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.

Print weirdness

by timsep

Hi all,
I have ran a handful of prints the last couple of nights, and all have been totally fine (sans sticking to the bed way too well), however tonight has been a really odd story. I've leveled and re-leveled multiple times, swapped filaments, currently doing a calibration cube. But my prints all seem like something has gone really weird with the printer. I've even reset my Qidi Tech 1 profile in Simplify3d. It looks like a combo of layer shifting / warping at higher layers. Take a look at the pics, I'm making a miniature caludron, it's not too small and printing at 0.2. I have no idea at this point what is going on, thankfully i have other printers to take on the job now, but I'd love to get some insight.

Thanks in advance
Tim

Any issues or observations from long print times?

by JoeLogic

I've had my Tech one a few months and it's working great. My longest print so far was a 24 hour PLA print. I was wondering what others have experienced with long print times. What's your longest PLA or ABS print? Has anyone hit an upper limit where the machine fails and or hardware is damaged by a long print?
