I initially left a pretty negative review, but since then Qidi has gone above and beyond to make sure I had a good experience with the Qidi X-Plus.I exchanged my first unit because it seemed to not be keeping a consistent temperature. The second unit arrived with a non-responsive touchscreen and an extruder that didn't want to extrude. Though frustrating and tedious, I was able to get the touchscreen working with help from Qidi. Qidi Support apologized for the inconvenience, and sent me a care package with not 1 but 2 new extruders, as well as a bunch of other extra accessories.The printer now works very well, and I am happy with the operation and print quality.

I am a 3d printing hobbyist. I assembled my owner 3d printer from scratch two years ago (HICTOP Prusa I3 3D Desktop Printer). I bought the previous version of QIDI 3d printer about 1 year ago(QIDI TECHNOLOGY 3DP-QDA16-01 Dual Extruder Desktop 3D Printer). This one is my 3rd 3D printer. I am super satisfied with it. This one, in my opinion, acts truly like a normal printer. It sits quietly at the corner of the house and gets all the assigned jobs done nicely. Those anxious days that I have to babysit every printing steps are finally gone.Pros:1. It is very easy to set it up. Just follow the included manual, you can start to print the test model within one hour.2. The printer is sturdy built. Exterior looks beautiful and professional. The printing space is large enough that you can get a lot of large objects printed well.3. I really like the fast leveling function, which is super easy to do. I just need to check one point to make the bed level.4. The printed object can be removed by bending the plate. It saves a lot of my shoveling efforts and protects the plate from scratches. I noticed if the plate is scratch free, I don't need to apply glue to the plate anymore.5. It has a lot of cool functions like you can stop the printing in the middle and change a different filament and continue the job from where you stopped.6. The QIDI support is the best. They are super responsive to reply emails. They patiently explained the details about the product and helped me to solve the problem. Once I made a stupid mistake when switching filaments. The filament was stuck because I didn't follow the instructions. I called the QIDI support line and the technician helped me out.Cons:1. Software needs more improvements. The machine came with its own slicing software. However, it does not feature complete compared with other mature software like Cura.2. The printer can connect to WIFI well. However, I ran into some issues with printing via WIFI due to some software bug. It was fixed after I contact the support and get the updated software. It will be nice to have a channel to always get the software updated.3. The touchscreen interface sometimes is confusing. When doing the bed level adjustment, the up/down movement will be activated as long as the button is touched. When loading/unloading the filament, the up/down will be activated if the button is touched once. The motor is running continuously even the button is no longer touched. It can only be stopped by hitting that stop button.Overall, I really like this printer and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a hassle-free 3d printer.

[[VIDEOID:2e45252b9ae57a89e58cf9ce2dc2a94c]] Update: I had no initial issues. There is a lever on the extruder that you could use when loading filament, but it seems to work without it. Maybe it is there if you have difficulties. The LCD panel seemed a little weird, but I think that was me just getting used to it. It seemed like it was staying on after I turned it off, but it just takes a few moments to fade to black. I have printed hundreds of parts and most of them turn out perfect. Once in a while I have issues, but these are usually with the file and not the printer. BTW, I usually print large parts, typically in the 6x6 range. Sometimes I use a raft and sometimes I do not. I have no complaints with this printer and I have used it extensively. My product that I am developing is called a Black Hole Skimmer. It is a product for cleaning swimming pools.I have been working on several prototypes, and I needed a 3D Printer to print the parts for these prototypes. So, I ordered a Prusa MK3S. I built this printer and printed some samples and all was fine, but I had difficulties printing the larger pieces. Then finally it crashed and I was unable to use it. I worked with their customer support, but it would takes weeks to get a replacement. So, in all, order time 4 weeks, build time 1 week, test time 1 week, replacement 4 weeks, it would have taken 10 weeks to finally start printing. Therefore, I took a chance on this printer QIDI X Plus. When it arrived, within three days, I was surprised because it was so sturdy. The frame is very solid and there are two cast aluminum print plates. With this printer the plates raises up and down, instead of the extruder raising up and down. This seems to work very smoothly. One of the issues that I had with the Prusa is that the plate rides on three linear bearings, and these bearings are attached to the plate via U bolts. If these bolts are tightened improperly, then the bearings probably will become damaged, and then the printer won't print well. This leaves an uneasy feeling, even after testing, because you are never sure if the bearings are tightened properly. With the QIDI, this worry is not there. All I did was plug it in, do a fast leveling, put in the filament and print a single test object. The, I printed the large parts that crashed the Prusa. I printed all of my parts and finished my prototype within a week. I then, had time to redesign parts that didn't work well, and printed them. Wow. I felt like this is the future that we were promised. I love my QIDI X plus, and will get the large print X Max eventually. I never called tech support, because it is pretty easy to use. I learned some stuff while crashing the Prusa, and this made using the QIDI a snap. I feel bad, because Prusa seems to have been a pioneer in 3D printers and I really wanted to support them. But this QIDI is just too good and easy to use.06-29-2019 (update)I have printed a lot. Maybe 4 KG of filament. Then, an error started to appear asking if I wanted to change filament. After some Googling, I figured that I should replace the nozzle. I removed to extruder, which was so easy to do, just three screws. With the Prusa, I would say that this would be near impossible, as there are many wires and you have to remove the truck from the slide rails. No easy task. The QIDI had a simple wire harness that once disconnected allowed me to simply raise the extruder from the truck, which stays on the rails. Cool thing is that QIDI included an extra nozzle. the PTFE tube and the tools needed, which were 2mm hex, 2.5 mm hex, and a wrench. I did need channel lock pliers to hold the heating element while loosening the nozzle. I changed the nozzle in less than 20 minutes, and I was being very cautious. QIDI also sent a high temperature extruder, which I now realize will be so simple to install. This was my fallback, if the nozzle replacement did not fix the error.6-30-2019Above, I said that I had to replace print nozzle, but not true. I left an email with tech support, and within a few hours they replied with a solution. I had messed with a setting in the software when I was bored, and forgot. Then, when printing the print would stop at 5 mm high. Fix was simple, change the setting back to the way it was. However, I learned a lot about the extruder, and found that it is very easy to work on. There are very few little parts, and it is made of several assemblies that are easy to remove. While I was in the extruder, I cleaned out a little glob of filament that could have caused issues. It was very easy to reassemble. I did notice that the little PTFE tube on the nozzle has a slightly more narrow end. This end seems like it should be in the nozzle, else the filament is difficult to load.9-4-2019Still printing and it is still working great. I have this printer and a Raise3D, and I use them both about the same. The Raise3D is a little slower, but has higher tolerances. he QIDI has good tolerances, just not as accurate as the Raise3D, but the Raise3D costs 4 times as much. I have prototyped and patented three inventions using these machines. Still really happy with the X-Plus.12-1-2019Last night I print Akro Mils drawer separators on both my Qidi and my Raise3D. On the Qidi I could print 16 parts and they turned out perfect. On my Raise3D the raft warped and the parts were a little rough. The Qidi surprised me and did a much better job than a much more expensive printer. The photos show a part that I printed on a raft and the same part without the raft. The quality is very high.

