3D Hubs Review of the FlashForge Creator Pro 3D Printer

FlashForge Creator Pro 3D Printer

The Flashforge Creator Pro is a step up from the original Flashforge Creator and can be best described as solid. The Creator Pro runs very similar to the entry level Flashforge Creator, but comes with a metal frame and enclosed chassis. Other new features include the upgraded platform leveling system and metal build plate and guide rod to help with stabilization and durability.

Current owners unanimously describe their Creator Pros as the “Absolutely best value for money”. It offers a great balance between ease of use and complexity. First, it’s easy to setup and printing with it is almost plug ‘n’ play. It is considered a very reliable and consistent printer with good precision and countless possibilities. The Creator Pro can be “tuned to various print situations” and it can print a whole range of experimental materials. The $1350 price tag is also a major selling point – especially when you consider that the Flashforge Creator Pro’s 9.5 rating on print quality beats many 3D Printers that have a price point over $2000.

The only common complaint is that the printer runs a bit loud, therefore it’s not the best choice for home or office use. Build volume is average and the Creator Pro has some quirks that require fine tuning and tinkering to work out in order to live up to its full potential.

The Flashforge Creator Pro is an excellent choice for a beginner or even an advanced user on a budget, 93% of the current owners would recommend it. At $1350, its hard to beat its value considering all the built-in features. As an added bonus, it ships surprisingly quick and the customer service is top notch.
