Qidi Tech Simplify 3D startup script

by KludgeGuru

In Simplify 3D when you select the Flashforge Creator Pro profile the default startup script creates a blob of plastic on the right side of the build platform. If you replace the starting scripts with these it will extrude a line of plastic along the front of the build platform to make sure the extruder is properly primed.

See this thread on 3dprintboard forum for the scripts.

x axis stepper motor lock up

by zoltair

Hi guys

I was printing a simple part (78x78x78mm cube 8% infill pla) and at about layer 4 the x axis locked up. y and x were fine but trying to move either by hand or with jog mode would just rattle loudly. Powered off and on and the jog mode worked normally. I was printing tethered to my laptop at the time using s3d printing at 45mm/s. Any Ideas why that would happen? I did check heat on the stepper but it was the same as the others. Any help is appreciated

QIDI auto-bed levelling

by aubergine18

I've seen some reviews that say the QIDI Tech 1 has auto bed levelling - but I'm pretty sure they don't (they have the 3 adjustment screws under the bed). Am I missing something or are the reviews utterly wrong?

Also, is there a way to make it automatic?

Replacing motherboard

by boatanchors

I am going to replace the proprietary board in my TECH 1 with an MKS V1.4 running Marlin. If anyone has done this already, I’d appreciate your sharing the configuration.h file and any suggestions for success. TIA!
