    It's not cura, it's some sort of qidi modded version of it, its name is just "QIDI TECH", actually, SHOULD be a version of cura, but i'm not sure of it.

    If you download FlashPrint and select the FlashForge Finder as your machine, it should work. You will have to manually turn on the bed heater through the control panel on front, but you will at least get the right type of file.

    I'll try that and let you know if it works, at the moment i'm printing a little bowl, it's coming out pretty nice, but i set faster settings and the larger part is not that accurate, it has few flaws, but it's ok anyway. As soon i finish the printing, i'll install and try flashprint and will let you know

    Using S3D you hit a save button and it walks you through a widget to specify the file location. Within the S3D configuration settings that control how to "post process" the GCODE that it generates, emitting an X3G format file is one of the options it supports. You pick the X3G format from a drop down list. (Incidentally, the X3G option is selected from the same list where you would select post processing for the DaVinci types 1,2 or 3.)

    Anyone know how to convert those gcode files in order to make my x-one print through sd cards?


    edit: I managed to do that, i found out that saving the gcode file directly into the sd card didn't save it, so when we tried to print it showed nothing on the card, but we were so sure we didn't even check properly if the gcode was really inside the card :facelpalm: Now i've just saved it somewhere else and then moved it into the card, and it seems to be printing properly, i'll try printing something else rather than another cherry keycap, later on, see if it keeps up.

    Will do, but if i got it right has only few visible differences,it's enclosed, has different cover for the printhead, and something. Had few issues in the past 2 days, while printing the filament got stuck because its plastic reel is broken on one part, and at some point the filament would start running outside the reel to get stuck some time later, as a result the printer couldn't get filament but it kept printing without printing basically and you could see the printhead printing nothing but keep going on higher layers, anyway totally not printer's fault, just the shell of the bq filament we're using being broken is all, rest seems pretty good, managed to print from sd card using qidi's slicer, still couldn't do it with cura, will also try flashprint.

    Hello guys, was a bit busy lately, here some pics http://imgur.com/a/PMjKH

    We recently bought a black ABS filament reel, to try and see how did it do with the printer, first print we tried the blue thermal sheet lifted and separated from the sticky layer, so we decided to remove it completely along with the sticky layer, and replaced it with some painter's tape, and we used the glue that came with the printer which has a weird vivid yellow colour, and we found out it's pretty sticky once the printer is finished (yes the central piece of tape had to go because when we removed the print, a part of it came off). The problem is some of the prints we made came out with tiny flaws, because, as you can see from the pics, there's a bolt right in the mid of the bed, although it doesn't protrude, it leaves a hole and with heat, it either makes the tape lift, or make the print unlevelled anyway, so we were thinking about upgrading to a glass bed, but we have no idea, which and how, seeing also how much the printing damaged the blue sheet after the first 100 degree print. Any suggestion?

    Just normal 3mm glass will work. Get it cut to the size of the print bed and use some gator clips to hold the glass. Then print out some glass holders for the corners of the bed.
