in this video, we will tell you about the Flashforge Guider 3 Plus professional desktop 3D printer. The Guider 3 Plus is a single extruder FDM machine with a large build area of 350 x 350 x 600 millimeters. Its key design features are the CoreXY kinematics and the dual ball screw drive on the Z-axis. A few words about the base model. The Guider 3 does not look like the Plus version — it is more compact, and the overall design is noticeably different. As for the technical specifications, they are generally similar, with the main exception, perhaps, of the build volume being considerably smaller at 300 x 250 x 340 millimeters. The Guider 3 Plus has a completely enclosed build chamber and a print bed capable of heating up to 120 degrees Celsius with a flexible cover. The maximum extruder heating temperature is 320 degrees, with a hotend quick replacement feature. Advanced hardware and build quality allow printing at speeds of up to 250 millimeters per second without compromising quality. The Guider 3 Plus can process a wide range of plastic filaments including ABS, PLA, PETG, polycarbonate, nylon, polypropylene, glass- and carbon-fiber-enhanced composites. Two sealed compartments with silica gel have integrated temperature and humidity sensors and are designed to store one-kilogram spools of filament. Both the proprietary FlashPrint software and any other convenient slicing program, such as Cura or Slic3r, can be used to prepare 3D models for printing. You can send files to the machine via USB, Ethernet, or a wireless connection.

The Flashforge Guider 3 is a 3D printer designed for professional use, with a spacious build volume and numerous features. This desktop FDM printer is perfect for small to medium businesses looking for a cost-efficient way to produce small-batch manufacturing needs. The Guider 3 boasts an impressive printing speed of up to 250 mm/s and features a rigid aluminum frame, as well as lightweight yet durable ABS and acrylic sheets of the enclosure to ensure printing stability during long hours of continuous operation. The compact footprint and reduced weight make it easy to integrate the printer into any production environment.

The Guider 3 comes equipped with a heated glass build plate that can be swapped out for a magnetic flexible steel sheet, allowing for optimal printing surface choice depending on filament type, model size, and other parameters. Automatic and auxiliary bed leveling with a highly sensitive inductive proximity sensor ensures precise Z-axis height adjustment for proper layer adhesion.

Compared to the previous Guider IIs, the double-gear extruder provides a 150% higher filament feeding force to prevent clogging issues. A quick-release nozzle allows for easy diameter changes, and the printer also includes a filament detection sensor, auto shut-down, sleep mode activation, and efficient air filtration with a built-in HEPA 13 filter.

Print quality

The Guider 3 extruder is equipped with a stainless steel nozzle that can heat up to 320°C, allowing for printing with a variety of filaments, including high-temp and reinforced materials. The minimum layer height of 50 microns ensures high-quality parts with a smooth surface finish.


The machine is compatible with a wide range of thermoplastics, including ABS, PLA, PC, PA, HIPS, ASA, PETG, PA-CF, PLA-CF, PETG-CF, PETG-GF, and others. The open material system makes filament choice virtually unlimited.

Build volume


The build volume of the Guider 3 is 300 x 250 x 340 mm, which is ample for small-batch manufacturing or building large parts. The printer features a 4.3" LCD touchscreen with an intuitive and well-organized UI, as well as Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity and a USB slot for easy transfer of printing tasks from the PC to the printer on a USB stick. The Guider 3 has an effective management system that allows for the control of multiple devices simultaneously and automatic resumption of printing after a power outage. The built-in camera provides real-time monitoring of the printing process. The printer comes with the proprietary Flashprint 5 slicer software, which features a powerful set of functions and a user-friendly interface. Other compatible slicers are Slic3r and Cura.

What’s in the box

The Guider 3 3D printer kit includes a spool of filament, glass platform, scraper, unclogging pin, leveling card, cleaning brush, lubricating grease, glue, thermally conductive adhesive, USB stick, heat-insulating gloves, tool set, all necessary cables, and a user guide. The machine is available in black and has an elegant look and compact design suitable for any studio, small enterprise, or educational institution.
