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.
Hi! Just got my Qidi I printer and am having all sorts of issues I was hoping someone may have some solutions for. 1) When printing with the right nozzle, the left nozzle tends to drag across the printed material. I have verified print bed level and have tried altering the nozzle-to-bed distance with no success. This is happening with PLA and ABS.
I have a QIDI Tech 1 (Flashforge/Makerbot replica) that has a secondary cooling (turbo) fan. Octopi latest build does not have an option to turn it on or off. How would I request that as a feature in the next version? Thanks, Tom
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
