Not sure how good this printer is but it seems cheap compare to what other shops are selling it for.

i couldn't find much info on this particular model HE180335. maybe someone who is more knowledgeable can add to this.

This is part of Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals for 2021

  • Looks like a rebrand of a Flashforge Adventurer 3, even uses the FlashPrint software.

  • Appearance wise, it is identical to the Flashforge Adventurer 3 I have sitting next to me at the moment…..even down to the location of the stickers on the front of the printer.

    • is it worth getting this over a flashforge?

      • If it is just a rebadged Flashforge then given Costco's return policy, it is probably a better buy at the moment than the equivalent Flashforge. I've been really happy with my Flashforge Adventurer 3 as a no hassle 3d printer to sit on my desk at work. There are probably more capable printers but it has happily printed everything I've wanted it to print with very very few nozzle clogs etc.

  • does this take full size reels of filament? Or is it a half reel?

    • It takes 0.5kg spools of filament, but you can get adapters for larger spools and just trim the plastic of the spool surround down to fit.

  • It is a rebadged Flashforge.. the link to the FAQ for the item on the Costco website is Flashforge branded.

    Bought a couple of the cocoon versions earlier this year for this price, which state they are this Balco model & are going well so far. Bit dinky compared to the big boys but a nice little printer with great features & small enclosed footprint. Great for most small projects. Printed the spool adaptor, but just bought the smaller spools as it fits inside the compartment.
