Power Key Press creates error, unable to shut down printer

by Ryoma1492

Every time i try and power off my printer, it gives me the message in the picture ( Stating "power key pressed, restart now: I_4" )

Two Questions

  1. Am i alone?

  2. How do i fix this?

I have tried returning to factory settings, and tried a series of update files which QidiTech gave me (their support staff is very willing to help, but my problem wasn't fixed by their steps)

please help, if you guys can!

Get 3D model and proper time remaining on touchscreen with Cura

by kvnper

Reposting my post from the QIDI X-Max group:

If you're using Ultimaker's Cura with your X-Max [X-Plus, in your case] you've probably noticed that you don't get the 3D model on the touchscreen, nor an accurate time remaining estimate.

Well, I've found a Cura post-processing script that inserts the 3d model data as well as the estimated print time into the gcode file that will display on the touchscreen.

You can find the script in the github link below. Credit to Spanni26 on github for making this. I've been testing it for over a week now and it has been working well without issue.


I've also added a screenshot of what it looks like on the touchscreen.

QIDI Tech 3D Printer discord link: https://discord.gg/s2rwfms

I've also founded a QIDI Tech 3D Printer discord to converse with fellow QIDI owners and share resources. I hope it to become an excellent source of QIDI printer information. Hopefully we can discover enough to do as we please with the closed-source hardware and software.

PLA Printing and covers

by Born2Lose

I only got my printer yesterday evening and have done 3 small prints. I know the docs say that i need to have all covers/doors removed for PLA printing. However i have a toddler and i'd really like to keep all covers off but the door closed. This would really limit the chance of him touching something he shouldn't. Could i like turn the case fan on or something?
Thanks for your help.

Anyone got WiFi working

by DarthCoffeeBean

Hi everyone. I just got the x-plus and have it all set up with the exception of WiFi. Every time I try to connect it to my wifi I get a failure. I got in touch with Qidi support and they gave me some gcode to run. Still doesn't connect though.

The gcode if it helps anyone else is:

My firmware version is V4.2.6.5 /W.0.0.0 with the UI Blue+ 1.0.

Does anyone know of any other way to get the WiFi connected?
