Good, not perfect

Good printer for price, good capabilities (ABS, dual extrusion), but some flaws (squeaky bearings, wires for y axis motor wore out, aluminum bed warped eventually).

Flashforge creator dual

I bought mine in used but like new condition for  $400 Cad. It was a great deal for the price. Mine is the wood case version. I built a fully enclosed cabinet which helped tremendously to keep the sound down and heat in.

Acceptable Printer

Over a year using it, great with PLA, not so much with ABS unless you can built an enclosed chamber. Filament spools often fall from the spool holder tubes on the back. Over all, very good quality prints.

My creator is a workhorse.

I print ABS (small footprint items), PLA and TPU with this machine.  I have printed thousands of hours one it and it requires very little upkeep.

need to upgrade parts

Works great after upgrading all the plastic parts to metal and the software to sailfish, But the upgrades are getting harder to get now

This CP value is very high

1. This CP value is very high, the focus is that it is very quiet when printing, print jobs when you sleep no problem. 2. Finder has a touch panel, off-line printing, the operation is very simple, very suitable for beginners. 3. Can be pumping platform is very convenient 4. Slice program is simple and easy to set 5. Print quality is very good! My Finder 3D printer works the print process Http://mingshiuan.blogspot.com...

good product.

Easy to disassemble when needed. The surface of the plate is very good. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to manage the printer via the computer.

Great first 3D printer.

I bought this used as my first exposure to 3D printing and can not be happier with the results I have had for knowing nothing from the start. I have found plenty of information about this printer online which has aided with a few thing I had questions about. Overall I found it very easy to get this printing with few problems.

working around the clock

I have had 2 of these printers working around the clock so this is an extreme look at the printers.  For general 2 d printing with one head and various materials - great printer.  With the amount of printing done on these printers maintenance becomes important.  There is no simple way of aligning both print heads.  Both printers have become single head printers over time because of the alignment issue.  Both bed surfaces have worn out and have been replaced with a glass surface.   These printers have become work horses churning out parts for my classes 24-7.  The enclosed case keeps the temp constant and the prints consistent even when working in a 50 degree basement.

Bottom line - a great single head printer able to put out a consistent product using a variety of materials.  Minuses - the print bed material, the dual head alignment and software support.
