Features

  • FlashForge Creator Pro
  • 225 x 145 x 150 mm print volume (less with dual extrusion?)
  • Dual extruder
  • 1.75mm filament

Usage

Creator Pro uses different toolchain than the rest of the printers in the lab, because Makerbot. Fortunately it is still possible to use open-source toolchain based on Slic3r

Detailed instructions are here -- http://data.flamy.ca/printer_config/doc/cretor_pro_config.html

Slic3r Settings

It is still possible to use cura, just edit and save your models with STL, then load them into Slic3r and print
