#define INVERT_X_DIR true

If it is only occurring in Simplify3d, check your settings and see what GCode is being produced, Make sure it is sending to 0,0,0 and that home is defined as 0,0,0 and not center of the bed. I do not use Slimplify3d so not sure the available settings.



Thanks Joel I will give that a go, to find out what happens. I got a .hex code fomr HICTOP fdor the printer, do you know how to load this into
Adruino.

Ive just checked and moving the x axis + moved left, but cant move right? How do i manually change the stepper pins?

Thanks Stu

Dear all,

Thanks a lot for this awesome job.

I recently bough this version of the Hictop prusa I3 (3DP17) with filament monitor and auto leveling. I would like to know if this firmware is fully compatible with my version of the printer.

If yes, could you kindly write (again) the link of the firmware and all necessary documents.

Thanks a ton.

I have attached the OEM firmware for the Model 3DP-17 (this is NOT Marlin 1.1.0-RC8 !!!) from HICTOP. This is for firmware development purpose only, use at your own risk.

I recently purchased the Hic i3 3DP08 with the auto leveling sensor. Now after trying some of the config file that have been posted here I am still un able to get things to work right. I will admit this coding is not in my wheel house. Here is what I'm trying to accomplish:
1) enable eeprom (so I can enter values through the LCD).
2) auto bed leveling (the supplied file "Marlin_3DP12_398.cpp.hex" file allows this, but I can't edit it).
3) load and save options from the LCD

Looking for any help from the experts.

Thanks

Again gang,

I posted the last updates to the Marlin that I am running on my printer and all except bed leveling is enabled in the code. Based on official Github Marlin source code, RC6. That code has been running on my printer for over 6 months with no issues. The original link to the thread for downloading that particular version and the change log is still here :: viewtopic.php?f=51&t=298.

There are several other members here that have posted their source code, I have not looked at any of it.

Chip

I have "maybe" the latest firmware from hictop 3dp-12. Got it on email last night.

I am featurin Chip Luck*s firmware against theirs and Chip has everything more simple and clear I think.

Chip what sensor are you using on Z-axis? as probe? I have SN04-N
I am asking because your code is

Code: Select all

#define X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 10  // X offset: -left  +right  [of the nozzle]
  #define Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 10  // Y offset: -front +behind [the nozzle]
  #define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER 0   // Z offset: -below +above  [the nozzle]


and hictop

Code: Select all

  #define X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -10
  #define Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -10
  #define Z_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -0.5


so I am not sure which one to use.
Allthough I read the SN04-N specs its NO sensor with starting from 6v-36v range but if I am correct the board only delivers 5v to it?
That might change accuracy when on aluminium bed right?
