Experience multi-material dual 3D printing with the Flashforge Creator 3 Pro. The Creator 3 is a sturdy and compact machine that makes a perfect candidate for producing functional parts and the Pro version has improved here upon with faster heating, higher maximum temperature and better bed leveling The machine offers 3D printing with a wide range of materials like PLA and ABS to industrial filaments.
The Flashforge Creator 3 Pro is a plug-and-play 3D printer that requires no assembly. With two extruders you can extrude simultaneously and work with 4 different printing modes. The first mode is called the Mirror mode where both extruders print the same object symmetrically. The Duplicate mode will have the extruders 3D print an identical object. With the Dual filament and Dual-color mode, you can mix two colors in the same material, for example, PLA filament. However, with the Dual filament printing mode, the second material can be a support filament like PVA filament for 3D models that have bridging and require extra structures.
A great feature of the machine is the print space that it offers. With a build volume of 300 x 250 x 200 mm you can create small to large multi-color and multi-material prints. Furthermore, you can also achieve a nice production and print several smaller parts at once with an exceptional level of dimensional accuracy. 3D models of all sizes can easily adhere to the build plate. Additionally, the build plate is flexible and therefore offers swift and clean part removal.
With the Creator 3, you can print professional 3D models with advanced filaments like nylon and carbon fiber. This means that you can achieve high production levels and industrial-level manufacturing right at home.

|3D printer properties|
The maximum volume what can be 3D printed with this machine. This normally is almost the size of the printbed times the height the head can be above the bed.
Independent Dual Extruders (IDEX) allow you to print two identical objects at the same time. Printer that support this have at least two extruder head that can move independently on one axis. Other printing modes that may be supported are mirrored printing and printing in multiple colors/materials
|Number of extruders||2|
|Nozzle diameter||0.4 mm|
|Filament diameter||1.75 mm|
|Hot-end type||Creator 3|
|Max. hot-end temperature||320 °C|
Bowden printers feed filament through a tube as opposed to Direct Drive systems. This adds important advantages (faster printing) and disadvantages (higher filament retraction settings). You can find more information on Direct Drive and Bowden systems, Click here

For most entry-level, smaller 3D printers this is a single threaded rod. For bigger machines the Z-axis moves with two rods, while 3D printers with a bed plate that moves in the Z-axis typically have three or four rods to move.
Bed movement direction
The direction the buildplate moves. Most printers move the build plate in the Y-axis direction. This is a simpler design, but gives problems at greater build height, because the inertia of the mass of the buildplate + 3D print impact the quality of the layers, requiring you to limit the speed. Other printers move in the Z-axis, allowing you to print faster without trading quality of the layer build-up.

A heated bed is important to reduce Warping and have a better adhesion of the 3D print to the print bed.
Auto Bed Leveling
The auto bed leveling feature will probe the buildplate on a few different points. This allows the 3D printer to detect deviations in the buildplate and adjust the print accordingly. This makes is much easier to start a print as you don't have to manually adjust the bed position.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a WIFI network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a Ethernet network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
This machine has an enclosure to protect the print or product from outside influences.
