This document describes the commands that Klipper supports. These are commands that one may enter into the OctoPrint terminal tab.
Klipper supports the following standard G-Code commands:
- Move (G0 or G1):
G1 [X<pos>] [Y<pos>] [Z<pos>] [E<pos>] [F<speed>]
- Move to origin:
G28 [X] [Y] [Z]
- Turn off motors:
- Wait for current moves to finish:
- Use absolute/relative distances for extrusion:
- Use absolute/relative coordinates:
- Set position:
G92 [X<pos>] [Y<pos>] [Z<pos>] [E<pos>]
- Set speed factor override percentage:
- Set extrude factor override percentage:
- Set acceleration:
M204 P<value> T<value>
- Note: If S is not specified and both P and T are specified, then the acceleration is set to the minimum of P and T. If only one of P or T is specified, the command has no effect.
- Get extruder temperature:
- Set extruder temperature:
M104 [T<index>] [S<temperature>]
- Set extruder temperature and wait:
M109 [T<index>] S<temperature>
- Note: M109 always waits for temperature to settle at requested value
- Set bed temperature:
- Set bed temperature and wait:
- Note: M190 always waits for temperature to settle at requested value
- Set fan speed:
- Turn fan off:
- Emergency stop:
- Get current position:
- Get firmware version:
For further details on the above commands see the RepRap G-Code documentation.
Klipper's goal is to support the G-Code commands produced by common 3rd party software (eg, OctoPrint, Printrun, Slic3r, Cura, etc.) in their standard configurations. It is not a goal to support every possible G-Code command. Instead, Klipper prefers human readable "extended G-Code commands".
If one requires a less common G-Code command then it may be possible
to implement it with a custom
gcode_macro config section. For
example, one might use this to implement:
G-Code SD card commands¶
Klipper also supports the following standard G-Code commands if the virtual_sdcard config section is enabled:
- List SD card:
- Initialize SD card:
- Select SD file:
- Start/resume SD print:
- Pause SD print:
- Set SD position:
- Report SD print status:
In addition, the following extended commands are availble when the "virtual_sdcard" config section is enabled.
- Load a file and start SD print:
- Unload file and clear SD state:
The following standard G-Code commands are available if a gcode_arcs config section is enabled:
- Controlled Arc Move (G2 or G3):
G2 [X<pos>] [Y<pos>] [Z<pos>] [E<pos>] [F<speed>] I<value> J<value>
G-Code firmware retraction¶
The following standard G-Code commands are available if a firmware_retraction config section is enabled:
G-Code display commands¶
The following standard G-Code commands are available if a display config section is enabled:
- Display Message:
- Set build percentage:
Other available G-Code commands¶
The following standard G-Code commands are currently available, but using them is not recommended:
- Get Endstop Status:
M119(Use QUERY_ENDSTOPS instead.)
Extended G-Code Commands¶
Klipper uses "extended" G-Code commands for general configuration and
status. These extended commands all follow a similar format - they
start with a command name and may be followed by one or more
parameters. For example:
SET_SERVO SERVO=myservo ANGLE=5.3. In this
document, the commands and parameters are shown in uppercase, however
they are not case sensitive. (So, "SET_SERVO" and "set_servo" both run
the same command.)
The following standard commands are supported:
QUERY_ENDSTOPS: Probe the axis endstops and report if they are "triggered" or in an "open" state. This command is typically used to verify that an endstop is working correctly.
QUERY_ADC [NAME=<config_name>] [PULLUP=<value>]: Report the last analog value received for a configured analog pin. If NAME is not provided, the list of available adc names are reported. If PULLUP is provided (as a value in Ohms), the raw analog value along with the equivalent resistance given that pullup is reported.
GET_POSITION: Return information on the current location of the toolhead.
