hictop prusa i3

Hi i just got given a hictop prusa i3 from my brother in law. the only thing that it needs a new extrude nozzle and the front support that the belt drives the table is snapped. i have looked all over google for another and unable to find it, also the brother inlaw said the nozzle kept getting jammed so probably has another underlining issue. he gave up and handed it to me.

Is the only way for parts to contact hictop? if so i tried there number with number not connected, i also live in Australia so probably has something to do with dialing codes.

I also have no instructions for setup, parts list, or software for this printer if someone could be so kind and help me out it would be much appreciated.

Im keen to do my first print. and if you haven't guess im new to 3d printers

It's probably a GT2 belt. Search for that on ebay, amazon, etc.

Oh, I misread. Sorry. I tried searching for one, but I couldn't find any off-the-shelf parts, but there seem to be quite a few printed versions like this:

Hi Jake,

the part that is broken is that the Front Panel or the Spanner for the Belt on the Front Panel??

If it's the Panel make a bleuprint (drawing) of it and take it to a company that can Watercut Acrillic or Lasercut Multipex.
