Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

Postby Chaco » December 10th, 2016, 11:47 am

Since a few of you asked, Im sharing my good working RC8 Marlin firmware for my Hic 3DP-08

I am NOT as good at this firmware stuff as others may be. I only have 4-5 months of experience dealing with this. But at least i can attest that it works fine for my setup.

About hardware for this firmware settings.
Nema17 belt driven X and Y axis. (200 step motors, 16 micro step drivers)
Leadscrew driven Z axis. These are the Hic 8mm leadscrews with 4 starts and 2mm pitch. The OVERALL pitch is 8mm Z travel per revolution
E3Dv6 hot end with Bowden setup
Bowden is Nema17 with mk7 drive gear with a bearing against it.
Ramps 1.3 Red board (stock from Hic)
Stock Heated bed using the 100k temp sensor
Extruder heater element and heater sensor are the ones from E3D
Induction sensor is stock from Hic. The Omkon SN04-N. This is 30mm away from my hot end on the X axis. Z and Y are 0mm away.
LCD is the 20x4 character base
4x4 auto bed level probing

- Not responsible if you missed to make a critical change for YOUR setup and end up causing damage. Crashing nozzle into the bed for example. This firmware works for my setup, and just sharing it as a guide for others to build their version.
- Chip did a great job on his RC6 when it came to labels, and comment many of things changed, from previous to current numbers, and why. I did not do this since i edited this directly from source and didnt wanted to spend as much time adding comments.

Hope this helps and can get you guys going. Please feel free to add some feedback if i did something wrong, or can make something better.
Thanks folks.

Good to see that someone else is using RC8. I was planning to upgrade to RC8 today as I have a new 128x64 graphic LCD on the way and I want to try mesh bed leveling - if I'm going to muck around with that stuff then I might as well go to the latest firmware. I'll probably configure it from scratch so I can add comments as I go, but it'll be useful to be able to compare to the setup of another HicTop owner.

Up and running 1.1.0 RC8

Was a pain to get some of the features working due to me knowing almost nothing about Arduino prior to this printer.

So-far it has been fun but sure eating a lot of my spare time!!! :!:

I know it... i got a 12864LCD installed and it took me 90 minutes to figure out how to make it work....
I didnt know anything prior to my printer either, but i am a good self thought learner... and yes the 90 minutes was not around enabling the right comment... it was about making sure i disabled on configuration.h the "show bootscreen" that i had on my 2004LCD....

so far so good.... only thing i need to learn more is about accelerations... still confuses me that certain areas of the configuration uses mm/s and some uses mm/s^2....
