The communication and delivery timing from 3D Printer Vault was great. I'd definite recommend them to my friends. I've been using the printer for about 2 weeks and am very happy. I'm using Simply 3D for the slicing software and there is a little experimentation to get the parameters dialed in for the filament you are using. But once that is set, it runs great.
We've been using the Flashforge Creator 3 for about 2 months. The 300˚C nozzle an amazing upgrade from previous versions of Flashforge 3D Printers. Can easily print with Nylon and other high temp materials without worrying about cutoffs and clogs. Whenever the filaments finished and ran out of the filament detector, the print would pause and alert us to load more materials. Added filiment and resumed printing with no problem.
Got a great price and are very happy with this printer.
