Re: Hictop 3dp-12 help

Ive had the hardest time getting help with this printer so take your time and I appreciate whatever help you are able to give. Last night I tried to save to the EEProm (store settings) but the printer didn't want to comply. I installed chips 1.1.1r6 firmware and besides z axis needing to be reverse...

Re: Hictop 3dp-12 help

Spoke too soon, Windows 7 would not boot today. Cloning the Drive then I will do a chkdsk / scandisk to see what is going on. Could be hard drive failure, copying that data is a good way to have a backup I can see the data if it is loaded as D: Drive on windows 10. MiniTool Partition Wizard Free for...

Re: Hictop 3dp-12 help

This is something that most do not do when flashing the firmware. You have to read the firmware and save the changes to EEprom. Connect you Computer via a USB cable using a terminal to your 3D Printer send the following commands. M502 ; read the firmware settings M500 ; save settings to EEprom HIcto...

Re: Anyone recognises this printing symptom?

Here are a few things you could try. 1. Scan model using a STL repair program, there are many programs and online STL repair programs. 2. Try a different slicer preferably a newer version on Cura and transfer your Profiles across. 3. Rotate the object 45 degrees and re-slicer, sometimes just changin...

Re: Hictop 3dp-12 help

Yeah Ive seen your posts but wasn't sure if I still needed to comment anything in or out. Also if my board is to old for the newer versions of marlin. I have used the Original controller's both the Base V1.3 and MPX.3 work with the same firmware up to Marlin 2.0.3. Have not configures or flashed a ...

Re: Hictop 3dp-12 help

I have posted all version of Marlin firmware that I have updated for my 3DP11 on many threads in 3D Printing Forum. But would post another link to my Marlin firmware again if needed. I have never added a BL Touch to the Marlin firmware though most likely someone has and we can get their input to hel...

Re: Strange "spiders web"

Retraction can cause the stringing, though stringing can be caused by filament that has absorbed moisture. Even it you set your retraction correctly a pressure caused by moisture boiling can cause a fine stringing effect. I purchase the below moisture eliminator from the Dollar Store and store my fi...

Re: Filament Run-Out Sensor

Attached is the first draft model of the filament run-out switch, I did not include a hole for the led in this draft model.
The circuit board fits into the model very securely and allows the LED end-stop switch to work very smoothly.

Re: PrusaSlicer - Slic3r

PrusaSlicer - Slic3r operates as well as any other slicer for my Hictop 3DP 3D Printers.
Though most likely as a creature of habit will continue with the same old Cura slicers I have been running, am I acquainted with.

Then Solder wire from center of switch to GND terminals to restore trace. RobotDyn.jpg Now to redesign the cas...
