Re: Updating Hictop 3DP-12

Bed leveling not saved in all older version of Marlin the newer version have a restore auto bed leveling feature. #define RESTORE_LEVELING_AFTER_G28 // This Includes Marlin 1.1.9BF and above. I still use the below settings in my slicers though. First you do a Bed Leveling, you can do this one of two...

Re: Updating Hictop 3DP-12

If your 3DP12 is an original then any of these Marlin firmware should work, download and save to a safe place. Unzip for the filename given and look at all setting in configuration.h if you want to learn then you may want to compare the configuration.h I have provided with the one you are working wi...

Re: Firmware Marlin-1.1.0-RC6 - My Latest Version

This is an old thread please start a new one. I sent you a PM. We can share with you which Arduino IDE will be required to Compile the Marlin firmware you choose. I have upgraded my Hictop's 3DP11 and 3DP12 thru all Marlin 1.1.x and up into Marlin 2.0.x. An am currently using Marlin 2.0.x for both H...

Re: 3D printer fan(s)

Though I do not know much, hope this in some information that has been collected will be of use to you. Multiple fans are discussed here using D6 and D11 pins. This works with a dual external Fan module and describes using 2 (PWM controllable) channels (D6/D11) . Then incorporating them adding the c...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

I just ordered the Dewalt DW660 so I have a few more parts to be 3D Printed. Vacuum Duct Frame Supports // Frame is not as sturdy as I would like it. Cable chains Power Supply case Arduino, Ramps Case ect, ect ect. Some of the thinner printed ABS models are quite fragile, they resemble older plastic...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

Today I was wiring end-stop switches using this video on my Arduino Mega 2560 R3 an Ramps 1.6 making sure the wire were exactly the same as the video. Well I blew the AMS1117-05 in a heartbeat so today I replace the AMS1117-05 with a DC-DC Step Down Buck Converter 1.5V 3V 5V 9V 12V 3A Adjustable Mod...

Re: Heatbed stopped heating 3dp-12 printer

There indeed is a way. IF you look at the connector you can see the silver pins. If you look very closely you will see a Flap holding the pin in, if you push it down carefully the little flap will push down releasing the pin. After removing the pin, can restore the flap to the original position usin...

Re: Heating Rod Not Heating(Ender 5)

What does the LCD display about the heaters. If you see an extremely high temperature reading at room temp ("358°C") then thermister is shorted. If you see an extremely low temperature reading at room temp ("-14°C") then thermister is open. If you see a reading at room temp ("22°C") then thermister ...

Re: New Creality Ender 3, extruder stepper just wobbles?

I was able to reproduce it with the MKS Gen L!. So I did some investigation and discovered that putting pressure on the female connector for the extruder "axis" where it connects to the board can cause the extrude stepper not to work or if delicately pressed, it works fine. The original pins look O...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

Today I duplicated my DC-DC Step Down Buck Converter to my Spare Ramps 1.6 board. I am now powering both ramps with 24volt power supplies. Have not ordered a pair of Full Graphics controllers for my newly purchased Arduino Mega 2560 R3's and Ramps. Though it is still on my list of parts to be ordere...

Re: Please help!! Raise 3D N2 won’t print circles!!

I would suggest the slicer, slicers do not slice circles they slice straight lines in facets or triangles to make a circle. If you use a Cad program to create your own models then I would suggest that you reduce the number of facets used to create holes or curves, as the slicers get confused and sta...
