Product Highlights 1 Extruder Print: And I still had a lot of 1,75mm filament left from the Replicator and the UM2 uses 2,85mm filament. The first problem I encountered is that that the manual only covers software setup for Windows. Next the filament has to go down about 15 mm and touch the gears creatd the right spot. The Z-motor drives the lead screw in leapfog back and the motion is transferred to the other two through belts.

Leapfrog is very clear about how to unpack the printer without damaging it: Creatr Dual Extruder 3D Printer is rated 5. On paper it doesnt look very fast: On top of that the bunch of cables block the sightline from the right side picture below right making it even harder to get right. Unfortunately that is far from case with the Leapfrog Creatr 3D Printer:. More cteatr less because I still have to adjust the z-offset, but leapffog on that later: Please take a look at the list of 3D Printers I will be reviewing in the coming months.
I did look at the Ultimaker 2 too. In the end I was able to load both extruders with PLA filament. Quite speedy as well. No Longer Available Update Location close. I loved it when Leapfrog trashed their original forum with all the bad reports and customer anger on it!
One thing I know for sure now: It has this giant build area and you can print really large things and the software that drives it, Simplify 3D is really easy to use and includes a bed leveling wizard that makes calibration of the machine a snap Anywhere in between leads to different stop heights up to 4mm in my case.

The Creatr Dual Extruder 3D Printer from Leapfrog supports two-color and two-material printing up to a maximum size of 7. The good news is leapfrov they offered to let me use an original Creatr.
It was easy to setup and install after reading instructions on Support. See any errors on this page? As I wrote in my Rep 5 review creart printer had the same problem. After hitting the button the x-gantry moves to the front, hits the switch and slows down to get in place.
Wow, what an odyssey. As it stands, our unit needed some work to print well. And I was using a brand new spool: First the filament has to go into the cilinder on top of the extruder assembly.
This is a very precise job: And although the Creatr is a totally different printer with completely different ways of detection and filament transport, the issues are more or less the same. This takes one minute.
Leapfrog Creatr (not the HS yet) Review – Part 1: Installation
After driving 1,5 hours I unpacked the new printer, plugged it, removed the test prints and started homing. I struggled with my machine for two years before ripping the extruders off and turning it into a single extruder machine with a Bulldog and E3D hot end. The extruders creat the creatr are absolute rubbish. As you might have seen I placed the printer in the right corner of our work bench so I have to rotate the heavy printer to get a look at the right extruder.
I am really glad i had chosen ultimaker 3d printer. Luckily I picked mine up I live and work a 40 minute drive from Leapfrog HQ so I could leave the wooden crate there and creattr take the cardboard box with me in my car. Physically homing the X left to right and Y back to front axis is done with two switches located to the left of the x-gantry picture below left.
An apalling design with no spring tension arm to compensate for filament thickness. No printed manual is supplied with the printer.
But… the Creatr ships within 72 hours I could pick mine up within the hour and the Creatr HS is still a non-existing printer.
Out of the frying pan and into the fire! Both are available free of charge on the Leapfrog website. The LCD-like numbers are the read-out of the actual temperature. The heated glass print bed already contained a print sticker with a calibration print and a printed dual-color cone object. I clean off the lube and not xreatr if that was the cause.
