Flashforge Inventor is a filament-based 3D printer with a totally-enclosed design that is safe to use indoors and around children. It features a stunning 50 micron print resolution for head-turning quality. Five cooling fans are equipped with a temperature activated sensor that regulates the build chamber temperatures. This enhances the print quality and prevents common issues of printing ABS and PLA. Inventor is also great for printing with soluble filament or even exotic filament such as flexible or composite materials. Inventor features a built-in camera so you can monitor the progress of your prints remotely. Simply download and connect to the mobile app to see your design come to life. Bring your designs to life with Inventor today.
Dual Extruders - 3D printing is better with two.
Be as wild as you can be in your designs—after all, great inventions often start from bold ideas. With two print heads, they work in harmony to build even the most intricate designs, however wild it may be. As one print head extrudes the build material, the other lays out soluble support material. At the end of the build, simply submerge it in water to dissolve the support material. The design comes to real life exactly as it was imagined. So go on and be wild.
Flashforge Inventor is also one of the most precise consumer 3D printers on the market today. With an adjustable layer resolution down to just 50 microns, ultra-smooth surfaces are made possible. Test and tweak your designs at low resolution first for faster build times. And when it is the final design, build it at 50 microns for showstopper quality that is sure to turn heads.
Print Resolution: 50-400 microns
Optimized for ABS printing.
ABS warp? Not with Inventor.
Heat-controlling sensors within Flashforge Inventor is fine tuned to keep chamber temperature at optimal temperatures for ABS filament to print successfully. It automatically senses temperature discrepancy and activates built-in fans to optimize chamber temperatures. So your ABS print job is perfect without warping.
Stringing-free PLA prints.
Only with Inventor.
Immediate cooling upon filament extrusion is at the core of what determines success with PLA printing. Since PLA becomes stringy when heated, having a 3D printer with proper temperature control is crucial. Flashforge Inventor’s dual extruder fans are on the frontline of ensuring PLA is immediately cooled when extruded. Two cooling fans in the back keep the build chamber at PLA optimized temperature range.
Exotic filament welcomed here.
Flexible, composite & soluble materials.
Advanced extruder is capable of printing with exotic build materials. With Flashforge Inventor, 3D printing becomes more than just ABS and PLA. Go ahead and build with the latest experimental filament.
Follow the journey of your builds.
View and monitor the progress of your prints with the built-in camera by connecting to the app. So even if you are on the go or in the office, you can remotely see your designs come to life.
Unexpected power outage?
No problem. Just resume print.
Flashforge Inventor’s internal memory retains the progress of your build. So that a sudden power outage does not affect the progress of your build. Inventor continues printing once power returns.
Premium quality construction.
