OMG I could kiss you.  That was it!  I wasn't putting the bolts through into the stepper motors.  Something so simple took 2 weeks to figure out.  What an idiot!  I am so irritated that I didn't see that simple thing.  Once I re-assembled it once again on top of the printer and made sure the bolt screwed into the motor, things lined up and it printed.  You are a life saver!

I had a thought that I want to confirm before I try it and mess up anything else.  No matter how hard I try I can't get the left and right filament feeder assemblies into place at the same time.  Someone on here mentioned the wires.  I think it may be the wires, but there's no where else for those to go.  Unless... unless I put it back together incorrectly.  Maybe in all of the fuss, Qidi just didn't notice?  When I put the hot plate on again, I strung the wires up in between the hot plate and the plastic base that runs along the track, instead of behind the plate.  If I run the wires behind the track, the wires would be out of the way, but may be in the way of printing.  Can you confirm or deny which is right?  Does that even make sense?

It's flush against the inner sides but not the outer sides and I can't seem to figure out why it won't lay flat.  It used to be flat.

I can get that gap closed up on only one side at a time.  I made sure the wires are out of the way but when I push the second extruder flush, it moves the original one back just a hair and it's no longer flush.  OMG this is frustrating.  There's also a gap between the two extruders and the middle long screws that run from the top plastic plate between and goes between them, if that makes sense.  I can't get those two flush either.

Thanks for the reply.  The filament is the one that came with the printer and is almost gone.  It's 1.75.  I tried your fix with no luck.

This shows you how the hole on the extruder and the hole on the nozzle don't even come close to lining up.  I can't get them to line up either.

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

First time printing I decided to try out the ABS that came with the printer.  I set the platform temperature at 110c, which is what it suggested.  When it was heating up, the blue platform cover came off completely, starting at the edges by curling up.  Is that normal??
