Re: creality CR 10 different types/software?

On my older 3DP-17, I blew the main board. They sent me a replacement, no questions asked (I bought a replacement off Amazon though because the replacement took 6 weeks to get through customs). I noticed when I first started using my 3D Printers from Hictop that the mosfets were in my opinion too h...

Re: Last movement touches the print

You can add a line in the End G-Code to raise the nozzle a little so as not to touch the model when moving to home position. Sample from My 3D Printer END G-Code M104 S0 ;extruder heater off M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it) G91 ;relative mode G1 Z+0.5 E-2 F{travel_speed} ;raise Z abov...

Re: how to reset printer to factory settings

I believe there is a Initialize EEProm In the Menus.
Best Way is to send a M502 followed by M500 See Below.

M502 reverts to the default "factory settings". You still need to store them in EEPROM afterwards if you want to.
M500 stores paramters in EEPROM

I still need to replace my bed on my FT-5...it's just impossible to level with the warp in it. I really need better bed springs too. My Octoprint Wifi only works if the ethernet is plugged in.
