Klipper support


#1

Hi,

Is it possible to use the Klipper firmware with Astroprint on a Pi?


#2

I don’t actually know this firmware. Does it offer an interface compatible with Marlin?


#3

It is a Firmware that offloads all kinematic calculation to a Pi.
Can be used with Octoprint.


#4

Ok. I see now, something needs to be installed on the pi to communicate with the controller board. We will look at this as it gets more widespread and manufacturers start using.

You could in theory try it out yourself using our image, installing the Pi portion of Klippler and changing the serial port in /etc/astrobox/config.yaml to /dev/printer

I’ll give this a try as soon as my bed 3D printer build is done.
Thanks for pointing me towards the conf file.
