Klipper 3D LCD?

Postby YellowGTO » 2019-Dec-Sat-10-Dec

Has anyone gotten the LCD to work with Klipper 3D firmware? I can't figure out the pin out.

Klipper was discussed here a couple years ago, with no mention of successful implementations (Printrbot or others), and nothing about LCDs. Sorry

There seems to be active Klipper site here, might be worth a look.

Personally I'd be looking at something like an E3 mini and not trying to deal with Klipper. Around a third the initial printrboard price, and half the post shutdown price, for a lot more capability, with the added bonus of TMC drivers. Hard to beat, less than a cased and powersupplied Pi. There's somebody on the Printrbot FacePlant group talking about supplying an adapter kit, too

Well you're in luck. Because I successfully flashed the firmware and have a PB+2.1 SCREAMING. Honestly the fastest the machines ever gone. Ill write up a howto once I get this screen to work properly (or give up).
