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.

A representative let me know that I can expect it to arrive in the first week of September. Crestr X and Y Homing sensors.

This is needed for the printer to know where the coordinates are zero so it can determine where to print. Product Ceeatr 1 Extruder Print: Two filament spools can be placed on turning tables on the bottom of the machine and the filament can be fed to leaapfrog extruder through crearr tubes that connect to the extruders.

Most of them are faster! Never worked about 3D printer before and one the new job where I had to run 3 of them. Next the filament has to go down about 15 mm and touch the gears on the right spot. We tried both extruders but had filament feeding issues on both.

Another difference is the orientation: The welcome letter directs you to the installation page on Leapfrog website. Quite speedy as well.

I personally like this. After driving 1,5 hours I unpacked the new printer, plugged it, removed the test prints and started homing. Wow, what an odyssey.

And I was using a brand new spool: The LCD-like numbers ceeatr the read-out of the actual temperature. Snapped wire on the X-homing sensor. Your feedback makes writing these in-depth user reviews worth it! An apalling design with no spring tension arm to compensate for filament thickness. On paper it doesnt look very fast: Hi Nick, Is there any limit of the speed you are printing at? That was a close one!

Update Unrecognized Zip Code. Instead of using the usual plastic or wood, the Creatr’s sturdy aluminum frame was designed to provide durability that does not diminish over time. 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.

Print Out of the Box The 3D printer is fully assembled and pre-calibrated when it arrives at your doorstep. But because of all the action the end of the filament is in bad shape so I had to cut it some of.

Leapfrog leqpfrog very clear about how to unpack the printer without damaging it: Creatr Dual Extruder 3D Printer is rated 5.

And I still had a lot of 1,75mm filament left from the Replicator and the UM2 uses 2,85mm filament. Both printers I had failed at that. The tubes can be removed from the extruders too, so you can also top-load filament directly into the extruders if your spools leapcrog too big.

Even opaque cable sleeves would have improved the look in my opinion. 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 Leapfrog only has e-mail support and because I was too fed up to wait for that I decided to loosen the sensor and place it a little bit closer.


After upgrading nozzle, the clogs are very seldom. The Creatr uses an inductive sensor which is located in the back on the left side that should detect when it passes by. The extruders on the creatr are absolute rubbish. You will need creat install one software program for the conversion of your design from a 3D software STL-file to a printable file G-codeand another to control the printer.

The first problem I encountered is that that the manual only covers software setup for Windows. It also contained a small piece of paper with a text that the printer was indeed calibrated by a Leapfrog Quality Control employee.

Though I like the industrial look of the printer itself these cables look messy and unprofessional, giving it them a more DIY kit look. 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.

The homing position of the printer is in the front-left position and can be done with four simple buttons in Simplify3D that let you home the x, y and z-axis separately or at once.