[[VIDEOID:1fb7fd0be0c5a6093865b21db85e6d8d]] This is my first 3D printer. I just finished my 3rd printing. My first 2 were heddle hooks for my weaving hobby. This latest print was an articulated butterfly that I found on Thingiverse. Amazing that it can print a movable object without additional assembly! I have purchased several spools of PLA for prototyping and I'm waiting for the high temperature extruder to arrive so I can try some nylon prints. This is so much fun!The bed leveling on this printer was very easy to do. I don't plan on changing it unless I print onto painter's tape for some of the filaments. The software is Cura based, and for a beginner, it's very straightforward. I like that it gives you default values as a baseline. There is so much information online, that I didn't look at the manual until I needed to change the filament. Also, this thing is a beast! It's about 50 lb. and very well made. Extra parts are appreciated as well as the tool box that comes with it.So far I am very pleased with my purchase. I think this is the best thing I've ever bought from Amazon and I've bought a lot of stuff!UPDATE: the company sent me the config file to add the printer to the open source Cura, and it worked great. But... I like the QIDI version of the software better! It does everything I need to do. Some of the features I could not even find in CURA.I can't say enough about the endless, bottomless customer service I have received. They are very prompt and generous with instructional videos, parts, advice, etc. I love these people!Keep in mind, I am a 65 year old woman with no previous 3d experience!!!The glow in the dark PLA unicorn switch plate had easily removable supports all under it, put there by QIDI’s slicing software. A breeze!Update: Still loving it! It’s printing with the antimicrobial PLA that everyone says won’t print on their printers!! Yay QIDI!

User says:

I can't say enough good things about this printer and especially about Qidi 's support. This printer is a beast.It is physically large compared to rep rap printers with the same build deck, but what you get with this printer is well worth it.It is direct drive so you have the ability to run flexible filament along with pla,abs etc. Since its enclosed material like abs run much easier. The build deck has a fantastic magnetic buildtak style build deck that materials stick to very well. The whole printer is super solid and built to last.Dual z axis supports and all aluminum axis mounts. Super easy to level.You can use an easy single point semiautomatic level or the full 3 corner plus middle leveling system.I contacted Qidi for the free upgraded extruder head and within an hour they responded.I received a shipping notice from them that the extruder will be here within two days all the way from China .Now that's service! I also had a few newbie questions and ever question I asked I had a response within a few hours with pictures and descriptions of what mistake I was probably making. This company really cares about their customers .For the money I don't think you can do any better than this printer, and for any amount of money I don't think you can do better than buying from this company. I am not affiliated with or get any compensation for my review.Im just a regular guy who appreciates a good product with good support when you are spending the type of money these printers cost.

