Klipper Setup

Installation of the Cartographer Klipper Module

Clone the Klipper module from GitHub using the following commands, you then need to run our installation script.

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/Cartographer3D/cartographer-klipper.git
chmod +x cartographer-klipper/install.sh
./cartographer-klipper/install.sh

This step will automatically create a link to the script and place it in the klipper/klippy/extra directory.

If you are in Mainland China, use the following command:

cd ~
git clone https://gitee.com/ruchi/cartographer-klipper.git
chmod +x cartographer-klipper/install.sh
./cartographer-klipper/install.sh

Legacy Klipper environements running on Python2 will need updating to Python 3.9 or later. The easiest way to do that is a complete fresh install, though we do have a guide that can help that is linked here

Managing Updates via Moonraker

In order to keep up to date with our latest Klipper software, please add the following config to the bottom of your moonraker.conf file.

[update_manager cartographer]

path: ~/cartographer-klipper
channel: dev
origin: https://github.com/Cartographer3D/cartographer-klipper.git
env: ~/klippy-env/bin/python

For Mainland China:

[update_manager cartographer]
type: git_repo
path: ~/cartographer-klipper
channel: dev
origin: https://github.com/Cartographer3D/cartographer-klipper.git
env: ~/klippy-env/bin/python

upon completion, press SAVE & RESTART and it should now display in the update section of either Mainsail or Fluidd.

If you get "Repo is dirty. Detected the following modified files: ['install.sh']", a soft Recovery should fix it.
