    Have you tried fluiddpi? It has a really simple install to get you up and running quickly. Once you have that installed you can find a good config from the klipper docs for your ender 3 v2 (https://github.com/KevinOConnor/klipper/blob/master/config/printer-creality-ender3-v2-2020.cfg).

    Yes that's right you can't use my config file for an Ender 3 pro with the original mainboard. The difference are the pin mappings between the SKR and the original board. If you take a look in the Klipper config folder on Github you can find many example config files for example for the Ender with the board from 2018 or with a newer board from 2020: https://github.com/KevinOConnor/klipper/tree/master/config
  • Klipper and Cura usability fail or do I miss the logic?
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-24
    BTW, did you do the bed leveling / paper test pre-heated? According to the documentation it's recommended to do this at room temperature. I wonder if the observed difference is caused by doing the calibration with heated components.
  • Ender 5 Pro Klipper Issues with Starting Print
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-22
    At first glance there's some other obvious issues that pop out. Look over the Klipper Gcode to see what is and isn't supported. I see commands like M75, M420 and M900 in the start G-code that aren't supported by Klipper and I don't see a Macro for any of them. Unless I missed it, the only one you have is for G29. For setting the fade with M420, just use the cfg settings and remove that.

    Have you had a look at the Ender 5 default config?
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-22
    That config is wrong in regard to the board it is compiled for, and I'm not sure about the other settings. The Ender 3 Pro config here is good, just the directions and home locations have to change. That's what I did for my Ender 5 pro with the 4.2.2. I posted mine below

    You should also have a look at this document, and get rid of step_distance anyway. it's being phased out in favor of rotation_distance.https://github.com/KevinOConnor/klipper/blob/master/docs/Rotation_Distance.md
  • Printer keeps showing “move out of range”. Help appreciated.
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-17
    Those distances are calculated with "enhanced delta calibration" which I haven't done currently, will run it now. https://github.com/KevinOConnor/klipper/blob/master/docs/Delta_Calibrate.md#enhanced-delta-calibration
  • Bmg extruder tuning.
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-17
    How so? 415 steps of a 1.8° stepper feeds 1mm of filament out of a BMG. Calculations to derive rotational distance from steps per mm are provided in the Klipper documentation. Unless you have a gear ratio value entered, all you need is the calculated value, and you should only be using gear ratio if the stepper itself has a gear box (since the steps on the motor are not 1:1 with the output shaft. The extruder gearing itself is accounted for in the steps/mm to rotational distance calculation.).
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-17
    You can tune the extruder using the measure and trim procedure. https://github.com/KevinOConnor/klipper/blob/master/docs/Rotation_Distance.md#calibrating-rotation_distance-on-extruders

  • Some really basic usability questions before I switch
    reddit.com/r/klippers | 2021-02-13
    You could power it that way, it's only a 5v trace on AUX-1, but there are a few factors to take into account; The Pi requires at least 2.5 amps to run properly, so you will be putting strain on a 5v converter that isn't designed for that. The TFT screen should compatible with Klipper and you will be able to use it as a RepRap full graphics display (Klipper doesn't support color LCDs on the MCU, but you can connect any HDMI touch screen to the Pi and use KlipperScreen to control the printer from that) Link to a thread on how to make it work (scroll down) https://github.com/KevinOConnor/klipper/issues/2231. The other issue is that if you power your Pi down with the printer, you will need to turn that on before sending any files to it.