User says:

Amazing product. I am a 3D printing newbie and I installed, leveled, and printed the test file in very short order. The included instructions and videos are very clear and easy. The X-Plus is very robust and well built. The shipping packaging was excellent. That was yesterday. Today I loaded the Qidi software on a PC and downloaded a Velociraptor file from the Internet and then imported it, Prepared (sliced) it, and then Wifi'd it to the printer and started the printing remotely. It could not have been any easier and smoother for a noob like myself. I purchase several types on filaments to try including a flexible one for RC tires, cell phone cases, etc.. I need both the high temp extruder and enclosed case that comes with it for the high temp materials. One nit is I wish I could check on the status of the print via Wifi as well since i submit the files and start the printer via WIfi now. I am updating this review (Bought it on July 10th) now with about 200 hours of printing on it. It is still excellent. The latest prints are lithophane's from photos but I have done several different types of prints at this point.

I have used 3D printer for a while and I would say that the QIDI X-plus is a very good one for newbies or for professionals. Everything is so easy when following the detailed instruction book. The machine is running continuously and so far, I am very happy with it and will post more pictures of my prints.Pros:1) Large building plate: 270 mm length, 200 mm width, I have not tested the height (suppose to be 200 mm) yet. My large flat print went very well.2) The front on/off button is very convenient.3) The magnetic removable plate makes taking off models so easy and also good for cleaning. I used to like to replace the original plate to glass one, however, I do not think it is necessary this time.4) Control is easy with user friendly GUI on the large LCD screen.5) I like the leveling setting which is also very easy. It seems it was very well set in the factory. My setting is just a in case thing after the long distance transportation.6) Very solid design which gives me a feeling that it can last forever.7) It can automatic shut off when the printing is done, nice feature.8) Very nicely prepared toolbox which has everything potentially needed later.Cons: None

Solid, quiet, prescsice preformance, excellant support, wide range of filament support. It's been printing solid for about the last 10 days and the output has been flawless.I especially like the enclosed cabinet to keep a controlled printing environment for different types of filaments. It seems more and more printers are not providing this feature anymore, probably to save costs.The design and build of this 3D printer is nothing short of amazing. It weighs 50 lbs and it's easy to see the high quality of components used. A true bargain in 3D printing at any price, let alone for $1000.UPDATE-I've been using my QIDI printer for a little less that 4 months now and I just wanted to pass along my first-hand experience with QIDI tech support from last week. Last week, out of the clear blue the temperature reading on the X-Plus was stuck at the high end at 614C! Obviously, this brought my 3D printing to an abrupt end.Being it was late evening here in the US, the tech support team at QIDI replied to my SOS email within the hour and had me try the high temp hot end in place of the normal hot end in use at the time of the failure. Same result with the high temp hot end with the temperature stuck at 614C.So this didn't prove the hot end was bad as maybe both hot ends were coincidently bad as I had not ever used the high temp before.So get this: because we couldn't determine if the main board, the ribbon cable or the hot end was bad, Linda immediately shipped me all three components DHL Express! In three days I had the parts, determined that the main board was bad and was back in business printing everyday just like before the incident occurred.There are many companies right here in this country who could benefit mightily by adopting this this same approach when it comes to customer service.

This is my second 3D printer. I had purchased a different brand that was very highly-rated (about $300). However, the QC on that printer was terrible and wasted several weeks trying to troubleshoot it. It really soured my opinion of 3d printers. Roll forward the clock six months. I still wanted to teach my kids about 3D printing, so I did the research (again) and came across this model. I actually wanted the Qidi Pro with the dual extruder) and ordered this one (Qidi Plus) by mistake. I kicked myself, but made the best of it. PROS: Compared to the other 3d printer - set up for this one was a JOY! :) It's mostly pre-assembled. The instructions were clear. I set it up from A-to-Z in ONE night. It comes with leveling paper AND a full roll of PVC. It has a more sophisticated leveling feature that made the process nearly foolproof. It printed EVERY print. It even printed superfine details (such as a 3 mm wide straight VERTICAL Minecraft torch WITHOUT supports! Don't believe? I didn't either, so check the photo.) I think it's because it's solidly built (like a rock) versus one that is open (e.g. tower-type) and raises the bed to the extruder versus the other way around. The case also helps keep a constant temperature at the print (important when it's cold). I didn't have to contact tech support, but the instructions said they'll respond within 24-hours. CONS: It is possible to feed the filament to the extruder incorrectly (it will pop out the side where the fan is). The mat is SO GOOD that the print sticks without glue stick - why is that bad? It was tough to get fine, small prints off without damaging them (do I care? No, since my first printer NEVER stuck and I was sick of using glue sticks...). SUMMARY: it was worth every penny! And no, I didn't get any endorsements or freebees. Will update if anything changes, but after 3 out of 3 prints so far, what can you say except I LOVE IT!!! :)

[[VIDEOID:2fde014bcec5679ca8312ffdf8144a34]] This printer is everything everyone's saying in the 5-star reviews:- It makes beautiful prints- Took only 20 minutes to go from UPS ringing my doorbell to starting the test print (in the photo)- The printer construction is very solid- I found it easy to set up WiFi, download the Mac software from their site, slice something from Thingiverse, then send over the network to the printer and start printing, all without having to be at the printerI was worried about the 50+ pound weight, but the unit is large, like a bigger microwave oven, and I had no trouble lifting it out of the box and up to the table by myself (though I wouldn't be able to carry it alone to another room).There was some styrofoam dust inside the printer cavity after unpacking, but it was easy to remove with a handheld vacuum.Surprisingly the 300c extruder was already in the box! I thought I was going to have to get it shipped from China. I'm not currently using it, but would like to try PC or Nylon at some point.I used to own a homemade Reprap printer and stopped using it due to all the necessary fussing. I wanted a plug-and-print 3D printer and I feel I made the right choice!Update December 8, 2019: Great customer service experience! My soft power button stopped working and I contacted Linda. She immediately sent easy-to-follow troubleshooting instructions including a video and a work-around to get my printer working again They sent me a replacement part that arrived a few days later. It was easy to replace and my printer is back to normal. I'm very pleased!!

