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.
Am new to the group, just got myself a qidi tech 1 really enjoying it so far, have made a few prints and alot of waste lol, anyway 2 quick questions for you, I was looking at steel nozzles and I ma getting conflicting information and searched around the net and couldn't find any definate answers so I though I would ask the experts now.
I am currently looking at the biqu steel nozzles mk10 m7 nozzles you can see them below
the question I have will they fit my printer, I read in another thread that 1 person said that the filament tube wont fit and another said mk10 fits perfect, also just to confuse the issue I compared the biqu ones against qidi ones and there is a difference in the Screw outer diameter: biqu 7mm qidi 6mm
SO I have no clue if they will fit or not anybody advise me here please.
Second question I have purchased a glass build plate 230x150x3mm borosilicate glass, I am just waiting for some silicon heat transfer sheet no-one sells it here in uk I had to order it from china, so to install it do I just screw down the build plate as far as it goes then put the glass plate in to see if there is clearance from the glass to the nozzle, or is there another way to install it, I am worried that the nozzle are going to go through the glass so I better ask here.
Thanks guys am printing out some shims now and some wire covers for the printer.
I was printing a simple part (78x78x78mm cube 8% infill pla) and at about layer 4 the x axis locked up. y and x were fine but trying to move either by hand or with jog mode would just rattle loudly. Powered off and on and the jog mode worked normally. I was printing tethered to my laptop at the time using s3d printing at 45mm/s. Any Ideas why that would happen? I did check heat on the stepper but it was the same as the others. Any help is appreciated
I've seen some reviews that say the QIDI Tech 1 has auto bed levelling - but I'm pretty sure they don't (they have the 3 adjustment screws under the bed). Am I missing something or are the reviews utterly wrong?
Also, is there a way to make it automatic?
