all printers has issues and will have issues from nozzle jam to extruder movement issues, and be sure that flashforge team is there with you.
now my review for the printer, I gave it 4 star rating and 1 star extra for flashforge support lets get to the pros and cons
1. sizable build volume with the price you pay.
2. 100 micron and can really go to 75 micron at slower speed no problem I tried it, and give good quality resolution
3. Flashprint software that come with it is great slicer, I my self love Simplify3d but the flashforge print is no less.
4. low price for a good quality printer good looking and ability to use all types of filaments to your heart contents.
5. active cooling system and heated bed and wireless connection, SD card print and USB port printing, easy to use menu.
6. bed leveling is easy, not automatic but as easy as it gets for such printers.
7. Dual extruder, although I find the use of dual extruder limited, but its an option, and this printer do it very will, other dula extruder printers you would pay double the price and many failed at it.
1. spool size and location inside the printer, it the worse feature of it but you can always overcome it by printing upgrades like I did or use external spool holder, flashforge filament is not bad at all but lacks the colors I like and there is much better quality of filaments if you have the money for it, also printing with exotic filaments such as laywood, laybrick, brass, copper, ...etc they have spool sizes that won't go to your printer, but the problem is solved if you have the patient and don't mind to print from outside
2. the plastic frame of the printer, I really not a fan of this plastic frame, creator pro and finder has a better quality frame, although this printer look good but come on the frame makes it cheap and I am always worried it melt from the heat although I know its unlikely.
3. the touch screen has an SD inside the printer some times it move out of place when it shipped, this happened to me and it renders the printer touch screen to be white and not work, I had to open the bottom cover and fix it, and now it work great but its not fun to open a new item you just bought to fix it, I wish this issue be solved in future versions of this printer.
here is links to spool upgrades that I love and helped me use 3rd party filaments:
1. [...] my favorite which I am currently using and its working great
2. [...] another great for PLA or ABS external spool holder my second best
3. [...] just a spool holder which is good really good holder idea
I hope my review helps and please comment for questions
this printer proven its worth, I have 5 printers and yet this one never gave me a clog or a problem its running like a charm attached pictures of my printers.
Ultimaker 2+ is $2500 running at same if not less as Flashforge dreamer.
I love this printer its good, look at the dual extruder quality!
The Dreamer took about a week as it came directly from China, and was in stock at the time. It's been four days since I've had it, and I've been practically non-stop printing. After reading horror stories about the initial trial and error with your first attempts (a 3D printer given), I was happy to have a perfect build on my second attempt. The documentation can be a bit fuzzy in spots (figuratively speaking), but a visit to youtube made things easier. Also, having to wait a week for delivery gave me that extra time to study up on all the possible issues I may run into. The unit comes a white ABS and a dark blue PLA filament reel, plus a tool box with some spare parts and a few tools which is nice bonus. Also included is a 4GB SD card and USB cable. You can hook up your Dreamer to your computer via USB or WiFi, then send your work to the printer. I've been putting my saves on the SD card and just feeding them directly to the printer. Also, if you need to make copies of one of your builds, you choose the SD card on the Dreamer's handy display panel, find the name of your item, and hit print!
Setup was pretty painless - took about 15 minutes. Leveling the plate is what was initially a lengthy process, but each time you do it, it gets easier. Now in two minutes, I'm able to level it, as opposed to the initial 20 minutes of paranoia. I started the first few builds with ABS. During my research, my two concerns were how much noise this would produce, and how bad the smell of heated plastic would be. As for ABS, it's not even close to what I expected. I was thinking it would be the equivalent of dumping an entire Mouse Trap game into a fireplace. There is definitely a fume in the air, however it seems to be somewhat become undetectable after spending hours in the same room. We have one of those essential oil diffusers nearby, which definitely helps. Keep in mind, someone who may be more sensitive to the fumes may feel differently. PLA is even less detectable, so no problem there. As for noise, I'm happy to report that it's a total non-issue. The fans are louder than the extruder riding along the rail, so no battles with the neighbors, even during graveyard runs.
The quality of the prints are better than I expected. I've seen some 3D Printer samples on various sites that had me concerned. Perhaps being zoomed in with a camera flash shows too many imperfections, but trust me when I say, the quality of these prints are quite satisfying, especially tor the price. Both PLA and ABS are wonderful, and have their pros and cons. We made two iPhone charge stands with both plastics, and they were equally impressive. The ABS had a matte finish, while the PLA seemed to have slight transparency and a bit of a sheen. The quality of the print will all depend on a number of factors including how fast you want results. We printed small articulated elephants that took only one hour and came out amazing. This was on a medium quality setting with 15% infill. while a super artsy nested gyro wheel thingy took 9 hours. The end result was worth it!
The one issue that you will learn to fear in the world of 3D Printing is stabilization of your work in progress. Without the right preparation, your masterpiece will be knocked off course, and churn out an angel hair pasta monster from hell instead. The heated bed is initially covered with Kapton tape, which at the beginning, held down the fort for a few ABS prints. I did not have the same luck with my first PLA attempt, as it dislodged from the bed, minutes into the print. I immediately hit the cancel button. There is a reason why Flashforge provides you with a generous roll of blue painter's tape. PLA likes painters tape. Just cover the Kapton and you're ready for some PLA prints, well sort of. I found using a glue stick (you'll see this recommended everywhere) to be one of your best friends s in the line of bed adhesion. Spread it across the blue tape, and man do those PLA builds become well behaved and come out perfect! I also started using it directly on the Kapton tape when it's time to go back to ABS, because the Kapton will wear and tear within days. Speaking of Kapton, if you don't want to keep having to buy more Kapton when the initial covering becomes really scary, you can do with many other 3D Printer owners have done, purchase a sheet of glass to clip to the bed. Getting glue stick gunk off of glass is a heck of a lot easier than Kapton.
The included software (Flashprint) is super easy to use,, but after day three, I took the plunge and purchased Simplify3D. This gives you a ton more control over your work, and has many important features. It's pricey, but it's worth it. Apparently, Flashforge's support for this system is top notch. I haven't needed any help yet (aside from asking on the whereabouts of my shipment while in transit), but I feel confident based on what I read. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my decision. As I hype this, the extruder is dancing around to a soft, mechanical melody, producing yet another eye popping plastic wonder.
1. Really nice to have an extruder fan and case fans on a dual extruder printer. This is incredibly important if you're trying to print PLA or Ninjaflex.
2. The touch interface is much easier to use and more aesthetically pleasing compared to many of the button-style menus other printers use.
3. Overall the printer is fairly compact.
4. It is able to print flexible filaments from the factory, no upgraded extrusion block necessary.
5. Not sure why, but programs seem to post/save quicker on the SD card for this printer from Simplify3D than it does on my other printers.
6. Printer seems to be stackable, but I haven't tried it myself.
7. After ~1000 hours of printing I had one extruder fan go out, and the customer support actually responded in only a couple hours, AND they sent me a new one the same day free of charge. With so many printer companies now charging for any type of support (looking at you Makerbot) this is a breath of fresh air.
1. The power supply is cooled by a fan so it's louder than many of the other printers in standby. While printing it's comparable in noise.
2. The internal spool holders work well for Flashforge's filament, but not well with other 'standard' filament spools. I ended up printing my own spool holders that replace the 'windows' on the sides. I'll post the thingiverse link as soon as it allows me to publish it.
