Flashforge has unveiled a new 3D printer that the company has been showcasing this month and created specifically for children in the form of the Finder 3D printer.
The new Flashforge Finder 3D printer has been designed to be easy to use and therefore does have few limitations when compared to other 3D printers on the market in terms of specifications and functionality.
The first is that the Finder will only print PLA filament due to its non-heated printing bed and open compartment casing, that will prove a difficult environment to print ABS plastic due to the materials shrinkage during the printing process.
At the current time the Finder 3D printer is currently still being developed and tweaked to provide a trouble-free combination of both software and hardware. For children to experience the joy of 3D printing objects they have created or download from online resource such as Thingyverse. So no specific details are available to share with you at the moment but as soon as more become available from Flashforge we will let you know.
Flashforge is hoping to start selling their new 3D printer to consumers during March of this year when it will be priced at around $500.
