    New to 3D Printing / Qidi X-Plus II for nylon

    Hi folks, happy to join this great resource of knowledge. I have a need to make some parts out of nylon and have acquired an X-Plus II 3D printer, Sovol SH01 filament dryer, and a spool of Overature Nylon Filament

    The first part I want to make is from a SolidWorks .sldprt file, volume is ~ 2.6 cubic inches (43 cc). Any suggestions for a first timer to be successful with this venture?

    I have zero experience with this, what is my first step after setting up the machine? I have an extensive background of injection molded nylon applications.

    You'll need file of whatever you want to print that is in a format that your slicer understands, save it as STL file in Solidworks.

    Then slice it and export the generated G-code as a file.
    Save that to an SD card or USB stick and print from that in your printer.

    Thanks Bikeracer2020, I do have the STL file. I plan to set the machine up in a few days after completion of the room it's going in.
