This is a good first print. I had to do a lot of filing and sanding to get the two parts to slide smoothly

Will be here if you have any questions.

Hello again!
I managed to add strain relief for the motor wire bundle with a printed part and I printed the auto sensor leveling mechanism. Thanks for the tips that have helped me get this far! I modified the firmware with the information you provided and reloaded the folder to Google Drive. I "commented out" quite a few of the other auto-sensor lines which I believe no longer apply, but I wondered if you would be willing to take a look at the configuration file before I load it to my printer? I am a little paranoid about bricking the thing. Any recommended changes or comments are very much appreciated! Thanks again.
Regards,
Buzz

Hello again!

Have a google Drive link with all firmware compatibly with your 3DP08 3D Printer Here.
Have given this firmware to many Hictop users and It has worked on all Hardware Compatible Hictops.
I believe you will be happier with the newer versions of firmware that I have posted there.
And have a few other links with more compatible 3D Printed Models.

On your Google Drive site, which of the five listed firmware files do you recommend that I use? Also, thank you for the .stl files for the accessories!

Currently I am using Marlin 2 on all my 3D Printers and even My MPCNC.

Though you can choose any version that you would like.
I could have stopped on Marlin 1.1.5 and really would not know the Difference.

I really like to the full adventure of All the 3D Printer fun including the Firmware testing and updating..

Thanks again . . . I'll take the plunge with Marlin 2 and see what happens! I appreciate all the help!

So, using a downloaded copy of the Marlin 2 files you shared with me, I changed the DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {80,80,2560,94.4962144} for my axis, then tried to compile using the Arduino software to get a .hex file. Instead, I keep getting a compile error. I am not real familiar with this Arduino app, but went out to youtube to learn how to compile with it. I may be making a mistake. I am trying the same thing with the copy of MArlin 1.15 you shared, as I write this note. Any recommendations you may have are appreciated.

To build Marlin 2.0 you'll need Arduino IDE 1.8.8 or newer or PlatformIO.

OK, got it. Thanks again. I have an earlier version working now, but will begin working on 2.0.