This is our second 3d printer at home. and after printing everyday after 1 month, I feel I could give some feedback.First all, the printer is build very sturdy with enclosure. It works out of box which is really save time and efforts.I feel this is a luxury version compare to my first one (which is still working though reporting error now and then).What make Qidi 3d printer outstand, as the other comments said, the customer service response quickly. They would like to give detailed information. They even have lots of videos to show how. The videos are not polished much but just informative for diyers.The only thing I concerned about was that we have only linux computer at home but the default qiti slicer was for windows / mac. I send them a email before place the order, and they send me a config file for CURA to test out. And it works great for me at default. Will try to mess around the settings now and then.The removable plate make it easy to remove models. It has two sides. The white side can print without glue. but I found the PLA will stuck to it and very difficult to remove. Now I use blue tape on the dark side (need to calibrate again) and now removing models are so easy.So far the only problem is that filament break during printing, I tried to switch filament. The printer has a change filament option. It resume at wrong height. I may need to read manual/video and try again later.My 11-yo son can operate the printer himself as long as models are prepared on SD card.I would say the printing process is worry free (comparing to our first one).

I ordered this machine last Christmas as an upgrade for my QIDI x-pro. I still play with the X-pro, but sometimes I just need a little more room to print extra-long objects. When Qidi released this model, I was so excited by its print volume, price, and most importantly, the ability to print carbon fiber materials. However, I was moving after Christmas and was not be able to play and tune this baby and write a review about it. Now, it is time.Package:Very neat package. They included everything that you need to start your first print.Quality:straight solid. The Z axis has 4 guide rod which provides extra support for the large build platform. The x-plus is still building with all metal with no shortcuts.Setup:I set it up in 10 mins. It basically plug-n-play. they are now offering two leveling method, a faster one and a normal one. They are still not offering auto-level function, but I find no problem using manual leveling. Once you leveled it, it stays there for months.Prints:Excellent print!!!! No artifacts at all. They mailed me a new printer head after my delivery and told me that the new head is for carbon fiber prints. I haven't got time to play with it yet, I will update this review after play with it. ONE more thing, This machine is so quiet, I can't hear the stage move, only the fan noises.Customer Service:Look at other people's review, They have the best customer support, They respond to emails really quickly.Overall: I am very happy with the package. I will play with it more to see if there are anything I don't like.

I bought this printer mainly to print functional parts. It did great in this task. With no previous experience in operating a 3D printer, I’ve already got a digital back for my large format camera and a knock box for my espresso machine. This printer is well designed and manufactured. It just works out of the box. The precision is better than I expected and the structural strength of PLA is also not bad, although I haven’t tried carbon fiber enhanced materials or polycarbonate yet. The support of Qidi is great. Once I had some technical problems of unstable extrusion. The support was very responsive and effectively helped me solve the problem.

