Flashforge Foto 8.9 4k LCD Resin 3D Printer Review

Flashforge Foto 8.9 4k Monoscreen 3d resin printer is good news for beginner players of light-curing 3D printers.


Flashforge Foto 8.9 4k LCD Resin 3D Printer

In recent years, light-curing 3D printers have gradually been favored by users. When printing models such as jewelry figures, compared with FDM 3D printers, there are problems such as heavy layers, slow speed, and troublesome post-processing. Light-curing 3D printers perform better. Previously, the mainstream light-curing models on the market were 3D printers such as SLA and DLP, and their high prices discouraged some consumers. As the technology of LCD 3D printers becomes more and more mature, and the price is more affordable while satisfying the printing accuracy, the LCD light curing machine has been sought after by many experienced users after its launch. FlashForge has been exploring the field of light-curing printers and related applications for many years, and the Foto series came into being in response to the pain points in the application of ornamental models. At present, Foto series 3D printers have successively launched Foto6.0, Foto8.9, Foto8.9s, and Foto13.3 models. The various products named according to the screen size are aimed at different audiences and application directions and have different functions. Today, I will first introduce the Flashforge Foto 8.9 4k Monoscreen 3d resin printer to you.

You may know the basic information about the Flashforge Foto 8.9 4k Monoscreen 3d resin printer.

First, when you purchase this product, you can get the following product accessories. They are a 3D printer, a power cord, a quick start guide, an after-sales service card, a power adapter, a USB stick, a build platform, gloves, a tool kit, a paper funnel, a metal scraper, a plastic scraper.

Flashforge Foto 8.9 resin 3D printer is a large LCD UV photocuring fast printing machine with an 8.9″ 4K monochrome screen, and a new matrix UV LED light source. The printing size is 7.56×4.72×7.87 inches. In addition, it has ultra-high resolution 3840*2400. Significantly restores 3d design details, and ensures Foto 8 prints fine 3d models with full specifics. The LCD lifespan is prolonged. The Monochrome LCD screen on the Foto excels its RGB counterparts at lifespan, replacement is not required before thousands of hours of use. The Foto is also equipped with an effective UV cooling system to prolong the screen life even further, all that combined brings down the overall maintenance cost of the machine. It is more durable with a lifespan of around 2000h than an ordinary color screen. 

The Flashforge Foto 8.9 resin 3D printer printing speed is faster than a related product. The monochrome LCD display in the Foto enables it to print at a maximum speed of 60mm/h, 300% faster than its predecessors. The upgraded monoscreen allows greater air permeability, which eventually speeds up 3d printing. Take voxel standard resin, for example, Foto 8.9 prints at 17-25mm/h with 0.05mm layer thickness.

It has a larger build volume. The Flashforge Foto 8.9 resin 3D printer equips a build volume measuring 7.5in x 4.7in x 7.9in (192mm×120mm ×200mm). The Flashforge Foto is capable of printing larger props and tabletop figures, which can meet printing requirements for big and creative designs.

The Flashforge Foto 8.9 resin 3D printer adopts a new parallel UV lighting source. Foto 8.9 uses a 405nm-wavelength UV-integrated light source. This new parallel UV lighting source uniforms light distribution reduces heating and works stably with high performance. Combined with a 4K monoscreen, this lighting source helps ensure a higher printing success rate and finer details of printed 3d objects.

It uses a double Linear Rails z-axis system. Equips with double linear rails, wire rod motor, and nuts, the z-axis linear rails move steadily. This allows Foto 8.9 eliminates laver lines and riffles on final 3d prints and shows a smooth surface and delicate texture.

When you use this printer to print things, you can easily find it with sharp details and super precise. Features an Ultra High Definition 8.9-inch 4K LCD with 3840 x 2400 resolution, the Flashforge Foto has an XY resolution of 50 microns and layer height down to 25 microns for ultra-detailed prints. A combination of a dual linear rail and anti-backlash assembly makes the Foto even more reliable.

There are some special points. The Flashforge Foto 8.9 resin 3D printer adopts an effective heat dissipation system. Innovative airflow design ensures Foto 8.9 an optimal 3d printing environment, which helps increase 3d printing quality and extend the monoscreen’s service life. Additionally, it greatly reduces 3d printing machine maintenance costs, saving worry!

Last, I want to say that it supports two slicing software. Foto 8.9 works with CHITUBOX and Flashforge self-developed slicer FlashDLPrint. With its easy operation, 8x Anti-aliasing feature, and many more practical functions, Foto 8.9 empowers everyone, even 3d print beginners, to print 3 models with smooth edges and elegant looks.

This printer can apply in many aspects, such as garage kits, prototypes, arts, education, parts, and toys.

There are some reviews from the consumer.


The printer is great. Everything is iron and reliable. The print quality is fire, and the print speed is amazing. The printing area is also very large, and at a resolution of 4 K, the detailing is very good. I probably did not find any shortcomings in it at all. Of all the printers on webplatform, this is the best, according to the combination price/quality. The seller pleases with the excellent delivery, responsive and best price on all webplatform. This is the second such printer at this seller and I’m satisfied with everything. I highly recommend both the printer and the seller.
