Definitely comparable to a Makerbot I’ve got 6 Makerbot Replicators (5 Dual, and 1 Single extruder). I needed another (I run a small business) and wanted to look into the Flash Forge as a possible alternative. My primary goal was to make sure I got a 3D printer that would still be compatible with the files I’ve already got exported for the other bots to use. I didn’t want to have to re-export all of my models, just for one bot to use.I’ll start out by saying that the Creator IS compatible with Makerbot’s 7.2 firmware, Makerware, and .X3G files. Totally and completely. Plugged it in through USB with Makerware up, and it registered it as a Makerbot. No hiccups or problems flashing the firmware. It all just worked.The machines are not identical, but they’re very close. The Creator is obviously based on The Replicator, and a lot of parts are the same, or very very similar. The Creator’s screen in the front is bigger, and brighter (it’s blue with white text) and if you’re lower than it, it’s…

Happy with this one Amazon suggests a shorter reply but if you are going to spend 1300 dollars on something you probably want to know as much as possible. So will do this in point form, overall it does deserve a 4-5 star rating with the difference being how much fiddling you are willing to put up with for me I’m tolerant and I like the tweaking so it gets a 5.Why I bought this printer:- Price for a printer with two extruders could not be beat.– at the date I purchased, I stopped looking after I ordered- Google groups showed some problems and company seemed to be addressing the issue as they came in a fair manner, and revising design- Similar to makerbot replicator, other post here highlighted the differencesWhy I almost didn’t buy this printer- Flashforge website is a bit of a mess seems there are two sites that link back and forth with one another- One report of a shipping problem (how would I deal with that kind of problem being 12…

Arrived in four and half days, very good quality. My third 3D printer. I have a cupcake, highly modified Thing-O-Matic and now this one. This is a clone of the MakerBot Replicator. I normally would not support a company that sold a copy of a product but since you can no longer get a Replicator from MakerBot this was the best alternative. I have no interest in the Replicator 2, I believe the original Replicator design to be a better printer.So I ordered this late Thursday night and it arrived at my doorstep on Tuesday morning via FedEx. It was very well packaged, no damage to anything.Here is all you need to do to get up and running;Switch the power supply to 115V.Attach the extruders using the two shortest silver screws found in the hardware bag. Attach the spool holders, put spools of filament on. Install the two black plastic filament guide tubes in the plastic clips found on the back of the machine.That is it for assembly. Do not forget to switch the power supply to…
