Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

yes mine originally came with that green sensor. As I may have said, I never had the z-axis limit switch installed and after watching some old videos I figure I left it off a couple of ears ago because I was using the green sensor. In my attempts to get the printer working last week I actually hooke...

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Thank you Grue I will play with that print as well. I found a post out there with some good settings for the ender and I cranked up my filament to 230 to start and down to 225 for print and all looks awesome. Got my camera and printed a mount for it. This is really awesome! Thank you for all the help.

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

It looks like the bed is heating up too much for the prints I add. One of the test samples only takes the bed to 45. Mine goes to 60 or 70 even though I thought I assigned it in the machine settings. The filament doesn't get to heat I thought I assigned either. Stops at 200

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Let the games begin. Thank you so much for the info. I beat myself up long enough. Nothing like throwing a little money at the problem. Ran downtown and picked up an Ender 3 this afternoon. I do intend on getting the 3dp11 going but right now I need to learn something on a machine that actually prin...

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

How do you get those printers to show up or add? I don't see anything pertaining to a Hictop.

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

I give up on this pos. Maybe the phoenix port for the z axis sensor is no longer working. I went back to the included limit switch and while it stops the side its under the other side and threaded rod continue to drive downwards. Maybe the firmware on this thing is looking for the green proximity se...

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Guess I was a little overzealous as choosing the prusa i3 machine allows me to print from usb as well. It also buries the nozzle into the plate and starts to print or should I say gouge the metal.

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Another day on this thing and I don't feel much closer.. Stumbled across a youtube video with Chinese language but saw the dp11 and the user had the Ultimaker2 as chosen machine. I flowed along and did the same in cura, pulled in a .stl file and sent to printer Started out ok but stuck the nozzle do...

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Thank you GrueMaster for moving to correct thread in the forums. You have enabled me to understand that my Hictop 3dp11 is a form of reprap printer. I thought reprap was a brand last night...It's crazy how different all the tech is nowadays. I haven't spent this much time trying to figure out someth...

Re: Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Thank you for the replies. I spent more hours after I posted and only confused myself a bit more. First to reply to your kindness Roberts_Clif… I downloaded both of those files the 15.04.6 profiles zip gives me an error (Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error) Tried skipping through a second time but a...

Hictop 3dp11 Printer

Hello everyone and please be gentle with me. I have just about run out of patience with this thing. I've had this printer for a couple of years and finally decided to try and figure it out. Paperwork I have on it, is that it is a Hictop 3DP11 I've watched many different setup videos and it looks lik...
