Re: Where Do I Start?

This is actually a personal decision that one has to make themselves. It is a learning experience that will teach you much in 3D Printer configurations. You have already uploaded a hex file that works remember, this will always work as your backup. I have posted many of my versions of marlin for Hic...

Re: Where Do I Start?

You can use Cura to upload the compiled firmware that is saved as a hex file.
I have a non-standard firmware, where I have used the best features of marlin and have changed hardware.
This means that the standard Hictop firmware will no longer work with my 3D Printer that I have customized.

Re: Where Do I Start?

Chip lucks is a good version of marlin however we have much newer versions available. Though it is something to experiment with until you decide which version of marlin will suit your needs best. I would suggest a version of Marlin with a higher version number as in Marlin 1.1.9bf or Marlin 2.0.x. I...

Re: Help flimsy prints don't know what to do

Here is a few reasons why this could happen. Under extrusion - the extruder could have became clogged - the sliced model could have been sliced at the wrong filament diameter " I have had this happen " it makes the model look like Swiss cheese if you slice with 3mm filament and print with 1.75mm fil...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

I was about to print final parts, discovered that after copying the G-code files from my computer to the SD card. That MY PC incorrectly copied the file because of a USB driver corruption, caused file to make the 3D Print fail. Failure appeared a lot like a layer shift on the print gave it the appea...

Re: SOFTWARE QUESTION from a newbie WANTING to learm!

I should have noted: after you have calculated and adjusted the models new size to what is required.
This new model can then be saved with the new settings.

Re: Nozzle cleaning

As I have never had a throat without a Teflon lining, this may not be your best source of information. Make sure that the heat break that goes from the heater block to the heat-sink is assembled correctly. With full metal hot-ends - especially with the ones with hardened steel nozzles you may need t...

Re: Nozzle cleaning

No! What kind on print head do you have? I preheat the nozzle every time when it is up to temp I then start a print, Though this is just the way I do it. You should be able to send a print without preheating and it should work. Else you can set these in the slicers startup G-Code M109 - Wait for Hot...

Re: Beginner needs software suggestion - good intro training

I learned the basics of Fusion 360 in less than a day and then started building my Hictop controller case. As I got stuck I simply went to YouTube and learned how to do the next step until I had the case modeled. I know that this is not normally the way this should be done but for a sweet program li...
