Re: Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

The original Hictop threaded rod was a 8mm 1.25 threaded all-thread screw that does not fit snugly into the coupler. I placed a single wrap of thin electricians electrical tape around the bottom of the threaded rods then pressed them into the couplers, this allows the threaded rod to spin true not i...

Re: Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

Re: extruder retracts the filament all the way out above the nozzle

Have you tried the Cura settings. You can adjust them to meet your printers requirements.

Re: Cura vs Simplify3D Facebook Poll....

I took a look at your Model and see it was poorly assembled from many pieces. I took note that the left hand ear is not connected even before slicing you can see space between the left hand ear and the scoop of the model. I took the liberty of property connecting both ears, though noticed that the s...

Re: Cura vs Simplify3D Facebook Poll....

I personally believe that you can have a poll represent any result you want by where and how the poll is taken.
