The latest version of the Ultimaker Cura software slicer for 3D printers has a profile for the BIQU Hurakan 3D Printer available – make sure you download Cura 5.3 released a few days ago available on the Github repository of Ultimaker. Using Cura 5.3 now you can just start using your Hurakan 3D printer with the Klipper firmware along with the slicer without having to figure out what settings would work best or having to set a custom printer profile. The profile for the BIQU Hurakan has been contributed by Luke Harrison.

The BIQU Hurakan 3D Printer Profile in Cura is set for 120 mm/s printing speed by default (the suggested printing speed), although the printer should be capable of speeds up to 180 mm/s, so, you might want to try to increase the speed further. The results when printing at the default settings for the Hardukan with the Cura profile are quite good, so if you were having printing issues with a custom profile before you should definitely try the built-in profile.

The Cura 5.3 release of the popular slicer software for 3D printers does support not only the Hurakan 3D printer with Klipper from BIQU, but also the BIQU B1, BIQU B1 ABL and BIQU BX with built-in profiles that are ready to be used. The BIQU B1 ABL profile should be referring to the BIQU B1 SE printers that do come with automatic bed levelling functionality.

It is interesting to note that the print bed size for the X and Y axes on the BIQU Hurakan is set to 235x235cm and the build plate is indeed that size physical, even though the official specs for the device say 220x220cm as printing size. However, you probably would not want to print at the outer edges of the build plate anyway, though you should be able to if you wish to.

Aside from Cura slicer the official specifications for the Hurakan 3D printer from BIQU do mention compatibility with the Simplify3D software as well. Simplify3D is a commercial slicer for 3D printers unlike the free Cura software, meaning that you need to purchase a license to be able to use it. We have been using Simplify3D for quite some time already and have recently upgraded to the new Simplify3D 5.0 release, however while the software can work with the BIQU Hurakan there is no profile for it available even in the latest update 5.0.2, meaning that you need to set it by hand. You can use the available BIQU B1 3D Printer profile as a base to start from and then start tweaking the speed and other settings to get optimal results. Do note that Simplify3D uses numbers for printing speeds that are in mm/min and not millimetres per second, so, 120 mm/s in Cura would translate to 7200 mm/s (120 times 60 seconds) in Simplify3D.

Do note that although Simplify3D states that is officially supports the Biqu BX 3D printer there is no profile for it in version 5.0.2, the only profile for a BIQU 3D Printer is the one for the B1. Also, with a custom 3D printer profile we are working on for the BIQU Hurakan we can say that at this point the printing quality of the Cura slicer does seem to be a bit better compared to Simplify3D with very similar settings. So, we can suggest to stick to the Cura slicer when preparing your 3D models for printing on the BIQU Hurakan for now, there is no point in purchasing a license for Simplify3D.

Even though the software does have some really nice features it still needs to get proper support for the BIQU Hurrakan via an optimized profile to be worth the purchase for use with that particular printer. I’m working on optimizing the settings to figure out what works best in Simplify3D and as soon as there is a good profile, I’m going to share it for any users of Simplify3D, meanwhile you should stick with Cura 5.3 for the Hurakan as it is a good combination ready to be used.

The Hurakan 3D printer from BQ (Biqu) is the first more affordable solution to come out on the market with out-of-the-box Klipper firmware installed on it and ready to be used. The printer comes equipped with the BTT Manta M4P+CB1 main control board to ensure enough processing power that is required by the Klipper firmware in order to provide all the extra features that the firmware offers to the users. The Hurakan 3D Printer is an official cooperation with Klipper, and with it BQ is making it easier and more accessible to users that want to try out Klipper without the extra trouble of having to modify and install on an existing 3D printer. The price of the BIQU Hurakan 3D Printer is $399 USD at the moment, making it the most affordable option for a 3D printing solution that comes with Klipper pre-installed and ready to be used out-of-the-box, not that there are currently that many options with Klipper pre-installed apart from the Hurakan and the more expensive FLSUN V400 Delta 3D Printer.

Aside from Klipper support, the Hurakan 3D printer also comes with a nicer-looking dual-color design (blue and black), has automatic levelling built-in thanks to the BIQU MicroProbe sensor, a hotbed with dual heating zones (central and full) to maximize efficiency, a Filament Runout Sensor, Wired and Wireless printer operation and a whole lot of things that can be upgraded or added as features thanks to the nice extensibility of the Klipper firmware. There are a number of “official” upgrade options available from BIQU as well that you might want to explore to further improve and extend the printer’s functionality. I can understand that they were not included by default in order to allow for a lower initial cost of the device and having them as easy to add upgrades allow to offset the additional costs in the future, should you wish to do any upgrades at all that is. More about the upgrades in a bit as there is more to talk about the Hurakan before that…

BIQU Hurakan DIY 3D Printer looks a lot like an upgraded version of the entry-level BIQU B1 3D Printer that comes with a bit of a redesign and some new and interesting features as well as the added Klipper firmware pre-installed out of the box. Since the Klipper firmware has a quite the requirements in terms of processing power, one of the main things that a printer that will run it is to have a powerful-enough processing board such as a Raspberry Pi or the CB1 alternative used by BIQU and that is one of the main things that rises the price of the product over what the same device would cost with a simpler and much less powerful control board. Thanks to the Klipper firmware you get to take advantage of improvements in speed and quality of your prints, and the convenient and functional web-based printing and control interface together with the number of useful extra features make things much more enjoyable. And the printer does come mostly pre-assembled, so just a few components are needed to be attached and some cables connected and you should be quickly ready to start printing.

