For those that are not aware, Qidi have an official filament sensor for the X-Max, mine just arrived, I just finished installing it, but I made some mods while I was doing.

I hate the way they set this printer up with filament locations, I hate using the top mount as it tangles all the time, and the internal one, which is my preference, is shocking on the slap happy way they expect you to run the filament.

So if you look at my pics, you can see what I did, fitted the sensor inside, and run some PTFE tube to make the filament feed in and out nicely, drilled a hole in the back and run it out side then back in, it works much better now.

If you pick up the sensor (ebay US site) just email Qidi support and they will send you an install video and an updated firmware to support the sensor.