SET_GCODE_OFFSET [X=<pos>|X_ADJUST=<adjust>] [Y=<pos>|Y_ADJUST=<adjust>] [Z=<pos>|Z_ADJUST=<adjust>] [MOVE=1 [MOVE_SPEED=<speed>]]: Set a positional offset to apply to future G-Code commands. This is commonly used to virtually change the Z bed offset or to set nozzle XY offsets when switching extruders. For example, if "SET_GCODE_OFFSET Z=0.2" is sent, then future G-Code moves will have 0.2mm added to their Z height. If the X_ADJUST style parameters are used, then the adjustment will be added to any existing offset (eg, "SET_GCODE_OFFSET Z=-0.2" followed by "SET_GCODE_OFFSET Z_ADJUST=0.3" would result in a total Z offset of 0.1). If "MOVE=1" is specified then a toolhead move will be issued to apply the given offset (otherwise the offset will take effect on the next absolute G-Code move that specifies the given axis). If "MOVE_SPEED" is specified then the toolhead move will be performed with the given speed (in mm/s); otherwise the toolhead move will use the last specified G-Code speed.
SAVE_GCODE_STATE [NAME=<state_name>]: Save the current g-code coordinate parsing state. Saving and restoring the g-code state is useful in scripts and macros. This command saves the current g-code absolute coordinate mode (G90/G91), absolute extrude mode (M82/M83), origin (G92), offset (SET_GCODE_OFFSET), speed override (M220), extruder override (M221), move speed, current XYZ position, and relative extruder "E" position. If NAME is provided it allows one to name the saved state to the given string. If NAME is not provided it defaults to "default".
RESTORE_GCODE_STATE [NAME=<state_name>] [MOVE=1 [MOVE_SPEED=<speed>]]: Restore a state previously saved via SAVE_GCODE_STATE. If "MOVE=1" is specified then a toolhead move will be issued to move back to the previous XYZ position. If "MOVE_SPEED" is specified then the toolhead move will be performed with the given speed (in mm/s); otherwise the toolhead move will use the restored g-code speed.
PID_CALIBRATE HEATER=<config_name> TARGET=<temperature> [WRITE_FILE=1]: Perform a PID calibration test. The specified heater will be enabled until the specified target temperature is reached, and then the heater will be turned off and on for several cycles. If the WRITE_FILE parameter is enabled, then the file /tmp/heattest.txt will be created with a log of all temperature samples taken during the test.
TURN_OFF_HEATERS: Turn off all heaters.
TEMPERATURE_WAIT SENSOR=<config_name> [MINIMUM=<target>] [MAXIMUM=<target>]: Wait until the given temperature sensor is at or above the supplied MINIMUM and/or at or below the supplied MAXIMUM.
SET_VELOCITY_LIMIT [VELOCITY=<value>] [ACCEL=<value>] [ACCEL_TO_DECEL=<value>] [SQUARE_CORNER_VELOCITY=<value>]: Modify the printer's velocity limits.
SET_HEATER_TEMPERATURE HEATER=<heater_name> [TARGET=<target_temperature>]: Sets the target temperature for a heater. If a target temperature is not supplied, the target is 0.
ACTIVATE_EXTRUDER EXTRUDER=<config_name>: In a printer with multiple extruders this command is used to change the active extruder.
SET_PRESSURE_ADVANCE [EXTRUDER=<config_name>] [ADVANCE=<pressure_advance>] [SMOOTH_TIME=<pressure_advance_smooth_time>]: Set pressure advance parameters. If EXTRUDER is not specified, it defaults to the active extruder.
SET_EXTRUDER_STEP_DISTANCE [EXTRUDER=<config_name>] [DISTANCE=<distance>]: Set a new value for the provided extruder's "step distance". The "step distance" is
rotation_distance/(full_steps_per_rotation*microsteps). Value is not retained on Klipper reset. Use with caution, small changes can result in excessive pressure between extruder and hot end. Do proper calibration steps with filament before use. If 'DISTANCE' value is not included command will return current step distance.
SET_STEPPER_ENABLE STEPPER=<config_name> ENABLE=[0|1]: Enable or disable only the given stepper. This is a diagnostic and debugging tool and must be used with care. Disabling an axis motor does not reset the homing information. Manually moving a disabled stepper may cause the machine to operate the motor outside of safe limits. This can lead to damage to axis components, hot ends, and print surface.
