The first impression of this machine would let you think of it is a very compact solution for your 3D printing needs. And some users may even feel the lack of bigger build space. However, one can definitely go with the procedure of connecting parts to create a large print. Given that Flash Forge Finder is highly precise, and can be used for creating different parts and connecting them together won’t prove to be a tedious job.

When opening the box, the machine comes fully assembled. One is sure to love the color and frame of the cute machine that could fit perfectly inside a small house as well. With 11 microns and 2.5 microns of X, Y, and Z position precision, Flash Forge Finder is capable of creating detailed geometries. The machine has a 0.4mm of nozzle diameter that most of the printers encompass. Moreover, it also supports the standard 1.75 mm filament diameter and let users print with the third-party materials. Overall, the print results are decent and it would be fun to create nice models right out of this 3D printer. Flash Forge Finder is very reliable and can handle difficult models, one can print the finer detail as well as achieve smooth surfaces when working with the 3D printer. However, the printer does bring a few challenges when printing with support. These are difficult to get rid of completely, hence, leaving rough residue behind. The price of the printer is affordable and highly attractive also to note that the Flashforge Finder was featured in our 10 Best Affordable 3D Printers 2020.
