Why I should pick your printer out of all FDM printers on the market?
Because we have the best appealing website.
What is the quality of the prints?
The Focus printer can reach the minimal layer height of 100 micron (0,1 mm), which is as well as industry standards among desktop printers. Depending on the material used and application of objects you can choose whether they require a finishing or not.
Where can I purchase a Focus Printer?
A Focus printer can be purchased directly at byFlow or at one of our distributors. See www.3dbyflow.com/company
How long is the delivery time of a printer?
Delivery is within 8 weeks after payment is received. (Currently we’re speeding up production and logistics)
What warranty do you provide?
One year factory warranty, carry-in. Only the extruder is a consumable since we cannot verify if suitable filaments or paste materials are used correctly.
Do you offer support outside of the Netherlands?
Yes, we have resellers in most European countries who provide support if you buy the printer from them. If you order directly from byFlow you can ship your product to our manufactures for repairs.
What operating system do you need to use the printer?
The printer is connected by Wi-Fi and controlled by a web browser like Chrome, Explorer, Firefox or Safari. Therefore no drivers are required and any operating system is compatible.
Why is there only Wi-Fi connection?
USB connection requires installing drivers that need to be compatible and updated over time. This costly activity is no longer necessary since everything is done through the web browser.
Is the software included in the price?
Yes, it is open source software so also the updates are free.
Is it possible to change the properties of the printer for example if we want to increase the print speed?
Yes, from the touchscreen during printing you can change several settings like speed and flowrate.
What software is needed?
You can use any design software, but you have to be able to generate a stl or obj file, from this file you can generate a gcode with slic3r or cura with our provided settings.
Does it come with a printhead for both filaments and pastes?
You can choose if the filament or pasta printhead is included or buy one extra to print all the possible materials.
Do you have other print heads besides the Fused Filament Fabrication?
We are developing new printheads to provide customers in the future with new 3D technology and a broader range of materials.
How to upload new firmware to your printer?
New firmware improves the reliability and accuracy of the printer. When new firmware is provided via our website, connect the Focus to Wi-Fi, visit the settings page via your browser, and click upgrade firmware.
Why would I 3D print food?
I tried to count all the materials I can print with Focus. Try as I may, it's not 20. Could you list them?
