Advantages of Klipper Firmware

by AdminMy Store 08 Apr 2024 0 Comments

Klipper firmware is an open-source 3D printer firmware that differs from traditional 3D printer firmware in that Klipper offloads the main computational tasks from the mainboard to an external single-board computer, thus providing more powerful and flexible features.

The advantages of Klipper firmware are mainly reflected in the following aspects:

  • Higher printing speed and accuracy:Due to the stronger computing power of the external single-board computer, Klipper firmware can perform motion planning and path generation faster, thereby improving printing speed and accuracy.
  • More powerful features:Klipper firmware supports a variety of advanced features, such as:

Pressure advance: can reduce nozzle oozing and improve model corner printing effects.

Input shaping: can improve printing speed and quality.

Automatic bed leveling: can automatically adjust the levelness of the print platform to ensure that the first layer of the printed model can be printed correctly.

Temperature control: can more accurately control the temperature of the print head and the hot bed.

  • More flexible configuration:Klipper firmware uses Python as the configuration file language, and users can modify and expand it according to their own needs.

Specifically, the advantages of Klipper firmware can be summarized as follows:

Performance advantages

  • Stable high step rate: Klipper can achieve a high step rate on new and old microcontrollers, with speeds up to 175,000 steps per second possible even with older 8-bit microcontrollers. On newer 32-bit microcontrollers, millions of steps per second can be achieved. A higher step rate allows for higher printing speeds, and even at high speeds, event timing remains accurate, improving overall stability.
  • Powerful computing power: Klipper offloads computational tasks from the mainboard to an external single-board computer, freeing up the mainboard's computing resources and allowing the mainboard to focus on controlling the printer's movement. In addition, the external single-board computer has stronger computing power and can support more complex computing tasks, such as:
    • Real-time motion control: Klipper can monitor the printer's motion status in real time and make adjustments as needed, ensuring stability during the printing process.
    • Advanced printing modes: Klipper supports a variety of advanced printing modes, such as:
      • Spiral mode: can improve printing speed and quality.
      • Pressure advance: can reduce nozzle oozing and improve model corner printing effects.
    • Higher printing speed: Klipper's printing speed can be much faster than traditional 3D printer firmware. Under ideal conditions, Klipper's printing speed can reach over 100 millimeters per second.
    • Higher printing accuracy: Klipper's printing accuracy can be much higher than traditional 3D printer firmware. Klipper can achieve a printing accuracy of 0.1 millimeters.

Functional advantages

  • Rich plugin ecosystem: Klipper has a large plugin ecosystem that allows users to install a variety of plugins to expand Klipper's functionality according to their needs. For example:
    • Automatic bed leveling: can automatically adjust the levelness of the print platform to ensure that the first layer of the printed model can be printed correctly.
    • Temperature control: can more accurately control the temperature of the print head and the hot bed.
    • Monitoring system: can monitor the printer's operating status and promptly notify the user of problems.
  • Support for multiple 3D printers: Klipper supports multiple types of 3D printers, including:
    • Cartesian: Cartesian coordinate system structure
    • CoreXY: CoreXY structure
    • Delta: Delta structure
    • H-bot: H-bot structure
    • SCARA: SCARA structure
  • Easy to use: Klipper's configuration interface is very simple and easy to understand, even for beginners.

In conclusion, Klipper firmware is a powerful and versatile 3D printer firmware that can help users improve printing speed and accuracy and get a richer printing experience.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
