Quick questions, I am assuming you have a stock Hictop 3DP03 3D Printer.

You have the standard threaded lead screw 8mm x 1.25.
And Still have end-stop switches and no Proximity sensors.
If you have made any changes from Stock post your changes or changes you wish to make at this time.

Yes, stock 3DP-03. I'm unsure of the lead screw pitch but they're the ones that came with the printer. Oh, I did add two mosfets so the bed and extruder heaters can draw power directly from the power supply instead of the main board.

An 8mm nut will screw onto the lead screw.

Would like to see that modification I could do that to my 3D Printers.

I can check the screw when I get home.

Here's the mosfets I used (2): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HEQVQAK/re ... Jzb4TTW6N4

Installation is easy and I designed and printed some simple mounts for them. I can answer any questions you may have about that :)

Areas of importance to get you running

Configuration.h
Configuration_adv.h
Pins_ramps.h

Today we are only interested in
Configuration.h

Unzip the downloaded Marlin file to a folder named "Marlin-RC8BF-HICi3"

open folder "Marlin-RC8BF-HICi3"
load "Marlin-RC8BF-HICi3.ino" into a newer version of Aduino.IDE will not compile right on older versions
Click on "Configuration.h" tab

This is where we will be changing the configuration.

Yes, it's the lead screw in the image you posted.

Everything's loaded in Arduino IDE and I can view data over the serial monitor.

Ok then we believe this is a T8-8 lead screw

changes to your Marlin Configuration.h file would look like this
// Z Axis 3200, / 8m pitch leadscrew = 200*16 /8 = 400 :: (STEPS_PER_REVOLUTION_Z / PITCH_OF_Z_ROD)
#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT { 80, 80, 398, 94.496214 }
#define DEFAULT_MAX_FEEDRATE { 150, 150, 5, 25 }
#define DEFAULT_MAX_ACCELERATION { 3000, 3000, 100, 3000 }

#define DEFAULT_XJERK 5.0
#define DEFAULT_YJERK 5.0

Do you have a SN04-N Proximity sensor bed sensor with this unit.

Done.

No, I do not.
