The FlashForge Creator Pro is optimized for ABS, while continuing to excel with PLA. Maximum resolution is 0.1 mm (100 microns). This 3D Printer has a metal body, dual-extruder, acrylic hood and heated bed. Build size 8.9 x 5.9 x 5.7 inches. Includes (2) spools of ABS filament.
Note: if you're new to 3D Printing, take a look at our early 3D Universe-produced training videos. Also download for free our Unofficial Creator Manual. 95% of the material written for the Creator X applies to the Pro.
The metal-bodied Creator Pro comes with numerous upgrades over the earlier Creator models. A removable, top-mounted hood enables full enclosure, thus protecting ABS print jobs. The three-point platform leveling system is more intuitive than the original four-point platform. The build platform is now made from aviation grade aluminum and platform supports are metal, as well. Finally, a thicker Z-axis rod provides increased precision of vertical movement.
Print jobs can be run from an SD card or directly through USB cable. A built-in LCD screen provides an user-friendly interface for manually controlling print jobs and machine settings. The Creator works with Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