The BIQU Hurakan 3D printer comes with a 220x220x270mm build-volume, heated build plate, Bowden type of extruder with 0.4mm standard nozzle size and max printing temperature of 260 degrees Celsius. The printer is rated at up to 180mm/s printing speed, though the suggested one is just 60mm/s as per the official specs, though the latest manual has the number updated to 120mm/s. It is not the fastest 3D printer out there, but when you have everything up and running you should be able to print pretty fast and even hit the 180 mm/s on some prints… at least in theory, though this is something that needs to be tested. And thanks to the Klipper firmware not only should you be able to print faster, but also have good quality even at higher printing speeds saving you time.

The list of official upgrades for the printer that should help get better results and more functionality you can see on the image above. Interestingly enough the ADXL 345 accelerometer that should be included by default with the printer is listed as an upgrade and BIQU does not clearly state it is included in the package (maybe some printer packages do come without it. Then there is the H2 series of direct-drive extruders as opposed to the Bowden type that the 3D printer comes equipped with, an upgrade that might make it easier to work with more exotic materials including but not limited to abrasive, flexible and higher temperature ones. The Bowden type of extruders are known not to work well especially with flexible materials, so an upgrade of the extruder could be nice, however that would require more knowledge and time as it is not straight forward upgrade. There is also the five and sever inch HDMI displays with touch screen functionality, the dual Z upgrade kit adding a second motor for the Z axis, and an upcoming BIQU camera, though you may be able to use an existing USB-camera that you may already have with your 3D printer.

The Klipper 3D Printer Firmware is a next generation free and open-source 3D printer firmware developed by Kevin O’Connor that is intended to bring things to the next level by taking advantage of additional processing power provided by a Raspberry Pi or another single-board computer. Having more processing power than what a traditional 3D Printer motherboard running an older and inexpensive hardware with limited processing power allows you to do more things and do them better, optimizing the 3D printing process for more speed and precision… then there are some extra features being added on top of the quality improvement and speed improvement as well. Better and user-friendly moinitring and control interface with network connectivity of the printer, remote monitoring and control as an option, web-camera integration, LCD and touch-screen display support, automated bed-leveling and automatic delta calibration, full user control, custom programmable macros and so much more and since it is open source software it can be updated, upgraded and improved over time easily.

So, by using the newer Klipper 3D Printer Firmware on your 3D printer you should be able to get faster prints with better quality and access to a number of extra features (input shaping and pressure advance most notably). And the best of all is that if you already have a 3D printer that runs on the older Marlin firmware you are very likely to be able to get it to run the Klipper firmware and bring it in a more up-to-date condition, upgrading the processing speed and the quality of your prints. Do note however that the Klipper firmware is intended for people that are not new to 3D printers and 3D printing, especially if you are planning on upgrading from old Marlin firmware to the Klipper as it will require some hardware tweaking and upgrading as well as tinkering on the software side. But it is well worth it if you are interested in getting more out of your existing 3D printer and want to spend the time doing so, or if you are looking for a new one with Klipper out of the box or an easy to be upgrade to Klipper firmware there are some options as well.

Fortunately, we are starting to see some readily made 3D printers coming out with the Klipper 3D Printer Firmware pre-installed on them, so besides upgrading your old 3D printer to get the advantages and benefits of the Klipper firmware, you can also get a new one that runs Klipper. One of the first affordable such 3D Printers is the BIQU Hurakan DIY 3D Printer that can be found for sub $400 USD and the other option is the more expensive and larger and more feature rich out of the box FLSUN V400 Delta 3D Printer that is more like a sub $1000 USD. Upgrading your existing 3D printer to run Klipper might be much more cost effective if you have the needed knowledge or are eager to tinker with things and want to learn and experiment doing that.

There is another interesting alternative option also available and that is the Creality Sonic Pad device that was originally intended to bring Klipper support as an easy upgrade to Creality’s Ender 3 and Ender 5 as well as CR-series of 3D printers. Meanwhile the company has extended support for their product range and has also focused on allowing other printers to be used together with the Sonic Pad to be upgraded to support the Klipper firmware and get the features and improvements it offers. The Creality Sonic Pad is currently available for about $160 USD.

We have decided that it is time to “retire” our old Sailfish-based Replicator 2 and the Prisa i3 based on the Marlin firmware and get the new BIQU Hurakan DIY 3D Printer to star tinkering with Klipper out of the box and with the printer itself as it can take some improvements and upgrades on top of what you get by default. Of course, we are going to be sharing our experience with the BIQU Hurakan that comes with the Klipper pre-installed, so stay tuned for more about that printer and the Klipper firmware.
