an issue as I do not use the WiFI now, I like to connect via USB!
