Creator X vs Replicator 2, plus Creator X Makerware Configuration I’ve had the Creator X for a month after having used a MakerBot Replicator 2 for a month. Overall, I’m happy and finding the printers comparable once you muck about with Makerware for a while. Below are 2 sections- first a comparison for purchasing decisions, then a guide on how I customized Makerware for Creator X.Replicator 2 vs Creator XDespite being a power suck, the Creator X heated build plate is a great improvement over the unheated Replicator 2 build plate. ABS requires a heated build plate, and even with PLA it makes prints come out much better. With Creator X I heat to 70 C for PLA and I still have the original Kapton tape after having printed about 100 times, making for perfectly smooth surfaces where the model touches the plate. With the Replicator 2 I had to replace the painter’s tape with nearly every print, the prints would still warp at any corner touching the tape, and the surfaces that touched the tape would be a bumpy mess.Replicator 2…

FlashForge Creator Pro for a Makerbot Replicator Owner TL;DR: the FlashForge Creator Pro is A Makerbot Replicator clone with all of the community enhancements “out-of-the-box.” The result is in some ways better than the replicator 2X, for about half the cost. What’s not to love?I have been a long time Makerbot Replicator owner, and I’ve been very happy with that printer. There’s a lot to like about the printer, and the support provided by Makerbot has been first-rate. It has been a workhorse, cranking out thousands of prints over the years. I really like the basic design of the printer, with the build area large enough to create interesting things, but not so deep that the printer takes up too much space. I really like having two extruders, both for flexibility of working with multi-material prints and for convenience such as being able to continue printing with one extruder when the other extruder needs maintenance, or leaving one extruder loaded with ABS and the other with PLA so that I can switch materials…

First foray into 3d printing After spending untold thousands on developing prototypes, my wife coming close to divorcing me, and a lineup of ideas and projects, I was looking for a more cost effective way to bring my ideas to life. I did a significant amount of research on 3d printing, but not an exhaustive search, as my main goal was finding something I could afford, but that had the ability to actually bring my crazy ideas to life. As I type this, one of those ideas is being built. I’ve posted some quick photos and a video to show the progress. So far it has been printing for about 3 hours and is coming along quite nicely. There is one minor issue that is a result of a learning curve in terms of settings, as I’ve learned that addressing things like plastic curling from the bed, stringy prints, etc., have more to do with material and environment, than anything related to the machine itself. I have to say that it took me a few tries to get to the point of printing the concept in the photos and video, and…