This is the BEST printer for the PRICE period. I have been using it for a month now and have CR-10 V2 that I can compare it to print quality, assemblies and over all experience.Let’s start with CR-10 V2 First. The printer came almost fully assembled took me about 30-45 min to set it up and start running my first prints. Since this is my first printer CR-10 V2 it is, I took me about 2 weeks to figure out how to print. First I had layer adhesion problems then bed level. I had to learn all that before my prints start to turn up somewhat okey. They model that they provided on the memory card printed perfect but my prints were failure after failure. About 2 weeks into it I finally figured it out and started to print! My abs prints and PETG were warping and made those prints as a complete failure or somewhat deformed. So I built the in-closure Box for it which turned out to b huge because of the build volume that CR-10 V2 provides the hight of 400mm. So the prints start to turn up somewhat good. The problem with that though it shuts off at 258c if u trying to print high temp filaments. So I ran into temp limit. I know that I could of changed hot end and get it to higher temp but I got no experience to do that and because it is my first printer I was afraid of breaking it. So I start to upgrade it a little by little, first I got BL touch sensor for bed leveling that comes with instructions and video how to set it up. After I tried to set it up for 3 6-8hrs days I failed and still can’t get it to work I contacted creality, first they respond like 5 days later second they want me to video the whole procedure of the fail and saying that it might b a wire problems and to video wire diagram on the main board and the sensor along with the flashed firmware. But because it’s a failure and now it’s in the in closure it’s not an easy job to do just to make a video for them for the failure that they have. So then they came up with a titanium direct drive bolt on upgrade for the CR-10 V2 that I got from their own creality website. After installing it the drive were instead of feeding the filament into hot end it actually spit it out. So again there is wire issue that I had to figure out with a risk of burning the printer down. At the end I figured it out and switched wires pins and it started to work. So with the do it urself box material that coast me 130$ plus bl touch sensor 59.00$ plus direct drive 65.00 plus printer 540$ Lots of time patients and frustration u got a printer that BL touch auto bed leveling that still don’t work with a direct drive and a crappy box in-closure 800$ printer.Finally here come QIDI Plus-X. Comes completely assembled. U start print in 15 min. After my first print I had failed and my print got stuck to the built plate so hard that I ripped off the chunk of the plate trying to remove the print. It happened because CR10V2 and QIDI level their beds in completely different way. While CR10 V2 needs the paper to have lots of friction on it between hot end and plate QIDI printer needs just a slight friction. So I contacted the QIDI and they sent me 2 New print beds within next 2 days but while I waited for it to arrive I was printing on the same bed just flipped it on the other side because they have 2 sided magnetic flexible bed which is AWSOME! Anyways about of month printing I had like 3 failed prints and it’s totally my fault because I were using same setting that I used for CR10 but after I updated their cura based slicer to the newest version I start to use just that. And I made a comparison between 2 printer that r having same settings same infill/hight etc one is sliced on cura 4.5 and the other is on QIDI slicer and QIDI prints comes out 30% quicker and better quality ! I really got a lot more to say but I am afraid that no one will read it.In conclusion. U will not find a better printer then QIDI tech for the price and what it’s offers with 2 different hot ends/inclosure/ bed level assistant and WiFi file transfer from ur computer and u can Adjust temp/speed/stop or pause wirelessly from ur computer. However it does not have runout filament sensor. But it got it have an option of fitting ur filament spool from inside the printer. I use it for printing abs. What it does is the inside gets temp up to 45c and the moisture drops to 10% it’s the same moisture %that my dry box produces and u don’t even need a dry box if u got QIDI tech. And it works like a charm. I have read some previous review about that inside spool holding location and ppl saying that it looks like it’s in the way or will not work, that makes me think they have never tried using that option. But for me this is the only option that I use. Unless I print with PLA that doesn’t matter about the moisture, which I usually print on CR10 V2 instead. This QIDI tech Plus-X I use for higher temp/abs/pc filaments prints and they r comes out fantastic. If u r looking for a printer that u want to print and print well without timkering it to make a good print this is a printer for u. Just make sure u upgrade to the NEWEST slicer directly from QIDITECH3DPrinter.com website and u r set!U will not get disappointed with this printer at all. There is nothing better for this price on the market as of 3/4/2020. I did a month long search and research. And to find printer under 1000$ that print temps up to 300c fully good looking professionally in-closed/wifi with touch screen that projects the part that u r printing on the display that is on the printer with the best costumer service that gets 5 out of 5 starts doesn’t exist. Even on E3D website review it rated number#1 printer and only then on second place goes Prusa MK3s and I will have to agree with them.I still print on in every single day with “0” issues. This is a highly trained work horse.If u got any questions I’ll b gladly answer them for u. Unless it’s something weird or I don’t know the answer to it. Ha ha ha jk. Have a great day folks.P.s. this “ Rick the pickle “ print is done on QIDI tech PLUS-X with ABS+ 200mm high On 0.2mm layer high and the quality as u can c if just great even 1mm teeth r printed perfect. There was no sanding done to it just primer so I can paint it and on the lift leg there is one tiny part is broken off because I was taking off supports too quick. But the arm is about 2mm wide support as u can c and it printed that just great.Hopefully that helps u make a choice and no I am not sponsored by QIDI tech. I wish I were but I am not just a regular costumer just like u...P.s. made this print for the outside light, because when I was installing it originally I dropped the glass that came with it. So I printed one on QIDI tech X-plus with rick on it if u take a closer look u will c it. This if from show “rick and morty” printed with transparent PETG.

I've purchased my fair share of cheap off-brand clones over the years, everything from weed eaters to guitar pedals to cameras to flashlights. It's hit or miss. Sometimes it's great, sometimes you get burned.Not with this printer. It is fantastic.Yes, the manual is hard to read. Yes the touchscreen menus are a little old-school and clunky. Yes, the customer support is on Chinese time. No, it doesn't come with cura configuration files (you have to extract them from the proprietary software or get them on the internet).But the printer is great where it matters: printing functionality. The only issues I've had so far have been line breakage because the spools keep getting snagged. But that's a Hatchbox PLA problem, not a problem with this printer.For a home or small office user, I really don't think you can go wrong with this product.

I'm a newbie to 3d printing. I do have some experience with graphics and CAD, but none using a 3d printer. That said, I was able to set this printer up (almost nothing to do except level the bed, which is simple), and print the supplied test model within about 30 minutes. The software is very easy to learn and use, and the printer works flawlessly. It's quiet, fast, and accurate. After a week, I've designed and printed 50-60 items, some as complex as a jewelry box with a sliding drawer (see photo), and have never had a failure of the printer. It's amazingly reliable and trouble-free. I had put off getting into 3D printing, thinking it would be an endless string of tweaking and adjusting, but this printer is ready to go right out of the box. I've printed using PLA, ABS, and PETG, and had zero problems with any of them.