STEPPER_BUZZ STEPPER=<config_name>: Move the given stepper forward one mm and then backward one mm, repeated 10 times. This is a diagnostic tool to help verify stepper connectivity.
MANUAL_PROBE [SPEED=<speed>]: Run a helper script useful for measuring the height of the nozzle at a given location. If SPEED is specified, it sets the speed of TESTZ commands (the default is 5mm/s). During a manual probe, the following additional commands are available:
ACCEPT: This command accepts the current Z position and concludes the manual probing tool.
ABORT: This command terminates the manual probing tool.
TESTZ Z=<value>: This command moves the nozzle up or down by the amount specified in "value". For example,
TESTZ Z=-.1would move the nozzle down .1mm while
TESTZ Z=.1would move the nozzle up .1mm. The value may also be
--to move the nozzle up or down an amount relative to previous attempts.
Z_ENDSTOP_CALIBRATE [SPEED=<speed>]: Run a helper script useful for calibrating a Z position_endstop config setting. See the MANUAL_PROBE command for details on the parameters and the additional commands available while the tool is active.
Z_OFFSET_APPLY_ENDSTOP: Take the current Z Gcode offset (aka, babystepping), and subtract it from the stepper_z endstop_position. This acts to take a frequently used babystepping value, and "make it permanent". Requires a
SAVE_CONFIGto take effect.
TUNING_TOWER COMMAND=<command> PARAMETER=<name> START=<value> [SKIP=<value>] [FACTOR=<value> [BAND=<value>]] | [STEP_DELTA=<value> STEP_HEIGHT=<value>]: A tool for tuning a parameter on each Z height during a print. The tool will run the given
COMMANDwith the given
PARAMETERassigned to a value that varies with
Zaccording to a formula. Use
FACTORif you will use a ruler or calipers to measure the Z height of the optimum value, or
STEP_HEIGHTif the tuning tower model has bands of discrete values as is common with temperature towers. If
SKIP=<value>is specified, the tuning process doesn't begin until Z height
<value>is reached, and below that the value will be set to
START; in this case, the
z_heightused in the formulas below is actually
max(z - skip, 0). There are three possible combinations of options:
FACTOR: The value changes at a rate of
factorper millimeter. The formula used is
value = start + factor * z_height. You can plug the optimum Z height directly into the formula to determine the optimum parameter value.
BAND: The value changes at an average rate of
factorper millimeter, but in discrete bands where the adjustment will only be made every
BANDmillimeters of Z height. The formula used is
value = start + factor * ((floor(z_height / band) + .5) * band).
STEP_HEIGHT: The value changes by
STEP_HEIGHTmillimeters. The formula used is
value = start + step_delta * floor(z_height / step_height). You can simply count bands or read tuning tower labels to determine the optimum value.
SET_DISPLAY_GROUP [DISPLAY=<display>] GROUP=<group>: Set the active display group of an lcd display. This allows to define multiple display data groups in the config, e.g.
[display_data <group> <elementname>]and switch between them using this extended gcode command. If DISPLAY is not specified it defaults to "display" (the primary display).
SET_IDLE_TIMEOUT [TIMEOUT=<timeout>]: Allows the user to set the idle timeout (in seconds).
RESTART: This will cause the host software to reload its config and perform an internal reset. This command will not clear error state from the micro-controller (see FIRMWARE_RESTART) nor will it load new software (see the FAQ).
FIRMWARE_RESTART: This is similar to a RESTART command, but it also clears any error state from the micro-controller.
SAVE_CONFIG: This command will overwrite the main printer config file and restart the host software. This command is used in conjunction with other calibration commands to store the results of calibration tests.
STATUS: Report the Klipper host software status.
HELP: Report the list of available extended G-Code commands.
G-Code Macro Commands¶
SET_GCODE_VARIABLE MACRO=<macro_name> VARIABLE=<name> VALUE=<value>: This command allows one to change the value of a gcode_macro variable at run-time. The provided VALUE is parsed as a Python literal.
Custom Pin Commands¶
The following command is available when an output_pin config section is enabled:
SET_PIN PIN=config_name VALUE=<value> CYCLE_TIME=<cycle_time>
Note: Hardware PWM does not currently support the CYCLE_TIME parameter and will use the cycle time defined in the config.
