    Flashforge Adventure 3 is a new generation 3D printer provide the best quality at a very affordable price. This 3D printer is very simple and really easy to use. My friend has bought this 3D printer from Mechestore. It's an amazing 3D printer and fast heating up to 200?C

    I'm looking to buy an Adventurer 3 but am struggling between the Standard and the Lite. It seems like the only difference is the web cam, is that true?
    Any other differences? And if so how will that effect my ability to print reliably?
    Thank you

    the adventurer 3 and the monoprice voxel are the SAME printer.
    Monoprice don't make any printers just buy them from other people and rebadge them, :-)

    I have about 1600 hours on my Adventurer 3 and, in general, find the machine performing quite well. I have had a few instances of feed chattering, filament change over difficulties and spoiled builds. I use Polar Cloud for all my builds and have customized a dozen or so items as well as resizing a number of others. I have called upon the FlashForge support group on more than one occasion and found them helpful.

    The image below is of a box I was printing that oddly began to lay down filament in a strange pattern that had no identifiable relationship to the image portrayed on Polar Cloud. I had successfully built this box in it's original dimensions but then scaled it up nearly twice size and got this mess. I'm very curious as to what is going on that made my printer deviate from what was a simple flat bottom of the box. Any explanation anyone can offer would be gratefully received. I have since printed other items with no difficulty.

    Happy Adventurer 3 owner

    I have about 1600 hours on my Adventurer 3 and am pleased with it's performance. I chose to buy the standard rather than the lite machine. I guess I thought the webcam might be useful and I haven't been disappointed. I use Polar Cloud for all my builds and have customized a dozen or so items as well as resizing a number of others. I have called upon the FlashForge support group on more than one occasion and found them helpful.

    Polar Cloud works well as a visual representation tool that provides a lot of ways to tinker with the build settings. A definite plus is that it shows the webcam image which you can view on your phone or tablet remote from the printer. I'm not certain what other benefits the standard has over the lite but the camera is a real plus for keeping an eye on what's going on.

    Slicer alternatives with Adventurer 3

    With my previous 3D printer I have been using the Prusa Slicer (which is derived from Slic3r). Unfortunately the Flashprint slicer lacks some of the features of the Prusa, and the Adventurer 3 does not recognize the .gx files from Prusa although the gcodes seem to be correct.
    I finally found out that the Adventurer 3 requires the binary data at the start of the gcode to show a small image of the object to be printed.

    Has anybody found a solution to overcome this problem? To insert some binary code into the Prusa .gx file does not work, and although Flashprint can read (its own) .gx files it does not recognize the Prusa .gx files anyway.
    How can the Adventurer 3 firmware or Flashprint be modified to ignore the binary representation of the object - or is there another solution?
