Support not supporting the part printed

by Ledude1

So I've been trying to make sure that the part that I'm trying to print comes out nice and solid but it always ended the support looking so mangled and the part, of course, wasn't printed correctly. I've even increased the size of the support pillar to 4mm thinking that the bigger the support the better flashforge pro will print it. Guess again. Any advice on how I should set it up so that it prints out perfectly. I'm using the latest flashprint, with flashforge pro printer, ABS material, 235 nozzle temp, and 110 for platform temp. I'm so frustrated. Please help?

Simplify3D vs Flashprint?

by josh4675

Hey guys, I have a Flashforge Creator pro and I've been using flashprint with it for basically the whole time I've had the printer, but I'm thinking about upgrading to simplify3D. Is Simplify that much better than Flashprint, is it worth the $150 investment? I've heard the supports are much better in Simplify which is great, but is it truly more powerful and will give my printer the ability to print better?
Thanks everyone for your replies!

PRINT BED CREATOR PRO EXPOSED ELECTRICAL and WIRES

by SPICETRADERS

When I first bought the Creator Pro I notice two issues with the print bed. The first is the wires that hang down underneath. The second is the solder joints on the back of the bed for the heater and sensor connection.
I ignored the solder connections now for a while but after hitting them or touching them having materials come in contact with them. Add to that that I am looking at using conductive filaments. I felt it was time to fix the issue. Fortunately I had a roll of small size Kapton tape so that worry is an easy fix. And would suggest others do the same if they have not done so.

As for the wires supporting/protection that is a bit more issue. As they flex in the bed travel up and down they need to be covered with a easy flex material. I had read a post else where on some one having found them pinched. I want to use braided material like the extruder/nozzle uses but the connectors would require a larger size of tubing. I have rolls of the stuff covering from 1/8-1inch so can fit easy enough.
but I do not like the idea of excess material underneath, so I am thinking on A: removing and reinstalling the connectors or B: Finding an alternate method.

Has any one tried to protect the wires here. If so how and hows it working for you.

Flashforge Inventor Regular Maintenance

by jorginthesage

I've had my Inventor for almost a year and it's still running like a champ. My question is, should I be doing anything to keep it that way? Do any parts require lubrication? Should I be swapping anything out? I'm still on my original nozzles and my original blue tape. Lol.

Printer Issues

by FunkyPrints27

Hi, I have a creator pro and recently just got this "wave" issue when printing a new design. its simply a 0.1" thick rounded piece, with 0.05" radius on the ends. After the secondary piece of the model stopped printing, these waves started to appear in the rounded section and im unable to figure out why. If anyone has any thoughts on this that would be appriciated.

I am printing PLA, Solutech, 205 degree extruder, 70mm/s speed and 0.3mm layer thickness.