Manually Controlled Fans Commands¶
The following command is available when a fan_generic config section is enabled:
SET_FAN_SPEED FAN=config_name SPEED=<speed>This command sets the speed of a fan.
must be between 0.0 and 1.0.
Neopixel and Dotstar Commands¶
SET_LED LED=<config_name> RED=<value> GREEN=<value> BLUE=<value> WHITE=<value> [INDEX=<index>] [TRANSMIT=0] [SYNC=1]: This sets the LED output. Each color
<value>must be between 0.0 and 1.0. The WHITE option is only valid on RGBW LEDs. If multiple LED chips are daisy-chained then one may specify INDEX to alter the color of just the given chip (1 for the first chip, 2 for the second, etc.). If INDEX is not provided then all LEDs in the daisy-chain will be set to the provided color. If TRANSMIT=0 is specified then the color change will only be made on the next SET_LED command that does not specify TRANSMIT=0; this may be useful in combination with the INDEX parameter to batch multiple updates in a daisy-chain. By default, the SET_LED command will sync it's changes with other ongoing gcode commands. This can lead to undesirable behavior if LEDs are being set while the printer is not printing as it will reset the idle timeout. If careful timing is not needed, the optional SYNC=0 parameter can be specified to apply the changes instantly and not reset the idle timeout.
The following commands are available when a servo config section is enabled:
SET_SERVO SERVO=config_name [ANGLE=<degrees> | WIDTH=<seconds>]: Set the servo position to the given angle (in degrees) or pulse width (in seconds). Use
WIDTH=0to disable the servo output.
Manual stepper Commands¶
The following command is available when a manual_stepper config section is enabled:
MANUAL_STEPPER STEPPER=config_name [ENABLE=[0|1]] [SET_POSITION=<pos>] [SPEED=<speed>] [ACCEL=<accel>] [MOVE=<pos> [STOP_ON_ENDSTOP=[1|2|-1|-2]] [SYNC=0]]: This command will alter the state of the stepper. Use the ENABLE parameter to enable/disable the stepper. Use the SET_POSITION parameter to force the stepper to think it is at the given position. Use the MOVE parameter to request a movement to the given position. If SPEED and/or ACCEL is specified then the given values will be used instead of the defaults specified in the config file. If an ACCEL of zero is specified then no acceleration will be performed. If STOP_ON_ENDSTOP=1 is specified then the move will end early should the endstop report as triggered (use STOP_ON_ENDSTOP=2 to complete the move without error even if the endstop does not trigger, use -1 or -2 to stop when the endstop reports not triggered). Normally future G-Code commands will be scheduled to run after the stepper move completes, however if a manual stepper move uses SYNC=0 then future G-Code movement commands may run in parallel with the stepper movement.
Extruder stepper Commands¶
The following command is available when an extruder_stepper config section is enabled:
SYNC_STEPPER_TO_EXTRUDER STEPPER=<extruder_stepper config_name> [EXTRUDER=<extruder config_name>]: This command will cause the given STEPPER to become synchronized to the given EXTRUDER, overriding the extruder defined in the "extruder_stepper" config section.
PROBE [PROBE_SPEED=<mm/s>] [LIFT_SPEED=<mm/s>] [SAMPLES=<count>] [SAMPLE_RETRACT_DIST=<mm>] [SAMPLES_TOLERANCE=<mm>] [SAMPLES_TOLERANCE_RETRIES=<count>] [SAMPLES_RESULT=median|average]: Move the nozzle downwards until the probe triggers. If any of the optional parameters are provided they override their equivalent setting in the probe config section.
QUERY_PROBE: Report the current status of the probe ("triggered" or "open").
PROBE_ACCURACY [PROBE_SPEED=<mm/s>] [SAMPLES=<count>] [SAMPLE_RETRACT_DIST=<mm>]: Calculate the maximum, minimum, average, median, and standard deviation of multiple probe samples. By default, 10 SAMPLES are taken. Otherwise the optional parameters default to their equivalent setting in the probe config section.
