    Technologyoutlet is proud to announce the global release of the Flashforge Inventor 2017. This latest design is a further development of the Highly acclaimed Flashforge Dreamer Series of 3d printers which includes an increased build volume and enhanced features. These include a larger build volume by increasing the build height by 20mm. The build size is now 230 x 150 x 160mm. New technology includes a pause/auto restart feature that means your prints are not ruined if there is a power cut. There is also now an on-board camera to monitor your 3d prints from any mobile device. 


    The new Flashforge Inventor for 2017 now includes a camera so you can monitor your 3d prints from mobile devices


    This 3D Printer has become available thanks to open source technology. With an improved design and at less than two thirds the price of the original, it is the best value fully capable Dual Head 3D printer on the market. 

    The left print head is optimised for PLA with integrated fan, whilst the right extruder is optimised for ABS

    Flashforge have developed their own easy to use 3D printer software - Flashprint which can generate gcode files or send directly to the printer via USB or SD Card. You may also use open source and third party 3D Printing slicing software with the FlashForge Inventor such as Simplify3D.

    The Flashforge Flashprint 3D Printing software that comes standard with these printers has seen a number of advancements. Although being very easy to use, it now includes some of the most advanced features that we have seen in 3d slicing programs. You can now generate your own custom support structures. Let the software automatically generate them, or add and subtract them at will.



    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.

    Fully Enclosed-

    The Flashforge Inventor is fully enclosed and includes a tempurature sensor combined with dual extraction fans. This enables the 3d printer to control internal temperatures of the enclosure, controlling cooling and optimising cooling rates for different printing materials which improves print quality, and significantly reducing warping of printed parts.


    Improved Heated Build Platform-

    The Flashforge Inventor includes an improved 6.3mm aluminum heat bed which has great flatness and a more even heat distribution, enabling more precise prints and better part adhesion. This platform can be heated up to 120℃, enabling the printer to print in ABS an HIPS plastic. Additionally the head be now includes an 3 point bed leveling system which simplifies the calibration the build platform. The Z axis has also been improved with increased rigidity and improved print quality, now with 10mm Z-axis Rods & Metal Supports.
