    Problem printing with Flashforge adventurer 3
    by defpearlpilot
    My son did a lot of printing in quick succession as soon as he received his printer. After roughly 50 hours of printing, the printer stopped being able to pull the filament. We took some video to show the problem. We relaced the filament motor gear but that didn't solve the problem. Anyone have ideas on what to look at next? Thanks.

    Flashforge adventure 3 pro and Ultimaker Cura
    by Markla
    Good evening everyone, i recently bought a flashforge adventure 3 pro, i immediately noticed that the Flashprint software prints a very thick base platform and therefore consumes a lot of PLA unnecessarily.

    consulting the internet i learned that Ultimaker Cura is an excellent program with which to create Gcode from .stl files, so i opted for this solution, but from Cura i can't setup a profile dedicated to my Adventure 3 pro, because it isn't there, and it doesn't i can connect directly...

    Flashforge Inventor build plate coordinates issue - misses plate...
    by Sparkplugg
    Hi all,

    I'm a happy owner of an FF Inventor since a few weeks. I use TinkerCad and Flashprint with generally good results. I have not tweaked with general settngs. I am however lost regarding an offset, of sorts, for maximum prints - new spoolers.

    First picture ('corner') shows lower left corner of a maximum print of small boxes. As you can see, It prints 1-2 mm too far to the left. I can live with that, but assume it is configurable somewhere? The y axis is good.

    Flashforge Creator pro stops extruding white ABS mid-print
    by Pelican

    I'm pretty new to the forum but I've already experimented a bit with my 3d printer.
    I have a Flashforge Creator Pro (version 1) with which I successfully made several prints with black ABS filament. I assumed I was using the right extrudor temperature, bed temperature and other settings. I'm using a raft.

    Trouble arised when I switched to white ABS filament. I wanted to print the exact same model in white instead of black. Two prints went fine, but on the third...

    FlashForge Creater Pro 2 - Slicing Software?
    by babj615
    We all know FlashPrint is ok for finished projects, but very incapable when compared to other slicers like Cura, etc.

    Who here has a Creator Pro 2 and what Slicers are you using for your projects?

    Thank You!

    New Flashforge Dreamer clogged after one print (right nozzel)
    by BenFar
    Hello all,
    I'm new to the 3d printing so i apologize if i sound foolish. I purchased a Flashforge Dreamer and got it yesterday. I printed the test cube immediately and had no problems. Then i printed a batarang for my son. After this the machine stopped allowing the material through the right nozzel. Dont think it is clogged. It wont let be print with the left extruder. Very frustrating. Tried calling FF directly but went straight to voicemail that was full. Not expecting much help there....

    Flashforge Creator pro extrusion problem
    by windows__xp_
    Hi there! im kind of here as a last resort right now, i have a problem with my extruders that i just cannot fix. When it is printing (both extruders have this problem), no filament is coming out, and it makes an odd, i guess clicking sound, and when i hold the filament, it bounces slightly. This isnt a clog, as i have taken both extruders apart and gone through the unclogging process, and i can also push fillament through a heated nozzle manually. it also "prints" when filament loading....

    Hey all, I'm new to the forum, and came here because I couldn't find an answer to a problem I've got through google searching... Maybe I just don't know how to ask google the right question, or maybe its a simple problem most people don't need help with...

    Flashforge updated nozzle and other pieces?
    by Joymaker
    I went to the Flashforge store to buy replacement nozzles for my 3 year old Creator Pro. I find an "updated" nozzle and with it the statement that it also needs an aluminum tube, and maybe another part besides. I'm confused. Could someone give me a clear rundown on this whole "updated" nozzle business and what it requires, and what it buys me? And whether I would want to do this, compared to keeping on buying the original version?

    I noticed that the flashforge inventor doesn't have any settings for it. Is there any default setting? and which head should be used the left (cooled) or the right not cooled?

    Flashforge Dreamer Expansion to A4/320×220 bed
    by GrantB
    I got 4 Dreamers, 3 have logged over 2000 print hours, the other 2500 hours in the last several years..
    One build plate died a week ago, so I replaced it with a 320x220 rubber heat mat & glass plate, 3 printed feet to fix to the original mounting locations, the addition of a solid state relay to switch the 220v mat... hooked to the 24v bed output to switch the relay & a thermocouple under the mat.... and YAY a decent sized build platform now.

    I want to ask, Anyone know if Cura works with Flashforge Dreamer?
    If yes, is there a template for the printer that I can add to Cura?
    Because I didn't find Flashforge Dreamer in the list of printers in Cura.

    Flashforge Dreamer removable build surface.
    by +Christiane+
    Does anyone know a good removable surface for the flashforge dreamer?
    Is there something that is not thick and not expensive?
    I saw the Printinz removable surface but it is thick.
    The Buildtak flexible surface system is expensive.
    Is there something flexible, thin and not expensive?
    I searched for PEI but I found surfaces that stick to the buildplate.
    It doesn't have to be magnetic, I can add clips to hold the surface, right? Or the clips can melt?

    hi chaps, I have been printing with the XYZ printer for a year now, using Simplify3d to split the parts I print for models. Now I have been thinking of getting a new machine. my questions are

    2. will I be allowed to use or the controls within Simplify3d as at the moment they don't work, ie fan speeds ect, printing speeds

    Flashforge Finder and painters tape
    by Grandelius
    Hi! I got a Finder this weekend and love the machine so far. Much more reliable than my previous 3D printer experiences. But I have one problem. I try to use painters tape on the print bed, but no matter how many times I recalibrate the bed level, the nozzle just plows deep into the tape resulting in no filament getting extruded. I even tried the "calibrate extruder" function with paper as suggested in the manual, but that didn't help either.

    Is there anyone else who has had this...

    Flashforge does NOT honor their rebates!

    DO NOT BUY FLASHFORGE - I bought a Dreamer from B&H in December when they offered a rebate, and Flashforge has yet to fulfill it it 4 months later. Nor have they responded to my inquiries!

    Flashforge Finder vs Velleman Vertex K8400 printer.
    by Waldemar

    I'm thinking about investing in my first 3D printer, and I was looking for some advice on what to buy.

    I was looking at the Flashforge Finder, and it looks good, but my concern is that it has no support for heated bed, and is not able to print with Ninjaflex (or am I wrong there?). A good thing with the Finder is that it is more or less Plug-and-play.

    The Velleman one has support for dual head, and it is possible to add a heated bed on it, but looks...
