Hictop 3DP-08 Acrylic conversion to 2020 extrusion frame

I have decided to share my files for the 2020 extrusions frame conversion i did to my Hictop 3DP-08 acrylic. Hope this comes handy for many of you. The Hictop Prusa i3 Acrylic 3DP-08 printed great for me. Only problem was ghosting on prints with speeds over 60mm/s. So after the great success of my h...

Re: Keeps clogging, filament pulls out faster than stepper motor pushes

i had this experience when trying to print with carbon fiber filament
i found the carbon fiber was getting too soft on my heatbreak.... sounds like you may have heat creeping...
