- FILAMENT MONITOR: Alarms and stops printing when filament is empty. Resumes printing once filament is replaced. Will save your time and filament by not having to reprint.
- IMPROVED PARTS: Includes newer T screw rods, injection X axis holders, 24V/15A power supply. Higher accuracy and stable printing is here.
- SUPPORT SEVERAL FILAMENTS: Prints PLA and higher temperature ABS, WOOD, HIPS, NYLON, FLEXIBLE, PC and PET-G. Print MANY filaments and not just PLA.
- CONTROL BOARD: Uses ATmega2560 with integrated RAMPS 1.4 onboard. Supports dual extruder. No need to buy another board to do upgrade.
- PRINTING SIZE: Prints max size of 10.6" x 7.9" x 7.0". No longer will you be limited to small models. Larger printings are waiting for you.

The difference is quite amazing. I've gone from only having a single semi successful print in 5 to 6 years of ownership on the old printer, to already printing 4 things successfully in a few days of ownership with this new one. The quality of the parts is very nice. The acrylic looks great, but be sure not to overtighten the screws or you could crack it. I may upgrade the acrylic to aluminum at some point (I am buliding a CNC that will be capable of cutting aluminum as well hehe), but it's sturdy as is. The instructions where mostly accurate, there were a few spots that were off a little but nothing to hard to figure out. Overall it probably took me about 6 hours of total time working on it to get it assembled and then another 30 minutes to calibrate everything and get my first print.
A few issues to note:
-The plug that came with the unit is 110v but EU standard coloring. It has no ground and no power switch which I was not crazy about. So I went to lowes and got a grounded 3 plug extension cord, cut off the outlet end to wire it up to the printer power supply, and added a 110v 20amp switch as well to easily cut the power without having to unplug it every time.
-There is a design flaw on this model, as other reviews have stated the filament holder support blocks access to the SD card slot on the back of the LCD. The company has a modified part to correct this and they sent me the STL file for it to make my own if I want. You can also get around this if you use a micro sd card and sd card adapter. There is enough room to remove the micro sd card from the adapter.
-The guide rail holes in the top pieces are slightly to small. I had to use a drill to open them up a little until the rods would fit through. Careful doing this though, do a little at a time, you don't want wobble in these rails.
-The heated bed warps a little when heated, it's thin aluminum, that is what happens. Smaller prints in one area work fine as is, but anything larger you'll probably want to use a sheet of glass over the top of it.
-I do have a problem with filament leaking out the top of the heating block. I've tried tightening it but haven't been able to get it to stop, although I'm wondering if it's partially due to the filament. It didn't seem to happen for some white filament I have, but did for the little bit of orange that came with the printer. HICTOP has already said they are sending me a new extruder tip, filament tube, and heating block to try and resolve it as well.
-The wires at the control board are a mess!! I'm going to be printing some kind of enclosure to house them soon lol.
All of these issues are overall fairly minor. That is why I only deducted one star for them.
I also want to comment on the support. I contacted them over a few issues, like a bad print on the turbine fan shroud, and a gouge mark on the heated bed. After sending them a picture of it, they have sent me replacements. I haven't actually gotten them in yet, but they are on the way. The were really responsive with other questions I had and a great help. Also, even though I believe they are based in China, their english is pretty good. So I'm very happy with the level of support I have received thus far from HICTOP.
All in all if you are looking for a lower cost 3D printer that works well, I'd highly recommend this one. I will update my review if anything changes, but with about 8 hours of printing on it so far everything is going well.
A big bag of left over parts is not necessarily a bad thing. They provide spares so don't freak when you discover you're done and still have parts left over.
Take care in connecting the power supply. Yep I connected to two COM instead of V+ and COM. My handy multimeter pointed out the dead machine issue right away. No biggie.
Run through the calibration video on their YouTube channel for the aluminum frame machine. It's a perfect fit for this machine.
The PDF assembly section of the X axis was a little off. It highlights that the guide rods should be flush with the right support. However it fails to mention that you may need to slide the support in to align it with the vertical guide rods.
The reel support assembly rod was two short. For now I just bent the supports in slightly. I'll purchase another threaded rod from home depot at a later date.
The screwed for the heat sink, fan, extruder assembly were to long. Remember that large bag of spare parts? Just use other screws.
The machine boot up showed max temp error. The FAQ on the CD provided proper instruction on replacing the thermistor with the spare provided.
Wiring cleanup went well with the provided loop. However the frame does have feed through holes on it. The PDF should provide examples on how to guide your wiring.
Some things the manufacturer may consider are;
Getting a better translator. Still the FAQ and the instructions were understandable.
Providing some getting started in 3D printing links. Not necessary but would help newbies like me. Google got me going fast enough though.
Providing some basic print parameters for this machine.
Overall this experience has been great. Would I build another? Probably not, but doing it once gives you a familiarity with the device you can't get from a prebuilt non customizable device. I'm already thinking of upgrades.
Would I recommend this device to others? Sure thing with just a caveat. Be prepared to take 2 days before your first print.
The photo is of my first print. The model comes on the CD and I scaled it down in CURA to 75% since I couldn't wait 2 hours for a full size version. I was blown away by how well it worked out.