First off I am not a hobby printer. I have several products I make that I sell both retail and wholesale to distributors. The machines I buy need to be capable of running for hours on end and the support I need is usually urgent as I need to have the machines running.I bought both the X-Max and X-Plus on the same day. Both of them were up and making money within 2 hours. I mostly use PETG but have also needed to print with Nylon and TPG. I all cases both of these printers performed great.Along the way I did run into some issues that were worked out immediately by QIDI. With the experience I have had with another competitors product I was concerned how many weeks of back and forth before things got resolved. I am at the point where I need to add another printer and I just ordered another X-Plus.Buy with confidence and know your getting a quality product with the best CS I have experienced in my 65 years.

Everything you need to start printing today is in the box. Assembly is really simple, because it comes fully assembled only a few miner parts for you to click into place. The instruction book is high quality with full color pictures that easily guide you through every step. You'll be up and printing in a matter of minutes, even if you've never seen a 3D printer. This printer is made of really high quality sturdy material and looks very professional. THIS is what a commercial "out of the box" printer should be like. It's exceptionally quite too. We previously had an Anet A8 and even though this printer is much bigger it's far quieter.We had an issue with our printer where the temperature readings were fluctuating wildly causing the extruder to be over-cooled which resulted in gaps in printing or peeling print layers. The support team responded to our email right away and worked closely with us to quickly diagnose the issue. They expedited a replacement part to us with easy to follow repair instructions and we've had high quality, detailed prints ever since.We're printing using ABS filament purchased from Amazon direct at 225C extruder temperature and 90C print bed temperature. Print quality is fantastic. This could quite possibly be the coolest thing you'll ever buy! Worth every penny.

It's hard to find stuff these days that work the way they are supposed to. This printer works extremely well. It's my first 3D printer, so I have nothing to compare to, but I found the setup guide and documentation to be very user-friendly. It's quiet, highly adjustable and just does the job. The heated base with extra magnetic platforms makes printing back-to-back jobs a breeze. I sent an email to Qidi requesting the optional high temp extruder and they responded in minutes and are shipping it out. Very nicely done, Qidi!Update 2019-02-20 - This company's service is OUTSTANDING! I contacted them on Sunday, Feb 17, 2019 asking for the high-temperature extruder that the offer for free. It arrived today, February 20, 2019 (only three days later). Just amazing!

I can't say enough about this printer. It is simply Amazing ...Sleek, Stylish, Quiet, Reliable, and the print quality is out of this world. Whether you're a complete amateur or a seasoned pro, this printer has everything you could want; Heated Hotbed, Auto-leveling feature, intuitive slicing software, easy-to-use touchscreen interface, and minimal assembly required. It even has an option to turn off interior lighting if you keep the machine in your bedroom.It only has a couple minor drawbacks, like the inability to edit heat levels while in mid-print (if you are running off a memory stick), and it will continue to print if it runs out of filament (instead of automatically shutting down like some printers), however, these are not a problem if you use the proper settings from the start.Customer service is also great. My motherboard short-circuited after a month (it was my mistake, I placed a binder clip too close to the extruder during the start of a print and the machine seized). Customer service not only replaced my motherboard but was also gracious enough to send me another extruder.This is the ONLY printer you will ever need. I own a BIBO and an JGAurora, and the QIDI X-Plus is, by far, my favorite printer. It truly is an engineering marvel.

User says:

I wanted this Qidi X-plus from the beginning but for some reason the order was always in a pending state so I went with other printers that I will not mention any names. All I could tell you is that they weren't cheap,reliable or consistent with the leveling or print and sent them all back, 5 to be exact. I finally was able to get the Qidi X-Plus order fulfilled and received it a few days ago. This printer is amazing right out of the box. Customer service is top notch and quick with replies to emails. I'm in the process of building a 1/4 scale 1967 Lotus-49. This printer meets all my needs. A+++++++++

User says:

I don't often; if ever write reviews... But Qidi has legitimately blown my expectations out of the water. First off, I don't know how to 3D print, this was my entry into the hobby. I wanted something more or less turn key and with several positive reviews. (So i check many options on Amazon and I noticed Qidi had nearly flawless feedback other entire line... That surprised me as it wasn't just one printer.) A consistent message from folks that purchased these printers is that the customer services is great; That's an understatement. They've been helpful on multiple occasions and have gone well beyond expectations answer basic novice questions, to tweaking a print file for me and even shipping the upgraded extrude for the X-Plus from China to the US in two days for free.I can't say enough about the support... in-fact I purchased a second smaller older unit off of ebay after the X-Plus arrived. It had a defective fan that I wasn't aware of. I reached out the Qidi and let them know I don't expect any warranty or assistance for the broken part but would love to know where I can purchase a replacement. They first asked me how my X-plus was working and wanted to ensure it's doing well and I'm not having any issues. After that they confirmed my mailing address and told me their sending me a new fan... That's AMAZING support; in fact, they didn't need to do that at all. It wasn't requested but they built it and want it to function. Thank you very much Qidi and Vivian.As for the Quality of the prints. Their very good in my opinion. I've posted several images; please keep in mind like I stated before, I'm a novice when it comes to 3D printing. That said, I truly don't understand many aspects of these processes yet, so I'm certain my settings aren't optimal. The prints come out clean and I'm overall impressed. I had some issues while learning about proper leveling and would recommend manually leveling this unit over the fast level feature.Finally, the Qidi software is a little more basic from a graphical standpoint, but, it does the job and does it well. I downloaded and tried Simplify3D and really couldn't justify the price versus the default Qidi software. While, again, I'm sure if this was used for more commercial needs the Simplify3D software would add some more granular control... The Qidi software isn't bloatware or trash by any respect. In fact since i got my unit the software has already been updated twice so it seems Qidi is on top of upgrading that aspect of their solution as well.(I would love to see some additional features like visual representations of supports, or the ability to apply supports to only selected areas. Plus maybe an auto update option would be nice... Maybe some day.)All in all, this product was a great purchase and loads of fun. This company is one of the best I've ever worked with and if I look to purchase any more 3D printers in the future, they will be Qidi brand.

The printer is well-built with all internal supports metallic. Printing quality is excellent, although I have only printed with 0.2 mm layer height. The bed sticks excellent to PLA (I haven't tried other filaments yet) and the objects are super easy to remove by folding the bed cover, which is removable and exchangeable.Staff support is really excellent and answer promptly. They sent me by free their new version of the extruder, which I haven't tested yet. They help me with some troubles I had and offer to send me some replacement parts, which I didn't need since we found a solution.I might update this review in the future, if I start printing with other filaments.

User says:

Yes, there is quite a bit of time difference between southwest Texas and China, but as soon as they get into work, while we are going to bed, they will respond. It takes time to get the product from China to Texas, but not as much as you would think.I started with the X-Pro, then got another X-Pro and finally I have the X-Plus in the next few months I will be buying an X-Max. They are patient when trying to figure out what us noobs are trying to tell them is wrong. If they can't get it verbally we use video's and photo's to try and work it out. If all else fails we start talking replacements.Truly they are gems to work with compared to other companies. If you are hesitating, start with one of their smaller machines but don't be surprised when you end up going to a bigger one soon after.My husband and I are Egg Art Artist as well as a few other talents, the eggs above have been enhanced with 3D products. We created the star base hanger, the flames and lighted base and also the little alien ship parts. While many use their printers for bigger stuff we tend to do miniatures for our egg art. The X-Plus was up and running within a half hour of un-boxing.

User says:

The QIDI X-Plus is Very Quite and a Beast weighing in per UPS shipping label at 64 pounds!The Magnetic build plate makes clean up and removal of your prints easy. Had a problem with prints notsticking but with some washable glue sticks i fixed that, afterwards i would just use rubbing alcohol to remove the glue or run hot water over the build plate if to much glue was building up on the plate ,then i would Dry it off and start over with some fresh glue.This is my 3rd 3d printer and learned real quick you get what you pay for because i got a cheaper 3d printer and it would not print and had to send it back.The X Plus will only mess up if you don't have the right supports or settings and don't level the bed right or you don't use glue on build plate. Right out of the box this printer will produce Very Good prints.The Customer service at QIDI was quick to send me a Extra Hot End so i could print some of the harder filaments.

User says:

I spent about the last year and a half researching 3D printers and was nearly settled on a different brand. But then I found this one and was impressed by its versatility with differing filament types as well as the printing capacity. I am nearing completion on my computer engineering degree program and wanted something fun as well as to help me on my final project.I've had it for about a week now and it has been a very fun experience. Set up was a piece of cake. I was printing the test file in less than 45 minutes after opening the box. Since then, I've created an account with thingiverse and tinkercad; thingiverse is an online community with seemingly countless 3D print files mostly free for use (i haven't found one yet that charges) and tinkercad is an online development tool that you can create your own files to print (also free). I've created two files in tinkercad (not in photo) and downloaded the cat and Groot in the picture from thingiverse. All files imported into QIDI's slicer and printed without issue all with default settings.I’ve just received the additional high temp extruder and look forward to getting some more filaments and trying it out. The installation instructions look simple enough. If I didn’t have homework due tonight, I’d already be installing it.

User says:

I have been using this printer every day for the last 8 months. I have to say it is very good quality and has great reliability. I had a small issue with the printer and it was solved very fast by their support department. I you have a issue their support department gets back to you very quick.. This is the printer to buy if you want a printer that works great out of the box and every day.

User says:

I have printed many different materials with great success (PLA, TPU, PETG, CF,Wood, etc). Their support team is super responsive and helpful. With careful setup, it is amazing what the QIDI X-Plus can print. This photo is a working knife pivot pin and screw with 6-32 threads. Functional printed 6-32 threads!!

