The FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is housed in a solid and professional looking metal frame enclosure. The metal frame is robust and provides quality prints. Overall the FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is professionally manufactured. The heated print bed allows you to print with ABS, PLA and many other materials.
The fact that the FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is in an enclosure prevents the model printed with ABS from warping when the layers cool down unevenly. The print bed levelling is by means of three wing nuts. Levelling the bed is much easier now than on other models with four levelling points.
The firmware used for the FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is Sailfish. Both the extruders can be used at once. The power supply is built into the housing, so the power supply does not hang loose while transporting the printer.
Unboxing and assembling the FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro are straight forward and should not take you long. It is very similar to the Makerbot Replicator. Calibrating a 3D printer is an extremely important and needs to be done correctly and properly if you want your prints to be perfect.
3D printing is a learning curve that involves a lot of trial and error. My experience is that it works best to spray the bed with hair spray. Before printing, heat the bed for around 10 minutes so that the bed stabilizes before starting to print. Always use good quality filament from a reputable supplier. Some filament types are easier to work with and has less tendency to warp. ABS is one of the most difficult to use. Also make sure the filament is stored in a dry environment, as it will quickly attract moisture and make bubbles when printing.
Overall the FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is a great printer for beginners and is easy to use without too much difficulty.
