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

Hi, i also own a FF Creator 3 and S3D, and was wondering if S3D will support Mirror and Duplicate mode for IDEX printer? If yes how to do it and if no, will it be supported someday? Thanks.
