Flashforge Creator 3 and Simplify 3D New User?

Sun Aug 23, 2020 2:20 pm

Hi,

I would like to know if Simplify 3d will work with my Creator 3 and will it be fully supported?

Will simplify 3d also do a duel idex print??

Hope you can let me know please.

Cheers

I know Simplify3D received a machine for testing and they can probably send you a profile.

Thanks for forwarding Booner to that applicable thread. Our software now includes a profile for the FlashForge Creator 3. You can select it at first launch of Simplify3D or open the configuration assistant another time using Help > Configuration Assistant.

S3D does work for the Creator 3.
I havent had many issues. I did run into an issue with S3D that the left and right nozzle alignment was incorrect, but after adjusting the tool 1 on the x axis by -1.78 mm, i did have this resolved.
Also, an additional issue i am noticing is that if the print is paused, the print is no longer alligned. This will be off by 0.85 mm. I am still trying to figure this out.
In S3D, you can not do mirror mode or duplicate mode right away.
There is, on the other hand, a profile available that allows you do do so for Flashforge Creator 3.
It is available here somewhere, but will also add it to this topic. It only does duplicate. I hope im adding the proper file
