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.

Qidi Tech One: Stepping Motor (Feeder) shorted ... replacement?

by Strlehk

I looked everywhere to find the exact stepper motor that is used from OEM. I'm currently waiting for this step motor: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015SS3Y7O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . ... also noticed that the wiring is not the same that QIDI Tech One uses when it goes from the motor to the mainboard. Thank you in advance for any help/suggestions!

Qidi Tech 1 High Temp Project

by Someblokefromtheinternet

Hi all,

Managed to pick up a QT1 for the sort of price where you wouldn't mind it needing work to run,

It has some strange faults where the nozzle sometimes loses temperature slowly over time, a few times the print will start well below the target temp and massive swings in hot end temps, other times works fine/prints fine, I've had a dozen or so perfectly good Pla & Petg parts out of it.

Normally I would jump straight on Heater Cartridge or Thermistor, but its both heads and at random, so that seems really unlikely, I emailed Qidi a few times and they advised motherboard.

I would like a dedicated Nylon machine so this seemed like a convenient point to ditch the Qidi controls, replacing the whole lot with a 32 bit board and touchscreen (should only be a few mins in Fusion to redesign the front control panel), cheaper than a new Qidi board and an easy way round the 250c cap in the original firmware.

I have already got the all metal hot conversion for both nozzles, rest of the machine looks to be in good nick, belts and steppers are good, body is good, extruder assy is complete and works ok.

I have a good understanding of 3d printers and happy to strip and rebuild, but Is there some glaringly obvious reason this won't work but I'm too stupid to see?

Any advice appreciated

Which slicers can i use

by HJL33

I've just got my qidi tech 1 in the post and I've been really eager to set it up but my printer didn't come with the SD card so I was wondering if there were any other slicers I could use
