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.

USB not working on Qidi X-Maker

by shymousee

I recently posted a problem with my usb not working on my X-Maker. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a new board. I installed the new board and tried to print. I used the same flash drives and cards that I had used before and the same thing happened. The first time I plugged a flash drive in, it saw the file, but when I tried to print, it made a horrible noise and would not move. I contacted the manufacturer again, they told me to try a few things, which I did, but nothing changed. I even purchased new flash drives from Best Buy and tried that. The same thing again. The manufacturer suggested something else, which I did and same thing. I am at a point this printer is not fixable and a big paper weight and I told them that. It is almost at the end of the warranty also. I really liked this printer, but I'm tired of trying something and it not working or causing more issues. Has anyone had these problems or know of someone who had problems like this? Were they able to fix it?

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!

Qidi Tech I - Parting Out

by LCSteve

I picked up a used and supposedly broken Tech I recently for the purposes of extra parts for my other Qidi printer and found the problem making this a broken printer (bed not heating) was just a loose wire in the clip to the motherboard. The sad part is I found this AFTER I had it 50% disassembled for cleaning. So I continued breaking it down to the base components, cleaned everything and was going to post parts online but wanted to offer them up here first at a good price. I'll sell it as a whole unit (assembly required) for a decent price or part by part so if you need something send me a message.