PROBE_CALIBRATE [SPEED=<speed>] [<probe_parameter>=<value>]: Run a helper script useful for calibrating the probe's z_offset. See the PROBE command for details on the optional probe parameters. See the MANUAL_PROBE command for details on the SPEED parameter and the additional commands available while the tool is active. Please note, the PROBE_CALIBRATE command uses the speed variable to move in XY direction as well as Z.
Z_OFFSET_APPLY_PROBE: Take the current Z Gcode offset (aka, babystepping), and subtract if from the probe's z_offset. This acts to take a frequently used babystepping value, and "make it permanent". Requires a
SAVE_CONFIGto take effect.
BLTOUCH_DEBUG COMMAND=<command>: This sends a command to the BLTouch. It may be useful for debugging. Available commands are:
** Note that the commands marked by (1) are solely supported by a BL-Touch V3.0 or V3.1(+)
BLTOUCH_STORE MODE=<output_mode>: This stores an output mode in the EEPROM of a BLTouch V3.1 Available output_modes are:
DELTA_CALIBRATE [METHOD=manual] [<probe_parameter>=<value>]: This command will probe seven points on the bed and recommend updated endstop positions, tower angles, and radius. See the PROBE command for details on the optional probe parameters. If METHOD=manual is specified then the manual probing tool is activated - see the MANUAL_PROBE command above for details on the additional commands available while this tool is active.
DELTA_ANALYZE: This command is used during enhanced delta calibration. See Delta Calibrate for details.
The following commands are available when the bed_tilt config section is enabled:
BED_TILT_CALIBRATE [METHOD=manual] [<probe_parameter>=<value>]: This command will probe the points specified in the config and then recommend updated x and y tilt adjustments. See the PROBE command for details on the optional probe parameters. If METHOD=manual is specified then the manual probing tool is activated - see the MANUAL_PROBE command above for details on the additional commands available while this tool is active.
Mesh Bed Leveling¶
BED_MESH_CALIBRATE [METHOD=manual] [<probe_parameter>=<value>] [<mesh_parameter>=<value>]: This command probes the bed using generated points specified by the parameters in the config. After probing, a mesh is generated and z-movement is adjusted according to the mesh. See the PROBE command for details on the optional probe parameters. If METHOD=manual is specified then the manual probing tool is activated - see the MANUAL_PROBE command above for details on the additional commands available while this tool is active.
BED_MESH_OUTPUT PGP=[<0:1>]: This command outputs the current probed z values and current mesh values to the terminal. If PGP=1 is specified the x,y coordinates generated by bed_mesh, along with their associated indices, will be output to the terminal.
BED_MESH_MAP: Like to BED_MESH_OUTPUT, this command prints the current state of the mesh to the terminal. Instead of printing the values in a human readable format, the state is serialized in json format. This allows octoprint plugins to easily capture the data and generate height maps approximating the bed's surface.
BED_MESH_CLEAR: This command clears the mesh and removes all z adjustment. It is recommended to put this in your end-gcode.
BED_MESH_PROFILE LOAD=<name> SAVE=<name> REMOVE=<name>: This command provides profile management for mesh state. LOAD will restore the mesh state from the profile matching the supplied name. SAVE will save the current mesh state to a profile matching the supplied name. Remove will delete the profile matching the supplied name from persistent memory. Note that after SAVE or REMOVE operations have been run the SAVE_CONFIG gcode must be run to make the changes to peristent memory permanent.
BED_MESH_OFFSET [X=<value>] [Y=<value>]: Applies X and/or Y offsets to the mesh lookup. This is useful for printers with independent extruders, as an offset is necessary to produce correct Z adjustment after a tool change.
Bed Screws Helper¶
BED_SCREWS_ADJUST: This command will invoke the bed screws adjustment tool. It will command the nozzle to different locations (as defined in the config file) and allow one to make adjustments to the bed screws so that the bed is a constant distance from the nozzle.
