Klipper on a AnyCubic i3+ Prusa

by MaZe1973

Yesterday I have started with the installation of Klipper on a AnyCubic i3+ Prusa (my first time)

original TriGorilla board,
with original TMC A4988 stepper driver, without chnages in vref
original setup for the axis
original extruder and MK8
original display
Raspberry Pi 3B
Octoprint, latest version
Klipper latest version
new bearings ;-)

I had to configure the printer.cfg by my self, i didn't find in the web - hard work to find all necessary information like the pinout for the board and so on. Actually all axis, switches, display, heater for bed and noozle are running well. I have testet alle safety functions and checked PID Tune.
First test with 100mm/s was cool. 2nd test with 200mm/s was Impressive - with a nice surface!. It feels like having a new printer ;-) !!
Today I want to optimize the "Pressure Advanced" function, actually i have choosen some save values, and I will try to find out the max. usefull speed for the printer (becuase of the moving printer-bed).

Is there anyone who as tried Klipper on an old, printer like that? Someone who want to share his expirences?

Best regards.

Move exceeds maximum extrusion

by jshelley

Hi folks. I've written a little post processor to deal with the bug in Simplify3D which generates the bad gcode which triggers the dreaded "Move exceeds..." error. Anyone who's interested can have a look at

Unknown command:"OBJECT"

by markwinger

I keep seeing this message in the klipper message window. It does not seem to cause any problems, but I am curious about them. I also see this in the serial.log:
2020-03-30 11:51:50,693 - Recv: // Unknown command:"OBJECT"
I see lines like these in the gcode created by Cura:
@Object myfile.stl
It appears this is the origin of these messages. Is there a way to make klipper stop complaining about these?

Klipper on Ender 3

by dmb56

So far liking Klipper on the Ender 3 and Pi. The Ender was killing my SD cards frequently. Just using Octoprint solved that but was slow. Klipper got things faster and with virtual SD card even faster. Are some Gotcha's - No M600 filament change for one so multicolour signs out of repertoire for now.

Can you connect a z-probe to the raspberry pie and use Klipper to level your bed ?

Anet A8 and Klipper Firmware

by Knaudler

my Anet A8 works with original Board (v1)
with newest Marlin without Problems

flashing the Board with Klipper hex, works on original Anet Board
but only with 57600 Baud
so I had to flash a new Bootloader on the original Anet Board
using Optiboot - flashing with an AVR flasher
after this, the Board works with 250000 Baud

I think there is no need to flash better bootloader, but it works faster and optiboot is smaller

next Days I will write an Installation guide...
