  • That might be a good idea. I think everyone runs into a little experimenting with bed mesh and offsets. Probably the best suggestion is to start with a small area and then make changes to see how the numbers work. I measured my bed and put masking tape on the center lines, then marked the center and adjusted home until I hit that mark after that start with the max and min for bed mesh and mark those positions make a change to one value and mark the new location. You can quickly make the changes to the printer.cfg and after some experimenting get your mesh perfect.

    • I calibrated the esteps called Rotation in Klipper. Took me s while to find the proper procedure but when I did it was pretty easy to follow. https://www.klipper3d.org/Rotation_Distance.html Mine was under extruding. I then did a PID tune on the extruder and bed then off to print some more squares. The 1st one looked better than the last one from yesterday. I then used a suggestion form TH3D for the 1st layer set up using the EZABL 1st layer width 150%, 1st layer height 0.3mm, speed 20mm/sec. I then sliced and printed that square. It looks really nice in my opinion. Put the 1st layer setting from PrusaSlicer into Ideamaker sliced and printed another square. It came out okay but I don't think it quite as good as the PS one.

      I then decided to print a real model, I need a handle for a kids toy bucket that great grandma broke yesterday, it's on the printer now. Sliced it with PrusaSlicer to keep the playing field level for now. When I get upstairs to the MacBook I'll upload some photos that I took on the iPhone and need converted.

      • This is my 1st Klipper print, I think ti came out pretty good.

        • Way to go Gramps. It looks really good. Is it PLA or PETG, or something else?

          • Thanks Ender5r it's been a learning experience for sure. Marlin all I did was tell it what board I was using and a couple of other things and compiled and that was it. Setting the z-offset with baby steps plus you could baby step live seemed easier to me but maybe not. It took em a while to get the EXABL setup too. I'm sure that the tunnel would have been a lot longer without the yours, Dave's and others help. The handle was printed with Coex PLA.

            • Klipper does have a bit of a learning curve, but the benefits are something else. Wait til you get to Input Shaping and Pressure Advance. They made sooo much difference to the quality of my prints, and that's while printing twice as quickly.

              BTW, if the PLA handle turns out to be too brittle and cracks, try it again in PETG. It's stronger but, more imporantly, it's more resilient.

              • Grandma keeps breaking the pins off the stock ones, so far she hasn't broken any that I have made but will keep the PETG in mind. I've printed a couple of things with it but it's been a looooooong time. I just recently started printing in TPU I'm really enjoying it this time around. Last time I tried printing with it the results were terrible.

I wonder if all the suggestions from this post and my post that talks about move errors should be combined in to a Klipper problem thread.
                  Personally I wish Irv would setup a Klipper/Fluidd/Mainsail Forum and move the current Klipper threads to it. That would put all the information in one place. Your idea is a good one to but unless it was pinned I think it would get lost if there wasn't a lot of activity to keep it near the top. Maybe Ender5r will index this thread with all the Klipper trouble shooting tips.

                  I think issue just come with Klipper, I read through this thread before I started and still had issues. Between here and searching the WWW I was able to work through them. I think my biggest hurdle was the backwards math. But I guess it all depends on how you look at it and what your use to.

                  • Ran across this on Reddit, another way to check Pressure Advance with Klipper using the Marlin method. https://advanced3dprinting.com/linea...-tool-klipper/
                    I haven't tried this yet but will in the near future
