Okay let me start out with my origin of any error at all.  I have a flash forge creator pro 2016 model which worked perfectly up until my buddy did the microswiss hot end upgrade so we could attempt hotter temp filaments.  After completing the swap I got the ugly tool head 1 error.  I replaced the thermistor and heater tube and put back together.  No longer have a tool head 1 error, so far so good

FOR SALE!! Makerbot MightyBoard Rev H for the Replicator 2/2xThis board has been fully tested as working, drop in replacement. Note:  I have been getting some questions on these, if you have a Rev G board you CAN swap with a Rev H board, HOWEVER, the difference is the power connector.  The Rev G board has a female socket and the plug is a male, on the Rev H the socket is the male and the power ada
I have a problem with the first layer not adhering to the bed correctly. I typically use a brim, and it almost never lays down correctly. I thought it was a moisture problem with my filament, but I just cracked open a new roll and I'm still having the same issue. Unless I print a really large print, I can't get it to stick. I've releveled many times. 
Hello! I am a newb, I ordered a better printer on ebay but they sent me this CTC thing! so i agreed a discount. But basically i have had no luck getting the filament sticking, ive now added a glass bed, and using some hairspray to try make it stick, but here is what is happening.   im using RigidInk 1.75mm and Simplify3d, but i dont really know what setting to use!  
I have been trying to change filament mid print with no success. I am using Cura 3.2.1 and using the "stop at height" plug in. The printer will stop, i use the menu to unload filament, load filament, and resume. Upon resuming, the printer goes through the motions as if it was printing, but it doesn't actually extrude any filament. Any help would be appreciated.
3D benchy failed prints
Hello, nice to meet you all, I am new on this forum.  I bought a creatbot D600 last week, and I have a really hard time to make it work properly. I humbly require your help to resolve this mystery.  -The problem : As I do with every new printer I get, I try to print the 3Dbenchy , in PLA, with a 1.75 mm filament, and a 0.4 mm nozzle.
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 ?