Bed Screws Tilt Adjust Helper¶
SCREWS_TILT_CALCULATE [DIRECTION=CW|CCW] [<probe_parameter>=<value>]: This command will invoke the bed screws adjustment tool. It will command the nozzle to different locations (as defined in the config file) probing the z height and calculate the number of knob turns to adjust the bed level. If DIRECTION is specified, the knob turns will all be in the same direction, clockwise (CW) or counterclockwise (CCW). See the PROBE command for details on the optional probe parameters. IMPORTANT: You MUST always do a G28 before using this command.
The following commands are available when the z_tilt config section is enabled:
Z_TILT_ADJUST [<probe_parameter>=<value>]: This command will probe the points specified in the config and then make independent adjustments to each Z stepper to compensate for tilt. See the PROBE command for details on the optional probe parameters.
The following command is available when the dual_carriage config section is enabled:
SET_DUAL_CARRIAGE CARRIAGE=[0|1]: This command will set the active carriage. It is typically invoked from the activate_gcode and deactivate_gcode fields in a multiple extruder configuration.
TMC stepper drivers¶
The following commands are available when any of the tmcXXXX config sections are enabled:
DUMP_TMC STEPPER=<name>: This command will read the TMC driver registers and report their values.
INIT_TMC STEPPER=<name>: This command will intitialize the TMC registers. Needed to re-enable the driver if power to the chip is turned off then back on.
SET_TMC_CURRENT STEPPER=<name> CURRENT=<amps> HOLDCURRENT=<amps>: This will adjust the run and hold currents of the TMC driver. (HOLDCURRENT is not applicable to tmc2660 drivers.)
SET_TMC_FIELD STEPPER=<name> FIELD=<field> VALUE=<value>: This will alter the value of the specified register field of the TMC driver. This command is intended for low-level diagnostics and debugging only because changing the fields during run-time can lead to undesired and potentially dangerous behavior of your printer. Permanent changes should be made using the printer configuration file instead. No sanity checks are performed for the given values.
Endstop adjustments by stepper phase¶
ENDSTOP_PHASE_CALIBRATE [STEPPER=<config_name>]: If no STEPPER parameter is provided then this command will reports statistics on endstop stepper phases during past homing operations. When a STEPPER parameter is provided it arranges for the given endstop phase setting to be written to the config file (in conjunction with the SAVE_CONFIG command).
The following commands are available when the force_move config section is enabled:
FORCE_MOVE STEPPER=<config_name> DISTANCE=<value> VELOCITY=<value> [ACCEL=<value>]: This command will forcibly move the given stepper the given distance (in mm) at the given constant velocity (in mm/s). If ACCEL is specified and is greater than zero, then the given acceleration (in mm/s^2) will be used; otherwise no acceleration is performed. No boundary checks are performed; no kinematic updates are made; other parallel steppers on an axis will not be moved. Use caution as an incorrect command could cause damage! Using this command will almost certainly place the low-level kinematics in an incorrect state; issue a G28 afterwards to reset the kinematics. This command is intended for low-level diagnostics and debugging.
SET_KINEMATIC_POSITION [X=<value>] [Y=<value>] [Z=<value>]: Force the low-level kinematic code to believe the toolhead is at the given cartesian position. This is a diagnostic and debugging command; use SET_GCODE_OFFSET and/or G92 for regular axis transformations. If an axis is not specified then it will default to the position that the head was last commanded to. Setting an incorrect or invalid position may lead to internal software errors. This command may invalidate future boundary checks; issue a G28 afterwards to reset the kinematics.
When the sdcard_loop config section is enabled, the following extended commands are available:
SDCARD_LOOP_BEGIN COUNT=<count>: Begin a looped section in the SD print. A count of 0 indicates that the section should be looped indefinately.
SDCARD_LOOP_END: End a looped section in the SD print.
SDCARD_LOOP_DESIST: Complete existing loops without further iterations.
Send message (respond) to host¶
The following commands are availabe when the respond config section is enabled.
M118 <message>: echo the message prepended with the configured default prefix (or
echo:if no prefix is configured).
RESPOND MSG="<message>": echo the message prepended with the configured default prefix (or
echo:if no prefix is configured).
RESPOND TYPE=echo MSG="<message>": echo the message prepended with
RESPOND TYPE=command MSG="<message>": echo the message prepended with
//. Octopint can be configured to respond to these messages (e.g.
