    Hi, I am using a QIDI Tech Dual. Recently, I started noticing this weird issue that has stopped me from being able to print anything. I slice in Simplify3D and upload the gcode to Octoprint. The first thing my printer is supposed to do is move the build plate to the top and the head to the start position. For no reason, the head has started moving painfully slowly, to the point where I have to cancel the job because I don't want to wait for it. I have tried different models and even upgraded to the latest build of Simplfy3D. This happened in the last version as well. I have tried jogging the build plate and the head in X, Y, and there are no issues with speeds at all. The belt isn't broken as far as I can tell and the steppers work fine in jog position.


    Can anyone see any issues? I have not touched my configuration for years and it's always worked. Thank you.

    Code:
    ; **** Replicator 2X start.gcode ****M73 P0 ; Enable build progress
    G162 X Y F3000 ; Home XY maximum
    G161 Z F1200 ; Home Z minimum
    G92 Z-5 ; Set Z to -5
    G1 Z0 ; Move Z to 0
    G161 Z F100 ; Home Z slowly
    M132 X Y Z A B ; Recall home offsets
    M135 T1 ; Load left extruder offsets
    G1 X-110 Y-75 Z30 F9000 ; Move to wait position off table
    G130 X20 Y20 Z20 A20 B20 ; Lower stepper Vrefs while heating
    M126 S[fan_speed_pwm] ; Set fan speed
    M140 S[bed0_temperature] T0 ; Heat buildplate
    M134 T0 ; Stabilize bed temperature
    M104 S[extruder1_temperature] T1 ; Heat left extruder
    M133 T1 ; Stabilize left extruder temperature
    G130 X127 Y127 Z40 A127 B127 ; Default stepper Vrefs
    G92 A0 B0 ; Zero extruders
    M135 T1 ; Load left extruder offsets
    G1 X-100 Y-65 F9000 ; Move to front left corner of bed
    G1 Z0.3 F6000 ; Move down to purge
    G1 X90 Y-65 E24 F2000 ; Extrude a line of filament across the front edge of the bed
    G1 X100 Y-65 F180 ; Wait for ooze
    G1 X110 Y-65 F5000 ; Fast wipe
    G1 Z1 F100 ; Lift
    G92 A0 B0 ; zero extruders
    M73 P1 ;@body (notify GPX body has started)
    
    ; **** end of start.gcode ****

    is it definitely using gcode ?
    if it was using x3g files then I'd recommend switching to flashprint.

    The first thing I would do is load the s3d profile for replicator dual and tell it to use gcode insted of x3g (check that first).

    Can't see anything odd in your startup code. But the s3d rep dual profile tends to work well on ALL the replicator clones. Usually better than the machine specific ones.

    Hi, thanks for your help. I realized I made a mistake. Simplify3D creates two output files after slicing - gcode and x3g. When I load the gcode into Octoprint I have the issue. When I load x3g into the QIDI 3D Printer, it works fine. The printer doesn't seem to accept gcode from the SD card and Octoprint doesn't seem to accept x3g. How can I fix Octoprint to either take x3g or print properly with my gcode?

    the printer uses x3g files - so just ignore the gcode.

    Try using flashprint instead of simplify3d - I find it works much better on my rep clone printer. Particularly for dual prints, which I've never managed to get s3d to do properly.

    No idea what octoprint does, just use the sd card :-)
