Klipper on Ultimaker 3?

Posted · Klipper on Ultimaker 3?



I only realized after buying my current Ultimaker 3 Extended that its marlin implementation is kinda lacking, for example no linear advance and some other smaller things. What i hoped to help was the Tinkergnome firmware but it doesn't work on the UM3.

I just realised, the board is a somewhat standard RAMPS type board with the classical ATmega 8bit chip and the firmware is based on Marlin so does anobody know if I could get klipper to work with it? Has perhaps anybody had any success with this?

    I don't think it is impossible, but it will be a lot of work and you will loose some functionality (such as automatic filament detection, printcore detection, the Digital Factory). Other functionality you will likely have to reimplement from scratch (tool changing, nozzle offset calibration, material changing).

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
