QIDI Q1 Pro Maintenance Guidelines

Regular maintenance is essential for ensuring the optimal performance and longevity of your 3D printer. By following these maintenance tips, you can improve the machine’s performance and extend its lifespan.

  1. Improve the performance of the machine.
  2. Extend the life of the machine.

We can start with the following aspects.

Z-axis Lead Screws

It’s advisable to inspect and lubricate the z-axis lead screws quarterly. Should the printer be in regular use, monthly usage suffices. Initially, prior to lubricating the z-axis lead screws, it’s essential to remove any dust or plastic particles. Subsequently, apply lubricating grease and thinly coat the lead screws. Once the bed is homed, coat it lightly with lubricating grease and then reposition it lower. Apply an additional thin layer of grease to the z-axis lead screws and reposition the printer. Perform the motion procedure several times to guarantee uniform distribution of grease across the z-axis lead screws. Once finished, just remove any surplus grease accumulating near the leadscrew nuts.

X/Y Axis Linear Shafts

Regular cleaning: Keep the steel linear shaft clean and free from dust, dirt, and debris. Wipe it down using a soft cloth or brush to remove any accumulated particles. This prevents abrasion and maintains smooth operation.

Lubrication: Apply a suitable lubricant to the steel linear shaft to reduce friction and wear. Choose a lubricant specifically designed for linear motion applications(a simple light oil such as “3-in-1 oil” or sewing machine oil).

Protection against contaminants: Take precautions to protect the steel linear shaft from contaminants such as moisture, dust, and chemicals.

There are four fans that should be regularly checked for any dust and debris build-up.

The nozzle fan, model cooling turbo fan, circulation fan, and bottom fan. They should be regularly checked for debris or dust buildup to ensure a smooth operation and long life. With the printer off, we recommend using a can of compressed air. While keeping the fan blades in place, use the compressed air to blow air over the blades and clean any dust or debris.

Hotend & Nozzle

During a long period of use, our hotend&nozzle may have various failures, at this time we need to replace them, we can learn how to replace them from the video linked below.


When you replace the nozzle of the printer, it’s necessary to keep the recommended temperature of the nozzle for the corresponding filament. Also, you must wear thermal gloves to prevent burns.
