can someone put me the printer.cfg valid for anet a8 with 3dtouch? I installed Klipper and I can not get the 3dtouch to work
I do not know anything about programming, that's why I need the printer.cfg

Hi Knaudler,

I'm interested in results. Did you already printed some test?
I'm planning to switch to klipper my TEVO Tarantula. I assume the main advantage of klipper is very high printing speed.
I expect to double it.

Can you tell your experience with it, please

yes speed is very good, Klipper works fine, but it is not final, there is a lot of testing and new functions every week
I'm using octopi with klipper
but some people using repetier server - because octoprint works to slow for Klipper !
repetier would be fast enough for Klipper - I will test next weeks...

yes the prints are very good - with pressure advance and some new settings
I have no bed leveling on Klipper - but I think they have some updates for using bed leveling...

I Have 2 Printers: CR-10 with Duetwifi and Anet A8 with Klipper - Anet prints good, but sometimes after update (git pull)
you have to test again
So anet and Klipper is for testing and cr-10 for printing

I think Klipper is a good way for speed, and CPU-intensive Kinematics but not yet for productive use
maybe you flash Klipper for testing and reflash with Marlin for always printing

Klipper Doku isnt the best, you have to read a lot on github
you can use octoprint with Klipper and same octoprint with Marlin (only change port and stop Klipper)

the printing with Klipper is great, fast and smooth - top
Klipper is good for more than 100mm/sec but my hotend isnt fast enough for more then 100
I think this will need an Volcano Hotend to smelt more and faster

I'm using original Anet Board - but need to flash new Bootloader - optiboot - to use Klipper
you have to flash klipper hex on printing board (from your raspberry Pi) - so you will erase your Marlin !
(with Arduino ide you have to reflash Marlin if you want back)

But if you need to buy raspberyy pi3+ and accessories and maybe tmc stepper for ramps - for same bucks you will get duet maestro

I'm waiting for new Duet 2 Maestro Board for buying in DE or EU (usa only) - its cheaper then duetwifi and enough for cartesian Printer
and Duet works without noise - steppers are very silent with onboard tmc

So Klipper is very good, it works fine, but it needs some time to get better

Thank you for answer.
Good to know it provides that speed with quality, ans Raspberry pi3+ is good enough. I already use Raspberry PI 3+ octopi.
I have only one printer now, so it is production one. So it might worth to wait for more mature klipper. But its development is pretty active and it should grow quick to production, I hope.
