Re: Bought a used Hictop 3DP17 from a local chap...

The video is great, ....Now on I can simply reference this video. As a small, but trying YouTube channel who was monetized before they moved the goalpost last year (i need 750 more subs to get my $80.59), I really appreciate you sharing this video. It's gotten quite a few views between here and Red...

Re: Defeating the ABS curse.

Be careful adjusting the V-Ref use a non-conductive screwdriver, or one mistake can short the stepper motor driver. Use a Philmore 63-8276 flat blade alignment tool or a Ceramic Screwdriver Tool Anti static. I am sure this will make you cringe based on your reply and your profession. When I set the...

Re: Defeating the ABS curse.

I have had a 1mm build surface sheet on for over 2 years. Have never had a problem with the Proximity sensors finding my aluminum bed while using the 5vdc power source. You don't say, eh? Originally, I cut a sheet of glass for the bed, but I just decided to put the PEI direct on the bed. If I don't...

Re: Defeating the ABS curse.

:-) :-o I'm astounded how well the ABS juice sticks, and how a 20 degree drop in bed temp pulls the whole mess of clean as a whistle! PS, I got a 1mm sheet of 12"x12" PEI sheet in for the Hictop today. I plan to hook the level sensor up to 24vdc on Sunday so I can level through the PEI. it's going r...

Defeating the ABS curse.

So then...I am printing the BosnianBill brand new LockLab lock pinning tray that he just designed. It covers more of the print bed than any other print I have tried. I used my ABS juice I made, and went for broke. As you can see, I am on the second layer and probably out of the "It's not gonna stick...

Re: Extruder wont extrude Hitop 3DP12

I must have learned a thing or two about ABS because the last 5 prints I have done came out fine. Glass with Aussie hair spray has me locked down. I made ABS juice though and ma try it on a large, wide print. I am currently making the following on my Ender in ABS: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3...

Re: Extruder wont extrude Hitop 3DP12

So before I start Printing in PETG I will have to use up all my ABS or Donate it to the Local Tech School. Jeeze....if you were not in Washington (I'm in PA), I would buy a couple of those rolls off you depending on price. Frankly, this roll of ABS i just got shipped for $12.99 US (and a roll of PL...

Looks Like I also Need to start Cleaning my 3D Printer seem to be collecting a lot of dust. This made me laugh because the camera ALWAYS picks up stuff you don't want to show off....I know because my stuff is dusty as heck. I managed to print both of these brackets successfully in ABS! I printed on...

Re: Changing Filament - Very difficult.

I pushed the filament down when the hotend was heated and for the first time, I was able to pull out the ABS filament to switch it to the Ender. Huzah!

Re: Bought a used Hictop 3DP17 from a local chap...

Not in sets? Really? Mine were a pair (of course the exact item I bought was a pair and is no longer available on amazon). Nope. This is how I discovered how nice one-click ordering can be on Amazon. I have a video about linear bearings if anyone is interested in seeing whats inside. https://youtu....

The link to the video is bad, but I am going to try and print these today out of ABS with ABS slurry on glass. Wish me luck. This forum needs an infusion of people! :D

Re: Extruder wont extrude Hitop 3DP12

I guess my surface finish isn't really so bad then. I'm not really having a lot of luck printing in ABS. Part of my problem is I have fixated on creating a particular model in ABS and it's kicking my hot end all over the place. I have printed only that cube besides trying to print the Gayer Anderson...
