CraftUnique has long been the providers of strong, robust 3D printers, built using high quality components and reliable design decisions, and now they've taken all the lessons they've learned from many years of excellence and poured it into the Flow Series: four different levels of powerful 3D printer with exciting design improvements and amazing new features, such as a BL Touch, excellent automatic bed-leveling, and intelligent flow monitoring. And with a warranty that covers five years or 5,000 print-hours, they're standing proudly by the quality of these machines. Whether standard or XL, single extrusion or IDEX, there's a CraftBot Flow 3D printer that will fit your 3D printing project for many years to come.
The Right Tool for the Right Job
CraftUnique understands that no two manufacturing jobs, maker projects, or digital fabrication courses are the same, and they set out to build a series of 3D printers that would work perfectly for any application you have. The CraftBot Flow has the compact and sturdy structure and dependable performance you've come to expect from the beloved CraftBot Plus, but with a new hotend, main board, touchscreen and a whole lot more.
If you need access to the vast variety of options that only comes with dual extrusion, but need to keep to a concentrated size that fits perfectly into any print farm or maker-space, the Flow IDEX is ready to 3D print with multiple materials at once, including soluable support material that opens up design possibilities beyond what a single extrusion machine can provide. And with the innovational design of Independent Dual Extrusion, the print heads remain out of the way not in use.
Choose the 3D printer that's perfect for you, and go with the Flow.
Built like a Tank
CraftBot has long been known for their heartily built 3D printers--able to be moved across a print lab or a continent, while print quality remains excellent--and the Flow Series has doubled down on that guarantee with a reinforced double-shell structure and robust aluminum extrusions along the Z-axis. Even with larger structures, due to the larger build volumes, CraftUnique has ensured a powerhouse of a 3D printer you can always count on.
Fewer Filament Jams and Clogs Keep You Up and 3D Printing
The attentive and reactive flow sensor system of the CraftBot 3 has been expanded upon and implemented into the Flow Generation, so you can be sure any clogs or breaks in filament will trigger the system and your 3D prints will be paused, so you can fix the issue and continue 3D printing.
But they didn't stop there: the hotends have also been redesigned to ensure fewer jams while improving print quality, overall. And since they're all-metal, right out of the box, you can get started with printing the advanced, abrasive materials you need for high performance applications one day one.
