No. Your print head moves Left/right on the X axis The bed moves forward/back on the Y axis
You are correct!
I should have proof-read what I wrote more carefully!

Re: Printer seems to mirror parts

Post an Image of what you are 3D Printing verses what is actually printed. If it is mirrored right to left X axis or if it is mirrored top to bottom the Y axis cabling could be incorrect. Now if both the X and Y Axis are mirrored then the X and Y cable could be reversed, this could be caused by fact...

Re: PLA sticking TOO much to bed.

1st of all what bed surface are you using.

I would reduce the temp again to 42C and print with a parts fan on to about half speed.
I might even help to raise the nozzle about 0.05mm using the Z-Offset.

Re: Suddenly very bad printing ??

This is a strange question but the two USB SD models do not even look like the same. You must have two different models. The left Model has larger protrusions on the Z-Axis than the Right model. It also appears that the Left model has a more rounded shape while the Right model is more square. It als...

Re: Filament Not Sticking to Magnetic Bed

Clean the Bed with rubbing alcohol at lease 70% for better to get any residues removed. It could make it easier to diagnose the problem if you could post a photo or video of the failed print. There is so many that could make the 3D Print first layer fail. Post the filament type an your slicers setti...

Re: Updating Hictop 3DP-12

If your 3DP12 is an original then any of these Marlin firmware should work, download and save to a safe place. Unzip for the filename given and look at all setting in configuration.h if you want to learn then you may want to compare the configuration.h I have provided with the one you are working wi...

Re: Firmware Marlin-1.1.0-RC6 - My Latest Version

This is an old thread please start a new one. I sent you a PM. We can share with you which Arduino IDE will be required to Compile the Marlin firmware you choose. I have upgraded my Hictop's 3DP11 and 3DP12 thru all Marlin 1.1.x and up into Marlin 2.0.x. An am currently using Marlin 2.0.x for both H...

Re: 3D printer fan(s)

Though I do not know much, hope this in some information that has been collected will be of use to you. Multiple fans are discussed here using D6 and D11 pins. This works with a dual external Fan module and describes using 2 (PWM controllable) channels (D6/D11) . Then incorporating them adding the c...

Re: Heatbed stopped heating 3dp-12 printer

There indeed is a way. IF you look at the connector you can see the silver pins. If you look very closely you will see a Flap holding the pin in, if you push it down carefully the little flap will push down releasing the pin. After removing the pin, can restore the flap to the original position usin...

If you see an extremely low temperature reading at room temp ("-14°C") then thermister is open. If you see a reading at room temp ("22°C") then thermister ...
