#My 3D Printer Configs
This is the configuration repository for my Ender 5 Pro running Klipper. Comes with GCode macros to make printing setup painless and consistent (for anyone who isn't me writing this initially).
- To set up Klipper, you'll need a single-board computer with internet connectivity and a USB C connector.
- For the computer, a Raspberry Pi Zero 2W should be sufficient.
- Make sure your power supply and cable fully supply the power demands of your computer.
- I highly reccomend covering the far right (+5V) lead on the USB port connecting the SBC to the printer with a very thin strip of electrical tape. This allows the screen to turn off and prevents accidentally starting a print with the printer turned off.
In order to provide user customization, Perl and M4 are used:
- On Windows: Strawberry Perl and GNUWin32 m4 should work
- On OSX, you can use XCode's CLI tools for
m4 and the pre-installed
- On Linux, use GNU
perl (usually packaged as
You'll also need a plain text editor to edit the configuration file.
- If you don't already have a preference, Geany and micro are solid choices for general text editing.
Finally, you'll need to install the Perl dependencies of your script.
- Install cpanminus` (it comes with Strawberry Perl by default)
- If you want to use local libraries, use local::lib
cpanm --install-deps .
- To allow for user customization, this repository comes with a configuration script.
- First, copy
config.m4 and edit the latter to your liking.
./configure.pl will allow you to preview
printer.cfg before you send it over.
- Next, you'll want to update
.env to reflect your Raspberry Pi's setup.
- Finally, you'll want to run
sync.pm with Perl to send your config over to the printer.
sync.pm with the
--help option for more info
start folder contains the start GCode to be added into their corresponding slicers.
end.gcode file contains the universal GCode for the end of print in all slicers.
