QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can this printer apply dissolvable filament?
Yes, no problem. The Flashprint software will build automatically the necessary structures and since the printer has 2 nozzles, you can build complex shapes. I don't say it's easy, you need to experiment a lot to become an expert.
Is the printer capable of producing accurate prints when inspected to cad file or a part print? ex. +/-.010 tolerances on holes etc..?
+/- .010 what? Inches or mm. In my experience nothing with tight tolerances works on the first try, I normally have to print a couple iterations to get it just right. After some practice you get a feel for it and can make it work for non-complicated tight tolerances. Much harder if you didn't design the part though.
Is the Dreamer an upgrade to the Creator Pro or a parallel offering for a different market segment?
It's a different product, the g-code is different, the firmware is different. I am not sure if it is aimed for a different market segment though.
I\'ve read that the creator pro has a print bed that is guaranteed not to warp. Does the dreamer make that same guarantee?
The dreamer is solid, I've levelled the bed once and we use it for many hours per week in a n engineering office.
Does the flashforge dreamer 3d printer come with a heated bed/plate for abs printing?
Yes. The bed is heated and it works very well. We have been printing ABS at 105C with great results.
Does this come with a drawing/image program to modify, merge, or import 3d scans be printed ?
The Dreamer comes with Flashprint. It's an easy to use slicer/printing program that gets better with every update. It has really good choices of supports. I also use Simplify 3D. It's not free, but allows greater control over the printing process and works much better for two color prints. For drawing and editing I usually use Google Sketchup. Its free, easy to learn, and there's a plug-in that allows you to export STL files needed for the slicer/print programs. There is also a suite of free programs under the 123D name from Auto Desk. These allow for design, editing, repair and even some photo scanning of 3d objects. I also use NetFabb Basic for editing, cutting, and repair of STL files - also free to use. The Dreamer is an easy to use, easy to learn 3D printer capable of some high quality prints. The first thing I printed was a spool holder that allowed me to use full 1kg spools from outside of the machine. Designed in Sketchup and printed with Flashprint.
