FlashForge Inventor Dual Extruder 3D Printer with 3D Printing Curriculum and 12 months ProCare Warranty

Flashforge Inventor is a dual extruder 3D printer with a fully-enclosed design that is safe for the school environment 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 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 the 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.

Inventor l Dual Extruder 3D Printer

Less Warping ABS. More successful and accurate output.

Temperature is very important for ABS Filament printing. Inventor features a closable door and removable top lid to keep out dust and foreign particles, meanwhile eliminate exterior temperature interference. The built-in heat controlling sensor activates fan automatically to stabilize the printing temperature for high-quality ABS prints. 

Power Failure Record Recovery

When encountering power failure during the printing process, the device continues printing after power restoration. The internal energy storage design ensures that the nozzle is moved away from the model at the moment of power failure so that the model will not be damaged by the high temperature of the nozzle.

Live Printing. Observe your model in real-time.

It's not easy to observe a model that requires 30 hours or more printing you won't know how the printing is going. Now you can use the built-in camera and the app to monitor the printing progress when you are away from the printer.


Top Quality components. Advanced assembly lines

From the outside in, all major parts such as motors and power supply are from the world's top suppliers, and all plastic parts are injection molded. These bring a consistent and stable inventor. We set rigorous standards for assembly lines, where each machine is tested over 48 hours for top quality.

2nd Generation Wireless Connection. More Stable.

Inventor features the 2nd generation WiFi connection with more stable wireless file transmission. And now you can send 3D files from your computer to inventor 8GB memory with your own WiFi network under AP or STA models. The USB stick is another stable way to transfer files. No USB cable, no interruption even when your computer runs into standby.

FlashPrint Slicing Software - 2D into 3D l Cut and Split l Easy to use

Smart supports. More possibilities.

Support generation doesn't get any easier than this. FlashPrint automatically generates supports based on the model's overhang angles. At the same time, you can add more necessary supports to output better prints or remove unnecessary ones to save materials. Dendriform (tree-like) supports allow you to print much more complex models, snapping off supports easily without damaging your objects.

3D Model Cutting

Featured with cut and split function, FlashPrint allows you to divide your model into several separate parts.
