By Laird A. Popkin on August 15, 2014
TL;DR: the FlashForge Creator Pro is A Makerbot Replicator clone with all of the community enhancements "out-of-the-box." The result is in some ways better than the replicator 2X, for about half the cost. What's not to love?

I have been a long time Makerbot Replicator owner, and I've been very happy with that printer. There's a lot to like about the printer, and the support provided by Makerbot has been first-rate. It has been a workhorse, cranking out thousands of prints over the years. I really like the basic design of the printer, with the build area large enough to create interesting things, but not so deep that the printer takes up too much space. I really like having two extruders, both for flexibility of working with multi-material prints and for convenience such as being able to continue printing with one extruder when the other extruder needs maintenance, or leaving one extruder loaded with ABS and the other with PLA so that I can switch materials effortlessly. And with the heated print bed, I've been able to print with ABS, PLA, Nylon and all sorts of other crazy materials (wood, flex, bronze, etc.). But perhaps most importantly, the user community for Makerbot printers is amazing, so whenever there are was something about the design that needed improving, the community jumped in and came up with improved extruders, metal print platform arms, and even the amazing Sailfish firmware. In many ways the community really made the Replicator the wonderful printer that I've been using all these years.

But my old printer is getting a little long in the tooth, so I wanted to buy a new printer to supplement it.

After spending untold thousands on developing prototypes, my wife coming close to divorcing me, and a lineup of ideas and projects, I was looking for a more cost effective way to bring my ideas to life. I did a significant amount of research on 3d printing, but not an exhaustive search, as my main goal was finding something I could afford, but that had the ability to actually bring my crazy ideas to life. As I type this, one of those ideas is being built. I've posted some quick photos and a video to show the progress. So far it has been printing for about 3 hours and is coming along quite nicely. There is one minor issue that is a result of a learning curve in terms of settings, as I've learned that addressing things like plastic curling from the bed, stringy prints, etc., have more to do with material and environment, than anything related to the machine itself. I have to say that it took me a few tries to get to the point of printing the concept in the photos and video, and there are still some more settings I need to work out, but the product has been superb thus far.

But let me start with my general experience with FlashForge, Tang and his team.

First of all, I originally order the first version of this Creator. http://www.amazon.com/FlashForge-Printer-Extruder-Compatible-Volume/dp/B008CM2TCU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394165975&sr=8-1&keywords=flashforge Luckily, I ordered it late on a Friday night, and the very next day FlashForge released the Creator X. I canceled my original order with Amazon, thought about it for a day, then ordered the Creator X as a "Pre-Order" item, because the printer was just posted and was stated to be shipping in March, this was February 11th, 2014.

I've had the Creator X for a month after having used a MakerBot Replicator 2 for a month. Overall, I'm happy and finding the printers comparable once you muck about with Makerware for a while. Below are 2 sections- first a comparison for purchasing decisions, then a guide on how I customized Makerware for Creator X.

Replicator 2 vs Creator X
Despite being a power suck, the Creator X heated build plate is a great improvement over the unheated Replicator 2 build plate. ABS requires a heated build plate, and even with PLA it makes prints come out much better. With Creator X I heat to 70 C for PLA and I still have the original Kapton tape after having printed about 100 times, making for perfectly smooth surfaces where the model touches the plate. With the Replicator 2 I had to replace the painter's tape with nearly every print, the prints would still warp at any corner touching the tape, and the surfaces that touched the tape would be a bumpy mess.

Replicator 2 has one print head, Creator X has two. I'm not crazy about that trade off, maybe because I'm using this for injection mold prototyping and don't care about dual color prints. The second print head adds weight and can knock against built layers, requiring slower print speeds and making it harder to print arrays of pieces. It's nice to have for quick color swapping and as a backup in case there's a break in one print head, but on balance I would rather it wasn't there. That's a sad thing to say about a feature that costs a good deal of money.

In terms of print quality, I'm finding the Replicator 2 was better at 45 degree overhangs and 90 degree corners. The Creator X seems to curl up corner layers and sag the overhangs, even after I mucked endlessly with Makerware settings.
