Original FlashForge Creator Pro Dual Extruder upgrade
King_Ambrose last edited by
So I am considering upgrading my FlashForge Creator Pro. It has all stock components except I upgraded to Swiss Micro hotends.
It prints fine now, but it’s loud and I would like to possibly have WiFi access and maybe move to using gcode instead of x3d files.
I have read through this foruM and while there is a ton of information - I am new to tinkering with upgrading this machine.
So I am asking - anyone who has done this can you give me a list of Parts I would need to upgrade (I have all stock motors and heaters and boards)
And how involved is the process to convert over - can I go to Marlin over sailfish?
Do I really have to get a new power supply as some suggest.
Or should I just leave it be and live with the noise.
It’s a good printer and my first. And would love to be able to use it more, but it’s really loud compared to my others and so I use it sparingly even though I get great prints.
Any help would be great -

I have converted my FFCP to DuetWifi, a few years ago (2017), and the results are great.
The printer is super quiet now, and overall the performance are great.
I love using the Duet, I think its the best upgrade you can make to a 3d printer.
I am using E3D Hemera extruder, but you can also use the original extruder.
Why do you consider to replace the original PSU? I am using the original MeanWell 350[W]
You can search the forum for posts about the converting FFCP to use DuetWifi.
here is one result:
