Updated after more than 50 prints – Easy and Powerful – great tech support! Update January 2017 – Printed with Ninjaflex filament, no issues. The latest FlashPrint software incudes presets for a few different types of filament now, including flexible PLA. This printer just keeps amazing me!

Excellent in every way Does exactly what it says. It is a preassembled 3d printer that will have you printing in mere minutes (15 mins). I really like the form factor and the color LCD screen. I had originally passed over this printer and purchased the Creator Pro thinking it would be better with the dual extruder feature and larger build plate but I found that printer to be very unstable producing lackluster results. I also found that in order to print using the dual extruders, the STL file has to be setup to use dual extruders or you’ll just have to pause at a certain percent in the build and change filament colors. In the end I returned the Creator Pro and bought the Finder and I couldn’t be happier. Its so much easier to remove prints with a removable build plate too! This is the closest thing to a consumer ready 3D printer.

Amazing customer service and great, easy to use printer This printer is amazing. Before I received it Tang e-mailed me a more detailed version of the manual than what you find in the box. Within an hour of opening my printer I was printing a test cube, then a “Benchy” boat. They looked amazing, not at all stringy or textured like I have seen bad 3D printers make. My 6 year old, with supervision, was able to print himself a Benchy boat and 6 die (dice) as well as bracelet (picture included) which we they spray-painted with copper. It looks incredible. On day 3 my filament stopped extruding and Tang got back to me within hours and over a dozen e-mails later he had walked me through clearing out a clog in my printer’s nozzle and then re-calibrating my nozzle (the z-axis). All of these e-mails were sent between 9:00pm and 10:30pm Eastern Time, I do not know where Tang lives but I was not expecting any response that late at night and he sent me videos and look at my photos to make sure I knew exactly what to do. If I ever want…
