Creality Releaved The New “Sonic Pad” Based on Klipper
Creality revealed the new Sonic Pad last month, a Klipper-based gadget for 3D printing. The news came together with its first public reference to the new Ender-3 Neo series that is revitalizing its original Ender 3 product lines with modern hardware.
That’s all we know without a doubt. We guess it will be a single-board computer, as is called for to run Klipper’s software, with a 7-inch touchscreen running among the popular Klipper user interfaces such as Mainsail or Fluidd. However, in the meantime, that’s simply a guess.
This hardware coming straight from Creality Could significantly make the Klipper installment procedure easier and faster, at least for its own products. At the time being, most of Creality‘s LCD interfaces– such as those included on the Ender-3 V2–– are useless when Klipper is mounted. It’s honestly an excellent debate for the upcoming Ender 3 Neo to still have a monochrome 12864 display– those will work with Klipper– however, the Sonic Pad might provide a simple upgrade method.
Klipper is a unique 3D printer firmware that takes a different strategy from even more widely embraced software like Marlin by utilizing a 2nd tool more powerful than the 3D printer’s control board to deal with all the computational hefty lifting. The control board rather is utilized to carry out easy commands.
If we guess right that the Creality Sonic Pad is a handling device for Klipper, it can make Klipper even more obtainable for all, particularly those intimidated by its installation process. Klipper’s control board component installation is a piece of cake, just like flashing any 3D printer firmware, but the much more powerful processing component entails Klipper software installation called “Klippy” on a Linux-based gadget (usually a Raspberry Pi).
Yet, once more, this is all speculation. We’ll have to wait till Creality reveals a lot more details on its new Klipper to see what it is with any type of certainty.
