Qidi tech x direction does not stop when coming to the end, keeps running and I have to switch the machine off. Machine is now standing. Very urgent
I purchased a Qidi Tech 1 printer recently (I received an older model in the mail tho), and I have had nothing but issues printing. I am mainly trying to print Tabletop RPG figurines like DnD. Every single time I make a print, the figures usually come out with disfigured faces and look pretty bad.
As the topic says...
In our classroom we have been able to print some test files on these printers. We also used tinkercad to design our own projects and then with Cura we saved it as a gcode.
Hi, I recently bought myself a QIDI Tech dual extruder and I am currently having a couple of issues with my 1st 3d print which is a flat roof for my antweight robot. I am trying to print it in ABS plastic and I am using the QidiPrint splicing software but what I am getting are blobs, the nozzle going backwards and forwards which is running ontop of the print. I have to abandon
I was sitting by my printer whilst it had been printing for a while, all of a sudden it played a tune then stopped printing, this has happened twice now. The print has no errors and should have printed completely, it stopped about 75% of the way through the print, filament is ok... Any ideas or reasons? Is there anyway I can find out why?
This weekend I am intending to print a model that will span my cars rear windscreen. The model has been split into 10 connecting parts, below is a link to a typical section. https://i.imgur.com/SYfcSvt.png
Hi all, can somebody recommend and link good replacement nozzles and ptfe tubing for qidi tech 1? Besides the 2 nozzles and 2 ptfe from Amazon. My nozzle and tube got clogged. I pulled them apart and unclogged them but the ptfe tube is kind of sitting loose in the nozzle now. Thanks
When I first received my printer just before December the 25th (QIDITECH Dual Extruder), I was able to set-up and print two models which came out good. Since then I've had zero success, to keep things simple I'm trying to print just a very simple model to ensure the settings are correct and that the printer will work.
I use to think I was an intelligent chap, I've had this QIDITECH Dual Extruder for a couple of weeks now. I've managed to print a single good model. But everything else I've printed has either come out badly or had to be aborted. I've watched numerous videos on YouTube for setting up and levelling. I've also had advice from others with 3D printers which have helped some.
This has probably been asked over and over, but i'm really inexperienced i have designed a clip in auto cad and exported it as stl file, i have been trying all afternoon to work out how the hell i do the following. 1. Connect my Mac to the printer. 2.Print/Export the file to the printer ( i downloaded makerbot but does not appear to support the printer).
I've been working with Qidi Tech support for 2 weeks and we're going around in circles, so I hope someone here can help. This started with a simple clog that couldn't be fixed by simple efforts. So Qidi sent me a new nozzle piece. NOT so simple! It hasn't worked since. The filament loads through the extruder but the hole between the extruder and the nozzle don't line up so it clicks. Qidi ke
I have a QidiTech Dual Extruder printer, which I've had for a couple of weeks, it recently disappear from my iMAC. I want to use Qidi Printer which is based on Cura to print STL files, but it doesn't find my printer, although MakerBot can see it and print to it.
So I bought an X-Pro from amazon to replace my single extruder printer. This one has networking but it only works with qidi's own slicer. I took a bit of their code and created my own script to send gcode to the printer and start the prints remotely using simplify3d or whatever slicer you want. Its not written very well since I hate python and cant be bothered to clean up that code.
I have a QidiTech Dual Extruder which I've had for a couple of weeks not, I have the following filaments: ABS and PLA, both came with the printer and two reals of PETG, one black opaque and the other transparent. I've had some success with printing but generally I'm wasting a lot of filament. I'm not sure that the default settings are suitable for all the filaments.
Is there any way to make the print head move off the print when it switches extruders? It's not a huge deal but it sits for maybe ~1 second on top of what it just printed when it needs to switch extruders which leaves a little blob of print material. I'm using flexible PLA so I can't make it retract the filament which I assume is the normal solution to this problem.
I noticed recently that my X-One2 would make clicking noises while it prints things. Whenever I hear these clicks, the print also seems to fail. I found an older thread regarding a similar issue but they had issues with extrusion. In my case, it is just this odd clicking sound that corresponds to print failure.
My new Qidi x-one 2 has printed several items with no issue, however, on the last print, it quit dispensing filament. I have determined there are no clogs or jams, but the filament will not come out. A little will come out after heating, but nothing comes out during printing. It just goes through the motions of printing with no filament coming out. What else can I do?
Hi all, I am a new owner of the Qidi Tech X-one 2 printer and while I love the simplicity of printing with it, I am having some issues with the included build sticker. I have been reading about converting the build platform to use glass instead of the sticker. Can someone please let me know what I will need to start this upgrade. Thanks JP
I have a QIDI X one2. The software installed with no errors (Win 10 64bit - Intel graphics). When I try to run the QidiPrint software, I get this error: Could not probe open GL This program requires open GL 2.0 or higher. Please check your video car driver. I have verified that OpenGL 3.1 is installed and that I have the latest video card driver.
