TwoTrees SK1 review – A CoreXY 3D printer with high printing speeds

Two Trees SK1 3D Printer Review

TwoTrees SK1 is an FDM 3D printer with a working area of 256 x 256 x 256 mm and a CoreXY system that can print 3 to 5 times faster than a typical 3D printer. The movements of a CoreXY 3D printer are achieved by moving two motors simultaneously. The TwoTrees SK1 CoreXY 3D printer can print at a maximum speed of 700 mm/s and features automatic Z-Tilt base leveling with a 36-point mesh bed. The print head uses a dual-gear direct extruder to feed the filament directly to the nozzle and the nozzle supports up to 300 degrees Celsius. The printer also comes preloaded with the popular Klipper firmware. TwoTrees SK1 specifications Printing size – 256 x 256 x 256 mm Dimensions – 400 x 400 x 530 mm Printing speed – Up to 700mm/s Acceleration – Up to 20,000 mm/s2 Nozzle temperature – Up to 300ºC Guide rail […]

ELEGOO OrangeStorm Giga is an enormous 3D printer that supports up to four nozzles (Crowdfunding)

ELEGOO OrangeStorm Giga

If you’ve found yourself frustrated more than once because the build volume of your 3D printer was too small for your prints, the ELEGOO OrangeStorm Giga should meet most people’s requirements as the enormous 3D printer offers an 800 x 800 x 1,000mm building volume, and can also be fitted with four nozzles and filament spools to print multiple objects at the same time. Besides the ability to print larger objects and multiple objects, you won’t need to find a table for it, since the gigantic 3D printer would typically be installed on the floor. Those large 3D printers have been available to businesses for years, but it’s the first time I’ve seen a consumer-grade 3D printer with those dimensions! ELEGOO OrangeStorm Giga specifications: Build Volume – 800 x 800 x 1,000mm Nozzle Maximum Temperature – 300°C Nozzle Diameter – 0.6mm Number of nozzles – 1, expandable to 4 Hot […]

Review of BIGTREETECH Pad 7 Klipper pad with Creality Ender-3 Pro S1 3D printer

Creality Ender-3 S1 Pro + BIGTREETECH Pad 7 Benchy 3D printing

I received the BIGTREETECH Pad 7 7-inch Klipper pad and tablet PC for review earlier this month. I’ve already tested it with a Raspberry Pi CM4 as a Linux tablet PC with touchscreen, and I’ve now reinstalled the BTT CB1 Allwinner H616 system-on-module to run the pre-install Klipper OS and connect the Pad 7 to a Creality Ender-3 Pro S1 3D printer. When I first booted the Pad 7 it ended up with an error message from Klipper complaining about a missing configuration file. I connected to WiFi and update all software packages, but it didn’t help. It’s just because the Pad 7 needs to be configured for a specific printer. We can do so through the web dashboard accessible through a web browser going to http://btt-pad7.local (unless you’d changed the hostname in the system) We’ve got the same error shown in the web interface as Klipper needs to be […]

BIGTREETECH Pad 7 7-inch 3D printer control display runs Klipper on Allwinner H616 SoM or Raspberry Pi CM4

BIGTREETECH Pad 7 Settings

Yesterday, I wrote about the BTT Pi V1.2 Allwinner H616 SBC designed for 3D printers, but also mentioned I had received the Pad 7 from BIGTREETECH which is a software-compatible, but more complete solution with a 7-inch display and an Allwinner H616-powered CB1 system-on-module compatible with the Raspberry Pi CM4. The BIGTREETECH Pad 7 should be more convenient to use with its integrated 7-inch touchscreen display, and if you ever decided you didn’t need it to control your 3D printer anymore, it could always be used as a small Linux computer running Raspberry Pi OS or another operating system. BIGTREETECH Pad 7 specifications: Supported modules BIGTREETECH CB1 v2.2 (included in the kit) – Allwinner H616 quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU, 1GB RAM, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi 4 Raspberry Pi CM4 module with Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 CPU with VideoCore IV GPU, 1 to 8GB RAM, 0 to 32GB eMMC […]

BIGTREETECH Pi v1.2 – A Raspberry Pi-sized Allwinner H616 SBC for 3D printers

Allwinner H616 BTT Pi v1.2 SBC

BIGTREETECH Pi v1.2, also known as the BBT Pi v1.2, is a Raspberry Pi-sized Allwinner H616 single board computer (SBC) specially designed for 3D printers with many of the same ports as the Raspberry Pi 3/4, but also features 12V-24V DC power input and connectors for the ADXL345 3-axis accelerometer, CAN Bus, and so on. The board is equipped with 1GB RAM, a microSD card slot to run the operating system (Debian 11 with Klipper), a 4K capable micro HDMI port, Fast Ethernet and WiFi 4 networking, four USB ports, and the usual 40-pin Raspberry Pi header. BTT Pi specifications: SoC – Allwinner H616 quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 @ 1.5GHz with Arm Mali G31 MP2 with support for OpenGL ES 3.2 System Memory – 1GB DDR3L SDRAM Storage – MicroSD card slot Video Output Micro HDMI 2.0a port up to 4Kp60 resolution SPI port for display Audio – 3.5mm audio jack […]
