FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro – providing the ultimate user experience

 

The FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is yet another machine that has embraced the open source platform. It's a desktop 3D printer capable of printing ABS better than the models that preceded it. The Creator is the best 3D printer that FlashForge has produced and this current model is an enhanced version of that.

 

Design changes, both internal and external, were made for the FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro for it to provide users with only the best possible 3D printing experience. The current model comes in a rigid metal frame as well as a precise casting aviation heating bed. The heating bed now has greater flatness to it and its heat distribution is pretty even too.

 

Other changes that FlashForge made include 3-point calibration and high-quality dual extrusion technology (optimized for ABS and PLA). With this new design, higher levels of precision, ease of use and durability are achieved.

 

A closer look

 

With a price tag that is less than that of its predecessor and with enhanced features, the FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro surely is a machine that offers great value. That, plus the fact that the machine is designed using the open source platform gives users – hobbyist and DIYers – a great degree of creative freedom.

 

Features and Capabilities

 

  • Software options. The FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro uses different open source software such as ReplicatorG and MakerWare controlling software. These are used to control the MakerBot Replicator, Thing-O-Matic, CupCake CNC, RepRap and other CNC machines.

 

Another software option for the FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro is Simplify3D which is one of the most user-friendly applications available.

 

  • Metal frame construction. Now with a metal frame surrounding the print chamber, it's clear that the makers of the FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro improved upon the previous version. They have bid farewell to the wooden chassis and replaced it with a metal one to eliminate noise pollution, seal heat and reduce vibrations which affect the precision of the print heads.

 

  • Clear display. Through this feature, users can see the creation of objects from raw ABS or PLA plastic. The entire process is also observed under a soft blue LED light. With such a lighting feature, the printing process looks more professional and aesthetic.

 

  • Operating system compatibility. The FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux which should be a delight as it covers a range of users across different platforms.

 

  • Adequate print area. Measuring 320 x 467 x 381 mm in size, space isn't an issue when wanting to print prototypes, hobbyist items, copies of 3D computer models and replacement components with the FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro.

 

  • Print technology. The FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro is best used for ABS or PLA, two of the best thermoplastics available.

 

  • Dual-spool feeds. With this feature, the FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro is capable of producing high-quality 3D objects in a quick and efficient manner.

 

  • Print without PC. The FlashForge 3d Printer Creator Pro can print 3D objects without the aid of a computer thanks to an SD card slot.
