Flashforge Finder 3D Printer Review

Flashforge Finder 3D Printer Review

The Flashforge Finder has a variety of connectivity options and good print quality. It has a small build volume and can only be printed with polylactic acid filament (PLA). Because of its convenience, quality, and approachability, the beginner-friendly Flashforge Finder has remained relevant for nearly half a decade.

Design and features:

This is a single-extruder open-frame 3D printer. It has rounded sides and beveled top edges and is formed like a cube. We tested the red and black variant, which measures 16.5 by 16.5 by 16 inches (HWD) and weighs 27 pounds.


This printer’s build volume is really low. When it comes to establishing support structures, the software is notoriously heavy-handed. However, this may deter you from attempting more ambitious prints with this printer. It’s a nice piece of software for novices that produce decent prints.


 Flashforge offers 1.5-pound PLA spools in a variety of colors. ABS is a type of acrylonitrile butadiene acrylate (ABS) that may be used in most 3D printers. The build plate of the Flashforge Finder 3D printer is leveled by a built-in leveler. Flashforge’s Flashpoint software can be downloaded from the company’s website or installed via a USB thumb drive. A 3D object file can be loaded into the printer and moved, rotated, or rescaled.


I used the Finder to print five test objects. Four of them were printed without a hitch. When it was nearly finished, the fifth object—a somewhat tall and thin object that tests a printer’s capacity to print raised lettering and a variety of geometric shapes that protrude from a nearly vertical surface—pulled away from the build platform. The text portion of the test was damaged, but the remainder printed fine—not as well as the MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer, but better than the XYZPrinting da Vinci Jr. and the LulzBot TAZ 5 3D Printer


  • The pricing is reasonable. 
  • Design that is simple but effective 
  • Simple to use
  • Quiet. 
  • Excellent print quality.


  • The build volume is modest.
  • Documentation is lacking.
  • There isn’t any automated bed leveling.


The print quality of the Flashforge Finder is excellent for a low-cost 3D printer. Users can print from a USB thumb drive or over a USB or Wi-Fi connection. The Finder is more expensive than the XYZPrinting da Vinci Jr.
