4 Reasons For for Choosing the Flashforge Finder

Card Reader

The Flashforge Finder has a card reader (as do the Dremel 3D2001 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0), whereas the MakerBot Replicator+ and the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 do not have this feature. More ...

Some 3D printers have an integrated card read that will accept a standard sized memory card.

This allows the 3D printer to read data on memory cards, which are an easy way of transferring blueprints to the device.

Better Kagoo Score

The Flashforge Finder has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the MakerBot Replicator+ scored 73, the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 scored only 64 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 scored 79.

Newer by 15 Months

The Flashforge Finder was released 14 months ago, but the Dremel 3D2001 was released four years ago, the MakerBot Replicator+ was released three years ago, the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 was released two years ago and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 was released three years ago

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Ichip.ru and Chip.de both gave the Flashforge Finder a better review score. More ...

Ichip.ru: Flashforge Finder = 79% vs Dremel 3D2001 = 78%

Chip.de: Flashforge Finder = 81% vs Dremel 3D2001 = 80%

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Flashforge Finder

Viewing Window

The Flashforge Finder has a viewing window (as do the Dremel 3D2001, the MakerBot Replicator+ and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0), whereas the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 does not have this feature. More ...

A viewing window on a 3D printer lets you watch the printer as it works.

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

More Expensive by $71

The Flashforge Finder is $71 more expensive than the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0.

Not As Many Stockists

The Flashforge Finder is only stocked by 1 seller, however the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 is stocked by 2 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this 3D printer.
Expert Review Rating is Worse

The Flashforge Finder only has an average expert score of 79%, but the Dremel 3D2001 has an average expert rating of 85% (based on 4 reviews).

Worse Brand

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Dremel 3D2001

Card Reader

The Dremel 3D2001 has a card reader (as do the Flashforge Finder and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0), whereas the MakerBot Replicator+ and the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 do not have this feature. More ...

Better Expert Reviews

Based on 4 reviews, the Dremel 3D2001 has an average expert review score of 85%, but the Flashforge Finder has an average rating of 79% (based on 8 reviews) and the MakerBot Replicator+ has an average rating of 75% (based on 27 reviews).

A Little Better User Reviews

Based on 7 reviews, the Dremel 3D2001 has an average user review score of 94%, but the Flashforge Finder has an average rating of 92% (based on 118 reviews) and the MakerBot Replicator+ has an average rating of 71% (based on 13 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Dremel 3D2001

0.3mm Smaller Maximum Layer Thickness

The Dremel 3D2001 is a 0.1mm max layer thickness 3D printer, whereas the MakerBot Replicator+ and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 are both 0.4mm max layer thickness 3D printers (0.3mm bigger). More ...

The maximum layer thickness is the maximum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A bigger layer thickness means that each layer will be both thicker and stronger, leading to a more stable final piece. However the thickness means that it won't be quite as detailed, and will look more bulky.

0.08mm Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

The Dremel 3D2001 has a minimum layer thickness of 0.1mm (as does the MakerBot Replicator+), however the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 is a 0.02mm min layer thickness 3D printer (0.08mm thinner). More ...

The minimum layer thickness denotes the minimum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A smaller layer thickness means that the individual layers will all be smaller, but there will be more of them making up the object. This means that while the object may not be quite as hardy, it will be far more details, since it's made up of far more layers.

Viewing Window

The Dremel 3D2001 has a viewing window (as do the Flashforge Finder, the MakerBot Replicator+ and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0), whereas the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 does not have this feature. More ...

A viewing window on a 3D printer lets you watch the printer as it works.

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

More Expensive by $250

The Dremel 3D2001 is $179 more expensive than the Flashforge Finder and $250 more expensive than the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0.

Not As Many Stockists

The Dremel 3D2001 is only stocked by 1 shop, however the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this 3D printer.
Older by Over Three Years

The Dremel 3D2001 is three years older than the Flashforge Finder, 17 months older than the MakerBot Replicator+, two years older than the Monoprice MAKER SELECT 3D PRINTER V2 and 21 months older than the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0.

Worse Brand

Dremel 3D printers have an average rating of only 51.6%, however Flashforge has an average rating of 68% and XYZ Printing has an average rating of 73.5%.
