Stepper Drivers & a TL-Smoother?

by LockANDLoad

Can anybody confirm what the stepper drivers are what model on the x plus?

Does anyone any have an experience using a TL-smoother on this printer? I'm reading its utility would really only be beneficial based on the type of stepper drivers you have but I can't confirm what we have.

Magnetic bed sticker... with gridlines?

by LockANDLoad

so one of the things I don't like about the magnetic bed sticker that comes on the x plus it's got a whole lot of busy graphics and text on it. I would rather just have a cleaner, one color bed sticker with only grid lines & size markings. however, this is somewhat of an odd sized bed it seems because all of the ones I've seen, nothing would fit. Even cut to fit.

Does anybody have a suggestion?

Material Cost Calculator in Qidi Print?

by LockANDLoad

Has anyone ever figured out how to get the Material Cost Calculator in Qidi Print (lower left bottom software window) to do anything? Why is it there as I see no way to input data or a way to make it calculate.

QIDI X-Plus X-Max Noctua Extruder Fan Upgrade

by humebeam

Copying this over from the X-Max group. I designed and published a fan duct for upgrading the small 30 mm extruder fan to a larger and much more quiet Noctua 40 mm fan. This mod will work for the Qidi X-Plus and X-Max.

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.

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.
