Klipper Camera, Light Bar and 32GB EMMC - The Best Unbox Setup You Should Do

The KINGROON KLP1, one of the most affordable Core-XY 3D Printer with Klipper firmware installed, has been improved a lot and now comes to its third version. It starts to use a brand-new extruder kit, who has a 9.5:1 gear ratio, and a whole new set of mainboard, THR board, THR cable and a CHC heating ring. Also, the print volume is now 230x230x210, cam print much larger objects now.

Recently we shared tutorial about Klipper Timelapse - Installation and Configuration, Klipper AI with Obico - Best Upgration for Your Klipper Printers, and the Klipper Mainboard - KINGROON KP Cheetah Mainboard. If you recently got the model, adding a light bar, a webcam and a 32GB EMMC during the setup is a great idea, so you can enjoy the time lapse video and AI detection directly after its setup.

The Light Bar

The light bar on a 3D printer can help you in many ways, especially for time lapse video taking and AI detection. For a core XY 3D printer with enclosure like KLP1, the light bar can help you observe the prints when printing ABS. Also, the environment light is no longer a problem, just turn off the light when you leave, the light bar takes care of your prints.

Once you removed all the 3 screws, have all the axis released, we can start the setup process. Find a right position on the right side, beneath the belt a little bit will be good, tear off the stick cover on the light bar, then put in on the inner wall. Then the light bar is totally fixed. It has a strong stick, you must make sure the position is good.
