The Flashforge Creator Pro 3D Printer is based on the proven design of the previous Creator Pro chassis. The enclosed design allows you to print ABS or PLA efficiently. The upgraded three-point platform leveling system is intuitive. The heat resistant build platform support is made of durable metal and is less prone to deformation, which means more time printing. Additionally, a thicker Z-axis rod provides a more steady and precise movement.

Features

Sturdy metal frame is substantially more stable than the Creator's original wood frame
Warp-resistant 6.3mm aluminum build platform remains level under the stress of high heat
Heat-resistant metal platform supports replace plastic supports
Heavy-duty (10mm) z-axis guide rod ensures steady and precise movement
Acrylic cover encloses the chamber to insulate and protect ABS prints
LED light illuminates the build chamber
Improved performance of the integrated LCD screen and button board functions

    Creator Pro 3D Printer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. Few things to get used to but getting a glass bed, and using simplify3D software has made this an amazing product
    Date published: 2017-02-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Approaching 70 years old, I wasn't sure I could learn some complex gear �like a 3D printer and the software to drive it. �But a dozen or so hours after receiving the Creator Pro from B&H — the very first 3D printer I've ever had access to or used — I've made precision parts that fit the first time and look good. �The printer isn't perfect, but it's pretty close for me. � I'm using an easy (and free) 3D software package (Tinkercad) to begin a design with, that runs on the cloud and saves a file to disk (in the fairly universal SDI format). �I then load that SDI file into another piece of software (Simplify3D; not free, but low cost and worth it) to set various Creator Pro compatible setting, and to view the estimated build time on the Creator Pro and much more. �It can also combine several SDI files into one print session. �It then saves everything as one "gcode" file, to an SD card (or via USB cable to the printer, which I haven't tried yet). � This all might seem odd (using two different 3D apps to prepare a file to print with) but I kind of fell into that by experimenting, and it works for me. �YMMV. �And it's really fast to jump between the programs and the printer. �I tried several 3D apps and found Tinkercad to be the easiest for me, and great for setting precise dimensions in mm or inches for some parts I needed. �Simplify3D is great in it's own way too, especially for preparing to print on the Creator Pro. �I see that FrameForge itself promotes the use of Simplify3D (which can be used all by itself, of course, but again, I like Tinkercad to start with). In any case, I then eject the SD card I stored the gcode file from Simplify3D to, and insert that into the slot on the FlashForge Creator Pro, select the file name I just created and press "Print". �It takes a few minutes to heat up the plate and extruders and then just starts printing with no further input. I can now design and start printing, say, a simple box in about the time it took to write all the above. �Really, the turn around time is pretty fast and intuitive. �Of course, you may spend hours designing something, but �in the end the Frameforge Creator Pro seems up to the job. �Some of the pieces I've printed are pretty complex, and yet the dimensions of the printed piece were spot on, even in the fastest "low res" settings. Oh, and it even printed a small (5mm cube) recess into the SIDE of a larger part it was printing (where I needed to place a photosensor). �I.e. it had to print the roof of the recess "onto thin air" with no support underneath. �And it looks great with no sagging or other artifacts . �I actually watched it print that part, as I didn't think it could, and it just stretched the filament neatly and flatly between the existing side walls. Now some (minor) bad parts: �After following the reasonably good instructions to unpack the Creator Pro (shipped in typically very fast time from B&H) I did discover the front display panel non-operative. �Took off the bottom panel and found what I hoped — a loose cable. �Also, a plastic pin on the front clear panel broke off (clumsy me, I think, trying to open the panel too fast, for the first time). �But the magnets still hold it in place just fine. �Also, it's a bit noisy while printing, but not really that bad. �I usually stay in the same room and work on other things while it's running. �When I step into the next room and close the door, I can pretty much no longer hear it. Everything else about the Creator Pro printer itself seems just fine. �I've only used it for a few hours, but so far I'm very pleased. �The printer itself has a nice professional look to it, and is sure to impress all but the most jaded engineer or hobbiest. �And I think the price is very fair, all things considered. PS I'm a "mostly retired" software engineer, with no connection at all to B&H or FrameForge. �It's just that I've experienced my share of frustrating high tech tools over the decades, so wanted to call out this 3D printer as the well designed and implemented device it is.
