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.

Clicking noise

by timsep

Hi all,
I've contacted Qidi on this one and have been working to find a resolution. I'm getting the known clicking coming from the unit's upper right corner (next to the platform). I've done the loosen all belts, maneuver the y axis back and forth fast, then re-tighten everything. Prints are coming out fine, it is just maddening to hear, dripping faucet level. Has anyone gotten any replacement parts from them at all? Just curious as to what anyone has done to relieve the noise. I know flashforge printers have this issue also, but less than the tech one.

Help resetting to factory default

by Nepherael

I just want to confirm this before going any further and I'm hoping others have done this. If you post please tell me if you have tried this.

I would like to reset my Qidi to factory default. So far I'm fairly certain I have only changed accel and jerk settings using RepG but I still want a clean slate to work with for testing. However, my printer is used commercially and I can't go down for even a day. There are two apparent ways for me to reset to factory defaults. I have actually contacted Qidi directly (whose customer service is awesome by the way) and they have suggested I use option 2 below. I'm fairly sure both ways are safe but I would like anecdotal evidence from someone else who has used 1 or both of these options with success. Please let me know if you have.

Option 1
Using the Qidi's on screen menu choose the "factory defaults" option and reset it locally

Option 2
Using ReplicatorG click the "restore to factory default" option from within the machine control window.

As I said, Qidi actually recommend option 2 but I am just a little scared to do either without knowing it will be fine. Qidi printers are known for being heavily modified by the manufacturer and once they're bricked my understanding is that I'm screwed.

Thank you all