User says:

Very good 3d printer. I have used it to pribt tpu and carbon fiber filaments. Max temperature is 300. Ive only needed to go up to 265. It has a steel nozzle, so high yemos and carbon fiber are no problem. Doesnt get hot enough for PEEK, but honestly... I'm more into using 3d printing to make molds for the laying of continuous carbin fiber. Making frames or molds and laying strands or sheet will result in a much stronger end result. Great accuracy and beautiful prints. Highly recommended. A++++

User says:

I have this printer for a years now, and all I can say is that its the most reliable printer that I ever have. Its a real indusrtial grade printer with really clever mechanical solutions. Its clear that the engineers behind this machine have serious knowledge to make a really good product. For this pricetag this is the best choice. It has all the features that makes the printing experience easy and fun. It can print with high grade materials, even with carbon filled filaments and when it comes to change the noozle its very easy. It comes with all the spareparts that you will need. Its a direct drive machine, which is a very important factor when you need to print something that can strech.The customer service is also really great, once I had trouble with the temperature sensor and they immediately send me a new one.

User says:

This printer is awesome... incredible print quality, and the range of materials due to the high temp capabilities is another big plus for me. Tech support is good and they have videos/detailed instructions for most operations and common problems. They are based out of China so direct communication may not always be completely fluent, but not bad. For the money especially this printer is hard to beat.

User says:

This my second printer with same brand it has what I read in discretions it is easy to use , no problems if you are beginner or expertFast shipping and very fast and friendly customer support serviceIt comes with nice and safe shipping box I worked with 240v with no problemsThank you Qidi

User says:

I had absolutely no experience 3D printing but wanted to buy a 3D printer with "future proof" capabilities. Out of the box this thing has been fantastic. The standard settings in the QIDI slicer have produced perfect prints with PLA (i haven't played with PETG or ABS yet, thats next). Their tech support is also very friendly and responsive to questions. Ive been printing almost continuously for 2 months, and haven't had any issues, but did contact them for general preventative maintenance questions.

User says:

This is my 4th printer and purchased to have a properly enclosed machine for ASA. I leveled the bed when I received it and have not had to adjust it since. Had a few questions and not only does support answer them in detail but they will print the model to test and send you the settings. Amazing.

User says:

It is working. But the slicer program seeing some trouble. Anyway it is a good machine for the price. At least the filament has not broke yet. I was using the Dremel 3D45 which is double the price and the top cover is very low resulting that the filament keep breaking due to the stress on the filament by the top cover if not being used for 1 day. It is very important to monitor the leveling gap in order to have the part adhering without issue.

User says:

I am impressed with this machine, I am an inventor and by making my parts for my new design saved a lot of money and time, like all 3d printers it is slow 18, 10 hour a part. Also I emailed them for a free printing head it arrived with DHL today very happy.

User says:

The hardest thing about getting this printer running was taking it out of the box.Pros: Easy Setup, Fantastic build surface, high quality prints. Wifi setup was easy. Touch screen display and controls work well.Cons: doesn't support certain popular hotend upgrades. It does come with 2 extruder assemblies that work very well however.I would buy this printer again, an refer it to a friend.

User says:

I have had nothing but good experience with the X-Plus so far. My prints are turning out Amazing With little to no adjustments. They were super quick sending me Extruder B and Linda has been awesome helping me with questions about the printer! Will not hesitate to do business with Qidi-Tech again!

User says:

Much better quality than the CR10 S5 I used to own.

[[VIDEOID:c6ae8e100b494dcfda6a05fc0c549e66]] I purchased this printer in a "damaged box" elsewhere so I can't say anything about Amazon, but I have been using this printer for the past week and loving it. It was so easy to set up, I was making my first test print 20 minutes after unboxing. Everybody is impressed with the print quality and the filter cleans the air expelled by the printer. The removable build plate is an excellent feature and really streamlines the production process. I would totally recommend this printer for beginners to the hobby, intermediate and advanced 3d printer users. I am planning on emailing Qidi directly to hopefully get and experiment with the High Temperature extruder. The only upgrade I'm planning on for this printer is replacing the included hot end(ptfe lined) with an all metal microswiss hot end. I'm also eyeing the Qidi X-Max as a future purchase for the even larger build volume.

User says:

Like this product. I am newbie in 3d printing. Never done this before. It took me 20 min to assemble and start print first demo. Same day, I was able to print my 3d model form fusion 360. Recommend it!

User says:

This is my first 3d printer. It's been really fantastic. I've never had any issues at all. I like that it has an automatic shut off option. It's really plug and print. So far I've only used the PLA that it came with. I like that you can use filament from any maker. The build plate is awesome! I have made so many prints, and stopped using the glue stick. The heated build plate took care of that. The prints come off the flexible plate very well.I've been using tinkercad, and Sculptress. I have been prototyping some challenging things that contain small tube structures.It can even print a small tube within a tube! Amazing detailed prints. I've made some lithographs. Really cool! This printer has never let me down. I've made over 100 prints so far! It also looks great, and it's quiet.The pictures of the little guys are about 2, and 2.5 inches tall. On the smaller one you can see the texture I gave it! The pictures on the right are lithographs. If you hold them up to light, then they look like a photograph. The small one is only 2" tall. QiDi slicer gives you a smoothing function, that I used on the big one. I haven't used the high temp head yet, but can't wait to.I love love love the quality of this machine! 10 stars!
