  • More about the Flashforge Creator Pro 2

    I've been spending a lot of time with this printer and learned the following.

    - I have my doubts about the Z offset setting video on the front panel. I found I have to manually level the bed, and set it quite close to the nozzle, for my prints to stick without a raft.

    - I replaced the bed surface with BuildTak and it really made no difference.

    - I tried to use various Github-provided solutions to get Cura to work with this printer with no success so far.

    - FlashPrint seems to have a bug that if your print has a height of less than 2mm the top surface is not properly finished. It is left very rough.

    - Print quality on details greater than about 3 mm is quite good but the print quality on small lettering is terrible. This might be the slicer, time will tell.

    - The email support from Frlashforge is quite timely. Basically 24 hours turnaround but they might be using a computer translator since the English exchange is not great.

    - Trying a detailed print at a .10 layer height now to see if this helps.

    - Tried variable layer heights in FlashPrint and found it tricky to set up.

    I will report more info here as I learn it.
