Flsun is another maker of 3D printers that has an interesting solution for easily adding support for the Klipper 3D printer firmware to an existing 3D printer that user Marlin and is not readily capable of running Klipper. The Flsun Speeder Pad is a solution very similar to the Creality Sonic Pad both in terms of hardware and in terms of implementation. It is essentially a tablet-like solution that comes with a 7-inch touch-screen display (1024×600 pixels resolution) and a quad-core ARM processor providing the computing power required to use the Klipper firmware. In fact, this is the exact same solution that the company bundles with their FLSUN V400 High-Speed Delta 3D Printer with Klipper Firmware, but with the standalone Speeder Pad you have the option to add Klipper support to all other Flsun’s 3D printers and maybe some others as well.

The Flsun Speeder Pad device is priced at $149 USD on the official website, so it is kind of slightly more affordable than the Sonic Pad, however it does seem to be much less user friendly compared to Creality’s offer. Unless you are going to use it for Flsun Super Racer (SR), Flsun QQ S-Pro or Flsun Q5 3D where you have profiles available you might have issues figuring out how to use the other generic profiles for other brands of 3D printers that might be compatible (depending on their control board – stm103, 2560 or stm103 and stm401). Not well documented and certainly not for non-advanced users that are into Klipper already and can work out things on their own trying to make everything work as it should be. Still, if you are feeling adventurous or like to tinker around you might want to pick one of these and try to make it work with your 3D printer, again should be easier for Flsun’s products than others. Though even then you might want to go for the Sonic Pad instead.

While Creality does not yet offer a 3D printer with a built-in support for the Klipper 3D printing firmware it does however has a solution that kind of make it easier to get access to the Klipper firmware on your existing Creality 3D printer and on some others as well. The device comes in the form of a 7-inch touch-screen display (1024×600 resolution) with a built-in 64-bit computing platform, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM memory and WiFi and Ethernet network connectivity, though you connect it to your 3D printer through a USB cable (it can drive multiple 3D printers at the same time – 4 USB ports). The device not only provides you with Klipper support, but all the features it offers as well as upgrades the default display of the printer with a much more friendly and functional touch-screen interface, read on to find out more about what you get and how you can upgrade your 3D printer using the Creality Sonic Pad device.

The most essential upgrade that the Sonic Pad and the Klipper support is brings is the ability to print with higher speed while maintaining high-quality of your prints – resulting in faster print times without sacrifice of the quality of the 3D printed parts. Creality says 2 to 5 times faster printing speed with the same quality, though that greatly depends on the printer you are using and the model you are printing on it. This improvement of printing speed while maintaining good quality comes from the input shaper function of the Klipper firmware that do requires some extra work, doing some measurements of your printer with the included G-sensor (accelerometer) and you need to print a mount for the sensor too.

The Klipper firmware offers much more than just speed increase, it has lot more to offer in terms of features and improvements of functionality. Another very useful function is to be able to monitor and control your printer with Sonic Pad over the local network wirelessly through WiFi or with a cable Ethernet connection, especially useful if your 3D printer is only capable of printing from SD card, USB drive or through USB connection by default. There is also the ability to connect a webcam to monitor the printing process. And there is the CrealityCloud for remote monitoring and control, though that functionality is new and more limited to the number of supported devices for now apparently.

Creality’s Sonic Pad supports more than 20 of the company’s 3D printers including: Ender-5 S1, Ender-5 Pro, Ender-6, Ender-7, Ender-3 Max Neo, CR-10, CR-10 S4, CR-10 S5, CR-10 Smart Pro, CR-6 MAX, CR-6 SE, Ender-3 Pro, Ender-5 Plus, Ender-3 Max, Ender-3 S1 Plus, CR-10 Smart, CR-10S Pro V2, CR-10 V3, Ender-3 V2, Ender-3 V2 Neo, Ender-3 S1 and Ender-3 S1 Pro. These do come with pre-configured settings, so you can quickly and easily generate a firmware update for your 3D printer from the Sonic Pad, update it and then start using the new Klipper functionality. This is probably one of the easiest and not to mention the most affordable option for adding Klipper support to any of the Creality 3D printers as the Sonic Pad is priced at $159 USD and it combines the needed extra processing power and a touch-screen display in one relatively easy to use device.

There is also support for some other non-Creality 3D printers and you can customize it for others as well based on the control board your device may be using, though if you are upgrading a non-Ceality 3D printer with Klipper using the Sonic Pad you should check if other users were successful doing so before actually getting the device. Configuring manually a not officially supported 3D printer might be harder for non-experienced users, though using the external Sonic Pad might still be much easier than upgrading the internal hardware of your 3D printer with Klipper-capable one and probably more affordable.

