When using a dual extrusion printer it is important to calibrate the distance between the nozzles in X and Y direction. A properly calibrated printer will produce parts without a visible shift between sections printed with the left and the right extruder. In this article I wil discuss the use of a calibration program to find the offset between the nozzles on the Flashforge Dreamer.
Flashforge supplies its printers with their own slicing program called Flashprint. It is compatible with the Flashforge Dreamer, Creator Pro, Finder and Guider 3D printers. The software is easy to use and contains most of the features required for everyday use. However, programs like Slic3r and Simplify3D offer more advanced options for situations where the standard settings do not deliver the desired print quality.
If you do not want to invest time in setting up or buying a different slicing program there is also a way to change quite a lot of advanced settings within Flashforge’s own Flashprint program. Continue reading “Flashprint advanced print settings by editing the default.cfg configuration file”
