I have the Qidi X-one2 & use Hatchbox PLA 1.75mm filament. When printing with the default settings, my prints often have lines or indentions streaked across where the nozzle leaves a line to head over to another area. I tried to alter the settings & enable retraction/z-hop among a few other tweaks & I get lots of stringing. With default settings, I had no cleanup, but lines...
When printer starts the priming line it goes about 2 inches before it starts extruding. From there it does the same basic thing when starting the skirt line. After that, everything prints fine. No setting in S3D that I have manipulated seems to make a difference. Wondering if anyone else has had this issue. Thanks
I have a QidiTech Dual Extruder 3d printer. I'm struggling to get the filament to adhere to the bed, as a result when I start a print the filament just builds up around the extruder and not on the bed.
I am *brand new* to 3d printing and setting up my first 3d printer. All was going swell until I got to the point to do my first test print.
I have two QIDI Tech 2 machines. The newest model will not lowwer platform after cancelling a print? The first one always lowers platform after cancel. They have the same versions of sailfish v7.8 but have different AtMega 2560 dates. I am afraid to try the update.cbd of the firmware since my first amchine works fine. Any help on this or updates.

I have a QidiTech Dual Extruder, I've printed successfully in the past, but at the moment I am having problems and I'm not really sure what the issue is.
I have a Qiditech Dual Extruder, the filament loaders that came with the printer were ok for the initial filaments I purchased, the spooler length is 69mm in length. I recently purchased more filaments and all of these are 1kg and require a longer spooler length as the width of each of these filament reals is closer to 79mm in length.
I have an X-One2. I am on Mac OS X, using the software provided. Have printed several PLA prints, works great. Just got a PETG spool, and I want to select that material in the software (which seems to be based on Cura). But in the software, when I browse materials, the "Activate" button is always disabled (for all materials). How to select a material?
I've been printing with this machine for about a year or so now and I've really enjoyed it, but I've felt that the quality and complexity of my prints has been held back by the older slicers that came on the SD card. A while back I tried using Cura as a slicer but ran into issues and resigned myself to my fate of using the most up to date version of MakerBot desktop.
Greetings, When I load a file to my QIDI X-one2, the file shows up red on the touch screen. What does this mean? Thanks!
Wow! I am new and I don't have all the terminology down yet but I am going to try. I recently bought the Qidi and for the first month it worked great, but all of a sudden the left nozzle has stopped keeping the filiment hot. It brings it up to temp, but as soon as it starts to print it begins to cool down. I sit there and watch it as it does this. What is going on? I tried searching through
I've spent considerable time in Fusion 360 working with the scanned model of my own head. I'm happy that the model is the correct scale. When I export to STL and then open in QidiPrint it doesn't use the same scaling in fact the scale is nothing like the scale in Fusion 360. Why is this? Is there anyway to use the same scaling of the object in Fusion 360 thats exported to the STL ?
I got a QIDI x-one2 as my first 3d printer back in February, but I haven't come across a forum with any owners that can help me with some of my issues, so I came here in hopes of getting some help : ).
On my Qidi Tech 1 printer the Y axis broke and I had to replace the plastic part. Now I need to reconnect the belts. I can't find any instruction to connect them. Can anyone give me some instructions?
I'm trying to use ABS filament, the problem is that in most cases the print starts to lift off the bed before it completes printing. The temperatures I'm using are: For extrude 270, for bed 100. I've tried other temperatures on the bed going down to 60 degrees, but its no better...I'm now trying going up, starting at 110.
I created a model with Zbrush 1 million polygons, minimum. can QIDI X-pro handle it, without reducing the polygon count.
I've got many parts that need to fit together with very little margin for error and For the most part things work until I get into a very finely detailed items that are extremely small and if the male female part is even .1 mm off it will not fit together without drilling out the hole larger.
Hello, I recently decided to purchase a Qidi X-Smart printer along with simplify 3d. So far I have had it for about a week and a half and have printed almost nothing but failed prints. All of my prints come out incredibly stringy and lackluster no matter how high I set the retraction distance, Retraction speed, XYZ speed or lower the temperature.
Not sure what is the issue here, smaller objects do not have this problem. Same model with PLA also no issues. Filament: Hatchbox ABS Temp: 230 Nozzle, 120 Bed Fan: 0ff Pinter: Qiditech 1 (enclosed), right nozzle only Bed: Glass w/hairspray Brim: Yes
Good afternoon all. I have a Qidi Tech 1 and have been using makerware since I bought the printer this past October. I finally caved in, and purchased simplify3d. Once I get my model ready to slice, and try copying it to a sd card, an error pops up saying “gpx plugin error; did not copy file”. I’m using Windows 10 on an hp laptop. I have no clue on how to resolve this issue.
