i could not for a life of me get this to work on my Qidi Tech I because I didn't really have the space nor could figure out how to make it so i ended up just hot gluing magnets to the hinge piece and that seems to work too.

Sorry to hear, it's a bit more complicated to print than other items I've created and your solution looks just fine! :)

What program did you use to print this?

Milkdud, this was printed with Simplify3D. There is one picture posted showing them on the build plate with the support. Some extra support was utilized on the cover hinge pegs to make sure they came out rounded properly.

What settings do you use in Simplify3D I used a free version and tried to home my nossel and it keep smashing to the side hitting the limit switch.

I have a paid version of the software, unfortunately I cannot make any recommendations past the already provided print settings since I believe they are based off "printer profiles".

ok so I managed to print this in simplified 3d only problem I had was the hinges didnt have support which I thought it did I checked on the box for supports but they didn't print there and it got a little stringy so I have no idea if it will fit until i clean it up a bit. In the future, is there a way to put supports where you want?

Yes, I manually placed extra supports for the hinges alongside the auto-generated support in S3D. This article may help: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/articles/adding-and-modifying-support-structures/
