Clipper firmware

What exactly is firmware? Simply put, software that is used to control a specific embedded system. In our case, to control the board in a 3D printer. The most well-known and commonly used firmware in hobby 3D printers is Marlin firmware. Klipper … It's also firmware for 3D printers, but it works a little differently than Marlin.

Bigtreetech SKR 1.3

This board comes from a line of cheap Chinese 3D printer boards and is the successor to the SKR 1.1 board. The advantage of this board is a 32-bit microcontroller that handles more microstepping and many other advanced techniques that the 8-bit board can no longer handle.

Stepper drivers

3D printers use stepper motors. The name implies that the movement consists of individual steps. The most widely used motors use 200 steps, that is, 1 step = 1.8 degrees of rotation. If the printer moved in these large steps, it would tear, the print would not be so nice and it would also be very noisy because of the large vibration transmissions.
