This is an overall great printer that can produce really great, high quality parts. Sadly, this printer is less modifiable and not as well known as prusa i3 designs. It is also a great dual extrusion printer although I haven't done much with this feature. The settings on the printer from the box are ok, but download Replicator G on a laptop and change acceleration and jerk settings.
Unbelievably reliable 3D Printer, I have had four machines, two of which reached over 5000 hours without mechanical failure and are still going strong. Somewhat expensive and difficult to work on or find parts if things do need to be worked on.
I got my Creator Pro over two years ago and think it's one of the best printers you can get today. The only thing the new versions have is a weaker frame and a touch screen. The duel extruders opens up the printer for a wide variety of color and material combinations on parts. I've been able to do three and four color prints and even TPU and PLA or PET on the same part. The printer uses a direct drive for the filament which is best for TPU and softer filaments. The stock configuration will accomplish most things and is open to some modifications and upgrades. The only downside of the printer is its limited build volume and the stock extruders. The build volume can really limit its capability and there is almost nothing to change that. On the other hand there are a lot of options for fixing the extruders. I switched mine out with an all metal kit allowing the extruder to go up to 300C instead of the stock 240C allowing for nylon and PC filament. I've even seen some people online have even switched over to bowden filament systems on their printers.
Upgraded from the outside in, Creator Pro is a very reliable 3D printer with excellent precision and professional quality. The sturdy metal frame increases stability of the printer’s moving parts. Metal platform support and 10mm Z-axis guide rods allow for precise movement of the z-axis. The build plate is made from 6.3mm thickness alloy of Aluminum —the same grade used in the aerospace industry, excellent heat distribution and never deformed. The versatile chamber provides different printing environment for different materials. As a result, precise and top-tier print quality shows up.
