3d printing takes much trial and error. Different filaments, different temp settings, different slicing software, etc etc. FFCP takes a lot of that out of the equation.
1. Buy Simplify 3d
2. Start with PLA. ABS can be very difficult to master and the benefits are few over PLA
3. Use Hatchbox filaments. This is very important. Heat bed to 60 deg, and use 205 for filament. Buy it here from Amazon. Wait for Prime stocks so you don't over pay.
4. 3d prints of high quality take a long time to print. Avg 6 hrs. However, once you see a HQ 3d print, you will never want to use anything else. Bottom line: patience.
5. Level the bed very well before you print. I cannot stress this enough. LEVEL LEVEL LEVEL !
6. Make sure the first things you print are a filament feeder and a bigger spool feeder. Go on Thingverse for STL plans. You will these before you do anything else.
7. You will almost never use the dual extruders. The only benefit is that you can use two filaments of different types ready to go.
8. Always unload the extruder if you are not going to use the printer for more than a week.
9. Keep the door and top cover on when printing. Heat retention is your friend.
10. Experiment with your slicing settings. Don't accept default values. They are typically the wrong ones for your printer.
11. Try to print things vertically. Vertical printing is always more accuarte. Even if some instruction states to print something flat, always flip it vertically.
12. After you get some time on the stock nozzles, upgrade to some micro swiss nozzles. Huge difference. Do not go full metal. It's not needed and it will screw up you temperatures.
13. The blue stock print surface works great. Don't listen to all the idiot's out there that recomend all kinds of other stuff, glass, PEI, Kapton, etc. The key is keeping your surface clean. Clean with denatured alcohol after each print. Let dry. Always use a raft. I don't care what they say about not using one. ALWAYS USE A RAFT !. When it's truly not sticking anymore replace with a new one. I get about 20 prints before I need to replace.
14. Always preheat. That is so important. Both bed and extruder.
OK so here are some cons:
1. Nozzles will need to be replaced at some point.
2. The two nozzles are more than likely NOT at the same height. What this means is that one may "knock" into the other "structures" when printing and ruin the print. The solution here is either remove extruders and rebalance the nozzles or remove the nozzle of the extruder you dont use. Either solution is simple, about 10 min total time.
3. Balancing the table takes several attempts. I use feeler guages. They are more accurate.
4. Loading and unloading the filament becomes a chore, but it's something that needs to be done.
5. The table is actually small, as your appetite for bigger projects grows. You will have to get creative wit layouts.
6. The cooling could be improved. Several mods are available online.
7. Do not use the provided spools. The quality is very low and it has led to numerous clogs. Use Hatchbox for both PLA and ABS.
Overall I love this printer. Yes, some things could be improved but the only 3d printer I would consider to be better than this one is the makergear m2. I also own that one. It's very good but also twice the price. I still find myself using the flashforge over the m2 more often than not. The m2 is great for bigger projects. I would recommend the Creator pro 2016 to anyone starting or wanting a more reliable 3d printer. Don't waste your money and time on anything else.
I love this machine.
After posting my earlier review (below), I noticed that the front and back plastic panels are cracking, mainly around the foot. The plastic seems thin around the plastic feet, and apparently the weight and vibration caused them to fail. I contacted the Amazon seller representative, and he tried to locate replacement parts from the manufacturer that I could buy (since it is out of warranty), but he found out the panels for my version of the printer (from Dec 2016) are no longer available. If yours is out of warranty, to avoid this issue from getting worse you might want to consider removing the plastic oval foot inserts. (You need to remove the panels and slide them out.) This will allow the printer to rest on a larger surface at the corners. I tried to glue the cracks and remove the feet, hopefully it won't be an issue longer term. Still a very good printer, but design of plastic case, particularly around the feet, is too weak for the weight of it all. I guess this is a tradeoff for having a very sturdy steel frame and rack, so I'm willing to live with it. The seller Tang's service is always great, but it's too bad the manufacturer can't supply the parts.
ORIGINAL (Jan 9 2018) Review starts here :
There are plenty of other 5 star reviews here already, but here's my experience with the FFCP. I received mine in Dec 2016, I have used it now for over 1 year (as of Jan 2018) and thousands of printing hours so far. Had 1 minor mechanical problem during the year, a stepper cable failed, mfg tech support Mr. Tang identified the problem and sent me a replacement. Very responsive tech support. I actually didn't need to ask for much help from Mr. Tang as I learned to use the printer because there are plenty of youtube videos and forums to help you along the way. The FFCP is a very popular platform so help is not far.
My advice to anyone new to 3D printing -- There is a learning curve to using any 3d printer, but if you are willing to experiment and occasionally fail (particularly in your first few attempts at printing something other than the test traffic cone), the FFCP is a great platform.
You will get clogs and other issues, and you might need to diagnose and take apart a few small parts in the print head or heater block to get it back in working order again, but after you do this a couple times it becomes a routine and simple procedure to diagnose and unclog the nozzle or feeder.
My setup -- I print PLA (mostly), sometimes PETG, and (less frequently) ABS on to gluestick on glass (I prefer glass vs. the blue print sheets). Makergeeks.com filaments. Simplify3D software running on a Mac. Remote access via Octoprint running on a raspberry pi connected to the FFCP.
My printer odometer reads 3135 hours with 5800 meters of filament printed (that's 3.6 miles)! Only 1 minor problem as I mentioned. I think my longest print took about 22 hours, but I have done dozens of prints longer than 12 hours with no problems.
Best of luck.
