Made a quick tutorial on how to install a Creator Pro profile for Ultimaker Cura!
I couldn't find any videos out there so I thought it may help some people!
let me know if you want a video to dive deeper into the .json files that I used in this tutorial and what is inside them (and possibly how you can make one on your own for another printer that is not listed in the the Cura machine library).
Share this with your friends who have the Creator Pro, and if you couldn't figure it out, ask your questions in the comment section and the community will help!

Hi @AliRassi,

 

Welcome in here.

Thanks for sharing/making this video, -quite interesting.

I'm sure there is a lot of people in here that are interested in how to make the "fdmprinter.def.json" file!

This is an issue over and over in here.. 🙂

 

Thanks

Torgeir

    Hey Torgeir!

    yeah, I figured people might want that, as several folks asked for it in the FlashForge forum.

    I could find an article on Cura's GitHub where it says what should you do to make a custom profile, but not many videos are out there to walk you through it!

    will see if I get the chance to make another vid!😉

    I wrote the original version of the Creator Pro profile that Eugr based his off of (somewhat). 
    I also made an installer with winrarSFX

    I use mine because it doesn't use the confusing need to disable the other extruder to have a priming built into the start script. All you have to do is have skirt and cura will do the rest. 

    Here it is in use https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbhV-MhUkcw&feature=emb_title
