About the Models

The HICTOP Prusa i3 is a Prusa i3 variant by HIC Technology, a Chinese 3D printer fabrication company. There are two variants from HICTOP, the Acrylic High Accuracy Aurora and the Aluminum Frame, with the only difference being the frame material and a slightly taller printing area for the former.

Known Issues

HICTOP ships some of the printers with incorrect firmware. The below firmware marks the z-step for 394 steps/mm when it should be 2560 steps/mm. The downloads section has the fixed aftermarket firmware.

IF YOUR PRINTER WORKS FINE DO NOT INSTALL THIS FIRMWARE. IT IS ONLY AN ISSUE ON SOME.
