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. 
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'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.
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.
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.
Roof of antweight
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
