Design And Features

FlashForge Guider 2 FlashForge Guider 2 is a printer of the second generation which is the follow-up of the flashforge Guider. The first thing you'll notice is the build plate of the new version is 70% larger than the previous version. This is a great enhancement if you are looking to make larger-scale prototyping and printing. This model is more modern and includes other improvements which will elevate this printer in terms of quality.

The other major change has been that the sprayer has been designed to allow for the flow of air. This led to improved the quality of prints and their consistency. A variety of different nozzles are available. This makes it possible to print with a wider variety of materials. One thing that users who had the original Flashforge Guider consistently comment about is the clarity and sharpness of the latest model. Flashforge is a brand known for high-quality products, however the latest Guider II creates professional-quality prints which are sufficient for prototyping and engineering.

Another aspect that has made an improvement was that this printer supports automatic leveling. This allows for quick setup and easy, and you don't need to fiddle with an old piece of paper. Another feature they have introduced is a Resume Print feature. If power is cut off that could happen when someone falls over the cable, it is not necessary to remove the model and begin again. All you need to do is Resume Print to resume printing, and it will take over the place it was when it stopped. The printer also features the ability to detect filament run-out so you won't be faced with any unexpected issues.

The frame itself is made of plastic alloy. It's sturdy, but it's quite difficult to transport. It may be harder to maneuver, however that's what you would expect from this kind of machine. One thing we like is that the printing plate can be removed. This is a feature that will not see on many printers. It makes setting up and cleanup a breeze.


Flashforge has added lots of wonderful options for guide 2. However, the main thing to consider is how well it prints. In this way there aren't many printers at this price that are as good as this model. It is able to create an underlying layer of 0.1-0.5mm that is just enough to produce stunning details. The precision of positioning is 11 microns on both the both X and Y axes as well as 2.5 millimeters for the Z-axis. The resolution of the layer is +/- 0.2mm. This level of accuracy is fine enough to print professional quality and small-scale production parts runs.

The printer runs a little slower, based on the kind of filament you're using and the level of precision. It is expected and the printer can go slower at lower resolutions, at about 24 cc/hour which is about 100 millimeters per second. That's pretty rapid for a device of this quality. It's worth the wait because of the high quality prints it creates.

It features the ability to heat nozzles from between 0-240C and the printing bed can be heated up to 120C. This helps create an even thickness, and also create solid, even objects. It is also quiet when it's running. The chamber for printing is closed, this means that the prints won't be affected by air temperature or ambient movement. This can also enhance its quality prints.

Version 1.0 of FlashForge Guider is compatible with Windows XP and above, MAC OS X, and Linux systems. It features 5 inches of touchscreen with a color LCD. You can upload your designs with an USB stick USB cable, WiFi as well as the Internet connection. It's suitable to work with FlashPrint slicing programs. The printer has a variety of choices when it comes to compatibility. This is another reason that Flashforge is a household name as a leader in 3D printers.

Packing And Assembly

Guider 2. guider2 is equipped with a quick Start Guide to help you get up and running quickly. This User Manual is well-written and easy to follow. A tip is to make certain to go through the User Guide before you read the User Guide. They offer complete unpacking instructions and step-by-step assembly instructions.

The unit is packaged in a single package. It's well-packed, and is protected by foam. It is recommended to take off the foam in order and then take the unit up. It may be necessary to have an additional pair of hands to do this. It is necessary to lift the unit, and one to hold it down since it's packed very tightly. At the bottom of the box, you'll see the filament, power cable, the USB cable, a spool holder, the filament tube guide, glue stick, and a tool bag. In the tool bag you will find an USB stick, two Allen wrenches, a stamping wrench and a tool to remove pins. Also, you will find grease and a screwdriver.

The box includes everything you require and you'll be required to provide nothing else. The majority of the equipment is assembled and the step-by steps instructions are easy to follow with great illustrations and photos. It's a simple unit to assemble, set up, and then get prepared to print.


One thing Flashforge is well-known for is its excellent customer support. The entire manuals are free to download from their website. It is also possible to download Flashprint software too. Chapter 8 in the User Guide offers a number of ways to contact us for assistance.

The site has a vast knowledge base that is simple to use. There are several online communities for users of Flashforge.
