The FlashForge brand has been a staple in the 3D Printing industry for the last few years, offering users fantastic printing quality and reliability at an affordable price. Since the highly popular original model, FlashForge have added many upgrades and improvements to make what was a fantastic 3D printer even better! With the new Creator Pro, FlashForge aimed to take precision and quality to a new level, with more features, improved user friendly design and even better print quality!
The FlashForge Creator Pro has a build volume of 225 x 145 x 150 mm (Length x Depth x Height), a perfect size for prototyping, education and unleashing creativity!
The Creator Pro comes equipped with FlashForges proprietary Dual-Extruder structure expanding the possibilities of 3D Printing. With dual extrusion you can print your models in dual colour or take advantage of Dual Extrusion technology to print your supports with a dedicated material like Polymakers PolySupport, which makes support material removal easier than ever.
Sturdy and Precision Built!
The Creator Pro was designed to offer excellent precision with professional quality. The sturdy metal frame reduces vibration during printing and the metal support and 10mm Z-axis guide rods work together to increase precision of vertical movement.
The build plate is made from 6.3mm thickness alloy Aluminum – the same grade used in the aerospace industry. The heated bed provides excellent heat distribution
All major parts such as motors and the power supply are from the world’s top suppliers with all metal and plastic parts molded. To provide the reliable and sturdy Creator Pro, FlashForge set rigorous standards for their assembly line, ensuring each machine is tested over 48 hours for top quality.
Versatile Printing and Open Filament System
The FlashForge Creator pro has an Open Filament System allowing you to try your own choice of 3D Printing materials. Different types of 3D Printing materials have their own optimal printing conditions. Higher temperature materials like ABS have a tendency to warp when cooled too quickly, while PLA materials curl and droop if printed too hot. FlashForge took advantage of their Dual Extrusion system to provide a 3D Printer capable of printing a large variety of material types.
Each extruder have been optimised to offer high quality printing. The left extruder is equipped with a cooling fan, providing adequate cooling when printing lower temp materials like flexible and PLA. The right extruder has been designed to provide optimal printing for higher temp materials like ABS and PolyCarbonate.
The Creator Pros enclosed design protects your prints from external environmental effects and drafts during printing. For higher temperature materials attach the removable lid to the top of the Creator Pro, the enclosure keeps your models nice and toasty, perfect for PolyCarbonate and ABS printing.
FlashPrint and 3rd Party Slicer Compatibility
With the FlashForge Creator Pro you are able to choose your favorite software such as FlashPrint, Simplify3D, Cura and more.
FlashForges own FlashPrint software is very easy to use so you can start printing right away! FlashPrint was designed with a simple and intuitive interface that makes 3D Printing easy for beginners whilst giving expert users access to more advanced control over the printer. Generating support material with FlashPrint is easy. FlashPrint automatically generates supports for you based on the models overhang angles. You can also add your own supports to suit your model or remove unnecessary ones to save material. FlashForges Dendriform (treelike) supports allow you to print much more complex models, snapping off supports easily without damaging your objects.
Beginners can use FlashPrints presets and allow FlashPrint to take care of the rest and experts can access a wide range of paramaters like nozzle and bed temperature, printing speed, first layer thickness and height where to pause printing. Once sliced, FlashPrint provides layer-by-layer visualization, time and material estimates.
You can start your print job, pause, cancel, start assisted bed leveling, preheat the bed, load and unload filament right from the printer with the Creator Pros LCD screen display and control buttons. The Creator Pro can read STL files from an SD card, allowing you to print untethered from your computer. There is also a USB connector on the back to update your printers firmware.
