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.

Simultaneous bed and nozzle heating

by dlsmith57918

Does anyone have a script or a few lines of code I can use in the startup so the bed and nozzle will heat up at the same time instead of the bed heating first and then the nozzle?
I tried a couple mods a while back, but never could get it to heat both at the same time.

Load Filament x3g Files.

by 3DM4RK

As the screen on my Tech 1 died some time ago I am forced to work blind in the menus, while I have learnt most functions off by heart it is always a bit hit and miss if I have actually made a button press or not as no visual feedback is available, this can sometimes result in either the expected function not to take place or a totally different one to what was expected to take place. (annoying to say the least).

As you know our printers do not accept G-code directly and a binary x3g file is required. I therefore decided to compile two x3g files for my most commonly used function (Load Filament).

I will post here as someone may find them of use. Each file is named accordingly and pre-heats the corresponding extruder to 200oC and extrudes 200mm of fillament (at a sensible speed). They also lower all non used stepper motor voltages to safe levels.

I use a laptop permanetly connected to the printer and have these 2 files on an sd card inserted in the printer slot - so now I just select 'print from SD card' via my software of choice and select the required load filament file.
