S3D with Flashforge Creator Pro 2?

Wed Jan 06, 2021 1:24 am

Hello, guys!
I've recently got a Creator Pro 2 and it seems to be an overall great printer, but the default FlashPrint software is quite dull. I'm pretty sure one can get more out of that printer with an advanced slicer.
So, the question is:
Has anybody experience with setting up Creator Pro 2 on S3D?
I've found a topic where somebody said that the S3D team can send a ready profile on demand.
But I also figured out that there's an issue with the .gx files that are used by Creator Pro 2. Something about that you can convert standard g-formats into .gx by some editing of the file.

So, can somebody share the actual experience please? Or at least say if it's possible to use S3D with Creator Pro 2 at all.

Thanks!

The Creator Pro 2 will accept .GX or .Gcode filetypes. Simplify3D produces .GCode when you utilize the Simplify3D FlashForge Creator Pro 2 profile.

Hi,

Same problem for me (and everyone with this printer). There is no entry for the 'flashforge creator 2 pro' in the the S3D profile list

Cheers
