Flashforge Creator Pro – The Reliable Workhorse
The new Flashforge creator Pro is produced to be a reliable workhorse 3D printer. With an all steel frame to reduce vibration and noise pollution and dual fans it is both quiet and well cooled. Designed to be a compact desktop 3D printer and represents excellent value for money at it’s entry-level price point. Flashforge have strived for a clean industrial look and reliable good quality prints.
It has many features you won’t usually find at it’s price-point including a heated bed which is essential for printing material susceptible to warping like ABS. It also featured a dual-extruder head allowing you to print both object and support materials at the same time.
The build chamber is 320 x 467 x 381 mm making it a mid-range build capacity printer with enough capacity to build prototypes, hobby items and replacement parts and is suitable for printing both ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) and PLA (Polylactic acid), the two most commonly used plastic materials.
Like many 3D printers, the Flashforge Creator Pro does require some technical setup to get going but for the price it has many features comparable to much more expensive printers. Overall it is a solid, reliable workhorse 3D printer that will produce high-quality prints day-in-day-out.
This printer is a bargain given the dependability, simplicity, customer support, dual extruders, filament choices, heated assembly platform and build size. It’s a solid winner among consumer reviews and is rated as one of the best dual extruder 3d printers. You’ll see the features which may have made the FlashForge enormously popular will decrease quickly while other printers can be found for less. Be prepared to get way fewer critical characteristics in a cost even slightly below that of the Creator Pro.
