Hunter 3D Printer

Digital light processing 3D printer
A high-end / professional experience

The latest evolution in 3D printing, the Hunter is a high resolution DLP (Digital Light Processing) 3D printer, capable of a wide variety of applications. The Hunter uses photopolymer resin as it’s printing material, printing a whole layer of a model at one time. The Hunter DLP is equipped with a purpose-built HD projector which offers a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and a large colour touchscreen, that makes this 3D printer easy to control and operate. The printer follows the style of many comparable units, with a UV-protective translucent cover that allows for a 180-degree view of the 3D printing process and lifts for easy access. The Hunter a high-end 3D printer ideal for engineering, jewelry and medical professionals.

Self-developed Light Engine.

The Hunter presents a sleek and compact design with a modern, futuristic look that complements any working space. The print platform is compact with a build volume of 120 x 67.5 x150mm and a layer height of 25-50 microns. Equipped with a self-developed light engine, Hunter can finely tune the photo-curing process, optimising the wavelength of the light source to best suit the specific task to deliver quality, detailed results.

Light Intensity Uniformity.

Hunter DLP uses a liquid, called photopolymer resin, that hardens into a solid when exposed to certain frequencies of light. The Digital Light Processing (DLP) projector shines an image into a vat of resin for each layer of the object to be made. Once the first layer hardens onto a platform, the platform moves a tiny bit deeper into the pool of resin and the projector shines a new image to harden the next layer. The closable print chamber ensures that the print process is not compromised and the resin alert alarm warns when resin is low.

Exceptional Detail.

Compatible to 3rd party resin, Hunter offers users the flexibility to try four different resin types; the standard resin (FH1100), the castable resin (FH1200), the bio-compatible resin (luxaprint 3D shell) and the tough resin (FH1400). With this capacity, Hunter can be used for tough highly detailed engineering prototypes, jewelry, dental, investment casting, animation, electronics, toys, bio fabrication and medical, all with exceptional detail and quality.

Inventor I 3D Printer

Clean, Quiet, Contained and Cost-Effective
Innovation in the classroom

Inventor I is a premium quality, simple, easy to use 3D printer suited to the student or the professional. The latest upgrade to the Dreamer, Inventor I is a dual extrusion 3D printer that allows the user to expand their printing designs by printing 2 colours or materials at the same time, producing unique, quality prints with smooth curves. The two print heads work in harmony to create intricate designs that bring imagination to reality. With the latest technology upgrade, Inventor I is the best value, fully capable Dual Head 3D printer on the market.

Simple to Use. Innovative.

Like the Dreamer, Inventor I is sleek and compact with a fully enclosed high-end plastic-alloy body, Wi-Fi connectivity, a built-in SD port, a build volume of 230 x 150 x 140, a high-resolution colour touch screen and an integrated filament cartridge. The closable see through door gives a clear view of the printing process while the removable top lid keeps out dust and foreign particles. The fully enclosed printing chamber with the 6.3mm thick build plate made from aluminium alloy, eliminates external temperature interference and maintains excellent heat distribution without distortion, guaranteeing consistent high-quality prints.

Only with the Inventor.

With adjustable layer resolution and an embedded inner temperature control system, Inventor I guarantees smooth curves and quality prints. The temperature sensor combined with dual extraction fans enables the 3D printer to control the internal temperature of the enclosure and control cooling. Optimising cooling rates for different printing materials improves print quality, and significantly reduces warping of printed parts. The print cavity maintains a stable print temperature ensuring minimal shrinkage. The innovative, ‘pause/auto restart function’ means no more failed prints due to unexpected power outage or the printer being turned off. Inventor I is equipped with a built-in camera that allows monitoring of the process, even when away from the printer.

Optimised for Printing.

The MK9 extruder head is suitable for printing PLA, PVA, ABS, HIPS, flexible and new materials. With 5 built-in fans and a temperature measuring chip that controls the work chamber, the ABS filament prints successfully, the built-in fans optimise the chamber temperatures so that there is no warping, producing a perfect print. The same temperature control ensures the PLA is immediately cooled when extruded, giving a string free product.

Inventor II 3D Printer

Safe, Easy to use and Cost-effective 3D Printer
Quiet, quality printer ideal for the classroom

The Inventor II. is the latest version of the Flashforge Finder with enhanced features that include a larger build volume, onboard camera to monitor your 3D prints, an auto pause and restart function, as well as the added top cover and front door, for a fully enclosed build chamber that improves safely as well as print quality. Inventor II is a high quality, 3D printer with the latest extrusion technology suitable for education, engineering, design and home/hobby printing. Fully assembled, user-friendly and loaded with easy to use features, Inventor II is capable of printing ‘right out of the box’, with only a few ‘tweaks’, making it the perfect starter printer and the first choice for 3D printing novices and educators.

The Inventor II provides a unique printing experience that is quiet and safe to operate, essential for classroom and home use, and with a 3.5″ touch screen with big, easy to understand controls Inventor II allows you to print from a mobile device without a wired connection. The novice printer can be assured that with a slide-in plate, assisted bed-levelling and the intuitive colour touchscreen, Inventor II leads the way in the creative world of 3D printing, opening possibilities only limited by imagination.

Smart. Reliable. Safe.

Inventor II is a clean modern design with all cables concealed and heating components safely encased within a plastic alloy frame that looks and feels sturdy. The blue square shape has rounded corners and edges and the large see through door provides a clear view of the printing process as well as maintaining a clean, stable printing chamber. The increased build volume is 150x140x140mm and the print bed doubles as a sliding tray that is easy to insert and remove. The single non-toxic PLA filament loads easily via the filament guide tube and produces clear, simple creations. With many ‘easy to use’ features, a noise level as low as 50db and safe to use with children, Inventor II delivers a positive and productive printing experience.

Advanced. Intelligent Printer.

The 2nd generation Wi-Fi connection provides stable wireless file transmission, allowing the user to send files to the Inventor II memory, for a seamless printing experience, without the need of a USB cable. Inventor II has built-in filament run-out detection and an intelligent sensor that automatically pauses printing when the door is opened, resuming once closed, to ensure user safety. The four-sided air supply is designed for quick cooling of the PLA, ensuring a smooth and accurate print each time. Inventor II is the perfect printer for the classroom.

Biodegradable. Totally Safe.

Inventor II uses PLA which is an excellent filament for 3D printing because the point where it becomes mouldable, is relatively low at 60-65°C. PLA is one of the cheapest filaments readily available for home 3D printing and because it is made from starch and sugar cane by-products, it is a renewable product and biodegradable. Although PLA is an excellent build material, is not as impact-resistant or as rigid as ABS, so cannot be used for making many industrial products. PLA will become biodegrade in rain, and will melt when put in contact with anything over 65°C.
