Configuring_Klipper

Configuring Klipper is actually very easy to do. All changes happen on the host computer (such as the Pi) inside of the printer.cfg file in your home directory. An example config file would look like this:

# This file contains pin mappings for Prusa i3 MK3 printers. To use
# this config, the firmware should be compiled for the AVR atmega2560.

# See the example.cfg file for a description of available parameters.

# TODO: Just an estimate/test z_offset.  The offset will increase as the temperature
# increases.  The thermistor in the PINDA can be used to calibrate a set of values
# to change the offset based on PINDA temperature

The config file is broken up into sections by []. Under each of these sections is relevant configurations. For example, under [tmc2130 stepper_x] you can change settings such as running current, microstepping, distance per step, and homing speeds.

To apply changes made in the config file, issue the following command to Octoprint under the Terminal tab: RESTART
