Flashforge 3D Printer Adventurer 3 $454.90 Delivered @ Flashforge AU via Amazon AU

70

Stumbled across this one, a good $200 less than normal. I paid $669 for mine and it's a brilliant entry level 3D printer imo

My only recommendations would be to stick to Flashforge filament, otherwise you might get 'stuck'. Otherwise if you're willing to spend the time fine tuning temperatures to filament, it will do that too.
I've had to pull mine apart a few times (surprisingly easy to do, lots of youtube help available too).

    This is the best entry level 3D printer that just more or less works as soon as you buy it. So getting it for kids and stuff like that, this is pretty decent.

    Otherwise, Ender 3 is the way to go if you don't mind really learning a bit more about it and don't mind tinkering/customising/upgrading parts of it. Bigger print volume and cheaper, so is better value.

    To OP: Print one of these out and stop buying overpriced flashforge filament. Go with esun I'd say.

      thanks, so lets say if i was to buy this, what else besides filament would i need to start printing stuff off say thingiverse? and what would be the learning curve to make my own designs to print?

        I'd say to print stuff right away you need to learn at least to use the slicer.
        This piece of software is what translates stl from thingiverse into gcode file that the printer can understand.
        Two mainstream slicers are prusa and cura (flashprint slicer for flashforge printers), plenty of youtube resource to help you understand what parameters to tweak. (layer height, infill percentage, print speed, nozzle & bed temperature, fan speed for cooling, support, bed plate adhesion, etc)

        In terms of consumables, some people need glue stick to help with the bed adhesion.
        For non-consumables, you might want to get an airtight storage and re-usable silica gels for your filament since they absorb moisture if you leave them out.
        Also your basic tools like pliers to break support materials, clipper to cut your filament and scraper to get your printed model off the bed.

        About designing, if you want to start simple with tinkercad I'd say the learning curve won't be too steep.
        If you want to jump to the deep end from the get go (depending on your current skills this might be feasible too) then you can start with Fusion 360.

        These are good to have in the toolbox.

      oh I don't use the FF filament, was more a passing comment for people new to it to try the FF first for effortless printing. easy to get discouraged if you end up having to clean the head every other print (an issue I found when trying a few other filaments) ;)
