Re: DOH!

Well, ~12 decent prints later, and now my system is dead. I smelled hot electronics ~3 hours into a 14 hour print, ran into the room the printer is in, and it went lifeless except for the LCD a few seconds later. The hot end reported a temp of 216C (I had it set for 205C for PLA). Cura was showing ...

Re: Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

Was told there are no dumb questions only questions not asked. I have a question about auto Bed Leveling. Let's say you dropped a rock into a pond and got a series of waves, and this series of waves is the warp of the bed. and hypothetically the sensor could pick up this wave and the 3D Printer coul...

Re: Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

I have G29 in my start.gcode just after finding X0 Y0, and Z0 lines. This is what Hictop recommended for their autolevel sensor, and it will cycle through the AUTO_BED_LEVELING_BILINEAR before each print, but it does keep the data while printing. May keep it until the printer is reset. Not sure. I ...

Re: Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

Marlin-RC8BF-HICi3 Software Should have stated I have a Hictop Aluminum 3DP11 and use the REPRAP_DISCOUNT_SMART_CONTROLLER Click Display to Level the Bed. The Bed size is 270 X 220mm And my Sensor does not leave the Bed Area at any time. It Appeared to get lower on every pass line across the X axis ...

Re: [SOLVED] - HICTOP I3 CALIBRATION ISSUE

Can you post pictures of your new mount in action? I downloaded the STL files and want to compare them with two I found on Thingiverse. I have install the New Bottom Bearing mount sensor, At this time I did not install with the X-Axis PLA Bearings. you may have noticed the sensor was moved to the s...

Re: Gaps in mid-layer

I tried re-calibrating the e-steps. if anything, it made it worse. every few lines, the extruder would slowly wander off to either the X or Y endstop to peek over the edge of the print surface, then wander back again via a different route. Now it doesn't even seem to be trying to make normal angles...

Re: Can a 3D Printer Duplicate itself

The problem you have here is that you are designing for metal and printing in plastic. You need to design for the weaknesses of plastic, which is quite different. You will of course require considerably more plastic in order to get a stiff enough frame for a halfway decent print. It's an interestin...

Can a 3D Printer Duplicate itself

Printed a 30x30mm Frame 3D Printer. For Proof of concept ("Can a 3D Printer Duplicate itself"). 6 X 11-3/4 inch print bed with 10-1/2 inch height. Using all thread for frame support, I have determined that although you can 3D print a Printer. without metal support you may never get a consistent prin...

Re: 3DP-17 Proximity Sensor Not Working Properly

Would like to help did some tests and could only duplicate the same results when using a SN04-P. could not duplicate using a SN04-N I am using a SN04-N, However I tested a SN04-P and get a similar effect. When you move metal closer to the sensor light gets brighter but remains on. I my case I was ab...

Re: Gaps in mid-layer

I had a similar problem not long ago, I have a PTFE lining inside the throat.

The PTFE had became deformed causing the extrusion to vary erratically.

I replaced the throat and Nozzle the faulty prints went away.
You may want to check to see if the nozzle or throat are partially clogged.

HEY GUYs! Just want to say thanks for being here for me. This build has been super fun up until the end and I'm almost printing but then hit a brick wall.
