Re: HicTop 3DP12 Newb aid needed!

LOL...thanks. For what its worth mentally I'm probably more active now than I have ever been. Back in 1971 when I started as an apprentice tool maker, we never had all this amazing technology that there is around today, I feel like a kid in a toy shop so to speak! :-D Having said that I still enjoy...

Re: creality CR 10 different types/software?

On my older 3DP-17, I blew the main board. They sent me a replacement, no questions asked (I bought a replacement off Amazon though because the replacement took 6 weeks to get through customs). I noticed when I first started using my 3D Printers from Hictop that the mosfets were in my opinion too h...

Re: how to reset printer to factory settings

EEProm is an Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory This memory can be programmed with your configuration then saved, so every time you start the system it is configured the way you want it. Restore Failsafe: is the System Default configurations. This is in case you mess up the configur...

Re: Last movement touches the print

You can add a line in the End G-Code to raise the nozzle a little so as not to touch the model when moving to home position. Sample from My 3D Printer END G-Code M104 S0 ;extruder heater off M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it) G91 ;relative mode G1 Z+0.5 E-2 F{travel_speed} ;raise Z abov...

Re: how to reset printer to factory settings

I believe there is a Initialize EEProm In the Menus.
Best Way is to send a M502 followed by M500 See Below.

M502 reverts to the default "factory settings". You still need to store them in EEPROM afterwards if you want to.
M500 stores paramters in EEPROM

Re: x belt damaged by metal guider

I do not know exactly how the belt alignment on the CR-10 works exactly. I was having many problems with my 3DP11/3DP12 Hictops the belt would wonder first right then left but would never run true. Now I replaced the bearing with a pair of bearings with a flange this keep the belt running between th...

Re: OctoPrint

I still need to replace my bed on my FT-5...it's just impossible to level with the warp in it. I really need better bed springs too. My Octoprint Wifi only works if the ethernet is plugged in. I've had many helpful suggestions offered but it looks like I will need to wire up a hub near the printers...

Re: CNC - Router / Engraver

No!

I have been looking everywhere I could think of, and well you know the harder you think the more the wheels spin.
Was just looking for a new pool of things to consider for the project.

Re: CNC - Router / Engraver

I'll be curious how that goes for you. I see a lot of 3D printers want to do CNC and Engraving....but they are not well built for it....in that those metal chips will get into areas that could cause problems! Not intending on using a 3D Printer, merely a Ramps 1.3 / 1.4 controller that could be use...

CNC - Router / Engraver

I have been wanting to use my left over controllers Hictop 3D Printer Ramps 1.3 / 1.4 Controllers to make a Router / Engraver. I was thinking of something in the neighborhood of 300mm x 300mm x 10-30mm. Now having knowledge of Marlin could this firmware be used in a simple CNC Router / Laser Engrave...
