Don’t let its wooden finish fool you. This is a serious printer that is stacked with unique features. Most notably is the dual extrusion system, heated print bed and wireless print connection. You will also find peaking put of it’s fibrous surface an interface display for monitoring the extruder temperature and changing filaments. This little wood box is worth checking out.
Dual extrusion is not generally a feature you find at the sub $1000 price point. FlashForge has done it, and they are selling the Creator 1 like hot cakes. It has been the 1# best selling printer, and has some beaming user reviews. It is a printer that is standing up to the competition. The heated print bed and wireless connection are also nothing to be sniffed at. Both features speak to this printer’s quality and user friendliness.
Unlike other 3d printer manufactures, FlashForge is rooted in the DYI experience and caters to those that wish to build or modify their own printers. You can buy all the parts and accessories you could possible want from their website. This is especially worth noting if you wish to take the hobby of 3d printing to another level. Heck maybe you want to add a third extruder onto this thing. Let us know when you do.
So if your are looking to experiment with an affordable dual extrusion printer and you have the maker spirit, the FlashForge Creator is for you, but If you are the kind of person that just can’t get over the wood case, I recommend grabbing a can of wood stain and some varnish and just going with it.
