Affordable 3D Printer with Complete Feature
Nowadays, there are many 3D printer products you can easily found. It used to be one of premium gadget on the market, with the price that maybe a company or institution can afford it. Now, you can buy one that is not only affordable, but also has good performance. Qidi Technology X-One 3d Printer is one of them. So, what can you get from this 3D printer?
One word that suffice for describe its appearance maybe is simple. Too simple, we can say. Qidi Technology X-One 3d Printer is really similar to the printer that you can found usually on the factory or company. There is only slight consideration, we thought, from Qidi Technology as the product maker. It just likes a blue box with some machinery stuff inside it. You can’t even use it for decoration. However, judging from its look, it will looks like professional 3D printer, doesn’t it?
We can say Qidi Technology X-One is equipped with nice component inside. First, it uses FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) printing technology that can make the filament that you use become easier to shape the object that you want. Talking about the shape, this 3D printer is also able to create printing result with layer resolution from 100 to 500 microns. That’s quite detailed. And, it also has high precision in printing the object, with the positioning of the printer nozzle at 11 microns on X and Y axis and 2.5 microns on Z axis. This printer uses nozzle with 0.4 mm diameter, which make it able to print small part of the object. The filament diameter that it used is 1.75 mm, which supports its high detail printing process.
The printer size is also quite big. Its size is 15 x 12.5 x 14 inches. And, with this size, you will have quite big space to print quite big object. The build volume you can get from this 3D printer is 150 x 150 x 150 mm. the printer body is made of metal. So, we can say that it’s pretty durable. Unfortunately, the metal body that it uses makes this printer quite heavy. The printer weight is about 19 kg (42 lbs). Therefore, it’s not easy to move it around, which decreases its portability point. Maybe, it was actually made for professional that doesn’t move it around and use it at their business place.

The specification can be considered above the average. However, what make us decide to write this qidi technology 3d printer review is the feature that it has. First, like other 3D printer, this printer use two type of filament, the PLA and ABS. you can’t use both of them at the same time, but just choose the type that fit with your need.
Qidi Technology also uses cool design on its body structure. They use double layer metal structure on it. This design make the printing process become more stable. More than that, it also has metal platform support with CNC machined aluminum alloy. This part has 6 mm thickness that makes the base where you print the 3D object is really flat. This part also supports the stable structure of its body, which of course result in good printing result.
We said that Qidi Technology try to boost its stability to print 3D object. Other than features above, they also use upgraded 10 mm guide rod. This will help this printer to have precise Z axis movement. More than that, this upgraded rod also keeps the platform arm from changing.
And, of course, one of the best features you can find on this product is the 3.5 inch touch screen. This will make you easier to operate this printer.
