    If we manage to get the refund for the davinci pro i'll surely try to get the qidi, anyway what slicer with the qidi? Always flashprint? Is g-code hard to set? I'm pretty sure even the davinci pro has it, but some slicers wouldn't recognize the printer, included cura

    Simplify 3D is excellent, and is rumored to have an update due out soon.

    Also another thing i want to know is, ease of first set up of the QiDi, for example, the davinci 1.0 pro, took some time to figure we had to adjust those 2 guides at the sides, and we spent quite some time figuring how to open it, and with the calibration, also, we no idea how to set G-code, unless flashprint is all we need and it understands the QiDi's language with no need of g-code.

    you don't have to set g-code. G-code is the default for all slicers.
    just slice and either save file to sd card - qidi has sd card slot. Or print over usb - I only do that for print times under 30 minutes.

    The sd card means you just need a power socket and can take the printer anywhere with files already lodade on the memory card.
    The delta also has a full size sd card slot built into the control panel. A lot of printers seem to have micro sd card slots - and those things are so tiny they often get stuck in the wrong part of the machine :-)

    Setup is basically take it out of box. Bolt on extruder, put hat together, attach tubes, plug it in, picka language and follow the on screen instructions.
    The welcome script guides you through: calibrating bed, nozzle calibration, loading filament and other stuff.
    Very friendly and easy to use machines.

    First time I fired up my creator I was amazed - it basically talks to you (in text). Loved that :-)

    All slicers use g-code. So you're not limited.

    italy eh ?

    Ok perfect then, pretty much what i'm looking for, and the sd card slot sounds very useful, any idea if it has wifi too? Not that's much important in the end i could just try and plug it into the router via usb and see if can print from anywhere in the house, but whatever, even directly connected to the pc will be fine. Anyway i'll stick to amazon probably, since it's amazon, and the one on ebay is used, and the guy selling it has little feedback, i wouldn't risk it.
    Thanks for all the help, from everyone but especially from you, really, as always, anything that comes on your mind guys, just post it, i'm always watching

    not wifi - BUT !
    you can buy a wifi sd card and use that - I've never managed to get mine to work - but apparently that's down to the early model I bought. Plus all 3 of my printers are within 5 feet of the workshop computer.
    Plenty of people do use a wifi enabled sd card with a 3d printer (actually a super mini linux computer)

    Not sure if plugging it into the printer network usb socket on a router will work - 3d printers don't usually identify themselves as plug and play devices to routers.
    But hey, can't hurt to try :-)