Here is another one of the still very few 3D Printers on the market that comes with the Klipper firmware pre-installed and ready to be used by the user – the FLSUN V400, similar to the BIQU Hurakan 3D Printer with Klipper firmware. The V400 3D Printer from FLSUN is a bit different in terms of hardware however and also has a different approach to using the Klipper 3D printer firmware as well compared to what BIQU did, so let me go into a bit more detail on that now…

The FLSUN V400 is a high-speed Delta 3D printer unlike the Cartesian-style 3D printer that is the Harukan from BIQU and the type of 3D printer here refers to the what that the printer head and build plate moves during operation. With Cartesian 3D printers like the Hurakan we have the build plate moving in the X and Y axis and the print head moving on the Z axis, with Delta 3D printers like the V400 however the print head is attached to three arms in a triangular configuration that can individually move only up and down and synchronizing their movement the printing head can move in all the three axes as well. The build plate on Delta printers like the V400 does not move, only the printing head is moved around while printing. Generally, the Delta 3D printers are able to achieve faster printing speeds compared to Cartesian 3D printers and the V400 is no exception here, but combining a Delta style 3D printer with the Klipper firmware allows for even faster speeds while retaining good quality.

The very fast printing speed is one of the key things when talking about the FLSUN V400 3D printer as it is capable of working with up to 400mm/s printing speed according to the official specifications and that is really fast… the Cartesian-style Hurakan for instance is rated at up to 180 mm/s max and is still considered very fast. In fact, the FLSUN V400 is probably one of the fastest open-source and affordable 3D printers out there, and it comes with the Klipper firmware and a nice set of features including a large build volume (a round build plate with a diameter of 300mm and height up to 410mm), auto-leveling and filament sensor, direct-drive extruder capable of operating at up to 300 degrees Celsius and a 7-inch touch-screen display for printing info and control.

The approach to providing Klipper firmware support on the FLSUN V400 is a bit different as already mentioned as here the extra computing hardware is not inside as a part of the main control board of the printer like with the Hurakan, but instead is taken outside and packaged together with a 7-inch touchscreen display. FLSUN calls this “device” the Speeder Pad and it is also available separately as an addon for other of their 3D printers and apparently is also compatible with some other brands allowing them to be easily upgraded to support the Klipper firmware. The Speeder Pad is however a part of the standard V400 configuration, so it will work out of the box (other printers will require firmware updates) allowing you to quickly and easily start working with the 3D printer and utilizing the features provided by Klipper firmware though the display of the Speeder Pad or via network connectivity through the web-based interface available.

There is another company out there that offers a very similar approach to adding Klipper firmware to their 3D printers and to others as well and that is Creality and their Sonic Pad, however they do offer this as an optional upgrade only and the company does not have at this time a 3D printer that does come out of the box with the Klipper firmware pre-installed. That is probably just a matter of time before they start bunding the Creality Sonic Pad with a compatible Ender 3D printer for instance and having it ready to work out of the box.

The FLSUN V400 3D printer with Klipper firmware pre-installed is priced at $849 USD on the official website, though you can find it on Amazon for just a slightly more with a faster delivery. That price is definitely not what an entry-level 3D printer costs and the V400 is not one of these anyway, for more affordable starting option with Klipper the BIQU Hurakan is much better alternative as it comes at less than half the price of V400. The FLSUN V400 however not only offers much faster printing speeds (one of the fastest out there) and larger build volume, but also other improvements such as direct-drive extruder that is better in terms of material compatibility compared to Bowden and that can print at higher temperatures, larger touchscreen display for monitoring and controlling the 3D printer. So, the FLSUN V400 is a more expensive solution with Klipper firmware out of the box, but it also offers more in terms of what you get compared to Hurakan, so, if you are looking for a larger and faster 3D printer with Klipper support out of the box the V400 is the better option.

It is interesting to note that the FLSUN V400 is kind of like an upgraded FLSUN Super Racer Delta 3D printer (rated at 200mm/s printing speeds), building on top of that already very good foundation and adding Klipper support as well. If you already own the Super Racer 3D printer you can upgrade it with the Speeder Pad to support Klipper as well and turn it even faster almost like V400, but not quite the same. Printing speeds of about 300-350mm/s should be achievable with just a ~$150+ upgrade that should be done relatively easy, however do note that the FLSUN SR uses a Bowden type and not a direct-drive extruder unlike the V400!
