Full Product Details
The Guider IIS follows its predecessor in its reputable structure. All moving parts are processed with immense precision to ensure stable print performance. With an all-metal frame design and body side panels made of high-strength ABS, the Guider IIS is also lightweight and durable.The Guider II also features a transparent front door to prevent curious hands from touching hot components while providing easy supervision of your 3d printing. Transporting the Guider II is made easier thanks to the two handles designed into the side of the printer.
Innovative Extruder Design
FlashForges new innovative extruder system incorperates an encircled air supply system to provide excellent quality on overhangs around the entire model. This superior cooling system ensure excellent quality on overhangs and improves printing quality when compared to other printers. This cooling can be turned off for printing high temperature materials like ABS or Nylon.
The FlashForge Guider IIS has a build volume of 280 x 250 x 300 mm (Length x Depth x Height), an excellent size for prototyping, small volume manufacturing, archutectual models, cosplay / prop making and education.
Versatile Printing and Open Filament System
Print your choice of 1.75mm ABS, PLA, PolySmooth™, Nylon, PETG, Flexibles and more with the open filament system. Different types of 3D Printing materials have their own optimal printing conditions. Higher temperature materials like ABS have a tendency to warp when cooled too quickly, while PLA and other low temperature materials curl and droop if printed too hot. The Guider IIS's enclosed design protects your prints from external environmental effects and drafts during printing.
The Guider IIS is equipped with an on-line camera to help you monitor your print jobs wherever you are!
The FlashForge Guider IIS is equipped with a heated glass build plate capable of reaching temperatures up to 100°C. A heated bed is important for improved bed adhesion and is required to print materials like PETG, ABS and PC. The glass is covered with FlashForge's blue printing sheets, designed to provide perfect adhesion when print a variety of materials.
Activated Carbon Filter
The equipped activated carbon filter and backboard fan helps to remove printing odors ensuring a suitable working environment.
The Guider IIS is equipped with a 5-inch full-colour touch screen and multilingual user interface. The touchscreen can also preview printing models, excellent for identifying the part you need to print next.
POLAR CLOUD ENABLED
The Guider IIS is PolarCloud enabled giving you the option to manage your 3D Printing from anywhere with an internet connection. You can connect and manage multiple printers at once, que print jobs, slice models, access unique educational curriculum and check how your print is going with the build in on-line camera.
FlashPrint OR 3rd Party SlicerS
FlashForges own FlashPrint software is very easy to use so you can start printing right away! FlashPrint was designed with a simple and intuitive interface that makes 3D Printing easy for beginners whilst giving expert users access to more advanced control over the printer. Generating support material with FlashPrint is easy. FlashPrint automatically generates supports for you based on the models overhang angles. You can also add your own supports to suit your model or remove unnecessary ones to save material. FlashForges Dendriform (treelike) supports allow you to print much more complex models, snapping off supports easily without damaging your objects.
Beginners can use FlashPrints presets and allow FlashPrint to take care of the rest and experts can access a wide range of paramaters like nozzle and bed temperature, printing speed, first layer thickness, retraction, support settings, variable layer heights, pause printing at height and more! Once sliced, FlashPrint provides layer-by-layer visualization, time and material estimates.
You can start your print job, pause, cancel, start assisted bed leveling, preheat the bed, load and unload filament right from the printer with the Guider IIS's 5-inch full-colour touch screen and multilingual user interface. The touchscreen can also preview printing models, excellent for identifying the part you need to print next. You can send files to the Guider II via WiFi, USB Stick, Ethernet or USB.

3 x PolyLite 1kg Spools (PLA, PETG or ABS)
With this printer we have also included 3 x bonus spools from Polymakers popular PolyLite™ range of filaments designed for general purpose 3D printing.
PolyLite™ PLA - PLA is the most popular plastic type, prominently used by educators, hobbyists and prototypers to print prototypes, models and figurines. PLA is one of the easiest materials to print, showcasing excellent dimensional stability with minimal printing requirements. PolyLite™ PLA is a high-quality PLA designed for reliability and ease of printing featuring Polymakers Jam-Free™ technology.
PolyLite™ PETG - PETG is a popular 3d printing material offering improved mechanical and thermal properties than regular PLA. Where as functional materials like ABS can significantly warp at larger sizes, PETG bridges the gap between PLA and ABS, with better dimensional stability than ABS and more functionality than PLA. PolyLite™ PETG is an affordable high quality PETG filament with balanced mechanical properties and ease of printing.
PolyLite™ ABS - ABS is one of the earliest and most common everyday 3D Printing materials which has maintained its popularity for prototyping and production due to its low cost, balanced mechanical properties, thermal properties and excellent printing quality. PolyLite™ ABS is made with a specialty bulk-polymerized ABS resin, which has significantly lower volatile content compared to traditional ABS resins. It delivers excellent printing quality with minimal odor during printing.