RESPOND TYPE=command MSG=action:pause).
RESPOND TYPE=error MSG="<message>": echo the message prepended with
RESPOND PREFIX=<prefix> MSG="<message>": echo the message prepended with
PREFIXparameter will take priority over the
The following commands are available when the pause_resume config section is enabled:
PAUSE: Pauses the current print. The current position is captured for restoration upon resume.
RESUME [VELOCITY=<value>]: Resumes the print from a pause, first restoring the previously captured position. The VELOCITY parameter determines the speed at which the tool should return to the original captured position.
CLEAR_PAUSE: Clears the current paused state without resuming the print. This is useful if one decides to cancel a print after a PAUSE. It is recommended to add this to your start gcode to make sure the paused state is fresh for each print.
CANCEL_PRINT: Cancels the current print.
The following command is available when the filament_switch_sensor or filament_motion_sensor config section is enabled.
QUERY_FILAMENT_SENSOR SENSOR=<sensor_name>: Queries the current status of the filament sensor. The data displayed on the terminal will depend on the sensor type defined in the confguration.
SET_FILAMENT_SENSOR SENSOR=<sensor_name> ENABLE=[0|1]: Sets the filament sensor on/off. If ENABLE is set to 0, the filament sensor will be disabled, if set to 1 it is enabled.
The following commands are available when the firmware_retraction config section is enabled. These commands allow you to utilise the firmware retraction feature available in many slicers, to reduce stringing during non-extrusion moves from one part of the print to another. Appropriately configuring pressure advance reduces the length of retraction required.
SET_RETRACTION [RETRACT_LENGTH=<mm>] [RETRACT_SPEED=<mm/s>] [UNRETRACT_EXTRA_LENGTH=<mm>] [UNRETRACT_SPEED=<mm/s>]: Adjust the parameters used by firmware retraction. RETRACT_LENGTH determines the length of filament to retract and unretract. The speed of retraction is adjusted via RETRACT_SPEED, and is typically set relatively high. The speed of unretraction is adjusted via UNRETRACT_SPEED, and is not particularly critical, although often lower than RETRACT_SPEED. In some cases it is useful to add a small amount of additional length on unretraction, and this is set via UNRETRACT_EXTRA_LENGTH. SET_RETRACTION is commonly set as part of slicer per-filament configuration, as different filaments require different parameter settings.
GET_RETRACTION: Queries the current parameters used by firmware retraction and displays them on the terminal.
G10: Retracts the extruder using the currently configured parameters.
G11: Unretracts the extruder using the currently configured parameters.
SET_SKEW [XY=<ac_length,bd_length,ad_length>] [XZ=<ac,bd,ad>] [YZ=<ac,bd,ad>] [CLEAR=<0|1>]: Configures the [skew_correction] module with measurements (in mm) taken from a calibration print. One may enter measurements for any combination of planes, planes not entered will retain their current value. If
CLEAR=1is entered then all skew correction will be disabled.
GET_CURRENT_SKEW: Reports the current printer skew for each plane in both radians and degrees. The skew is calculated based on parameters provided via the
CALC_MEASURED_SKEW [AC=<ac_length>] [BD=<bd_length>] [AD=<ad_length>]: Calculates and reports the skew (in radians and degrees) based on a measured print. This can be useful for determining the printer's current skew after correction has been applied. It may also be useful before correction is applied to determine if skew correction is necessary. See skew_correction.md for details on skew calibration objects and measurements.
SKEW_PROFILE [LOAD=<name>] [SAVE=<name>] [REMOVE=<name>]: Profile management for skew_correction. LOAD will restore skew state from the profile matching the supplied name. SAVE will save the current skew state to a profile matching the supplied name. Remove will delete the profile matching the supplied name from persistent memory. Note that after SAVE or REMOVE operations have been run the SAVE_CONFIG gcode must be run to make the changes to peristent memory permanent.
UPDATE_DELAYED_GCODE [ID=<name>] [DURATION=<seconds>]: Updates the delay duration for the identified [delayed_gcode] and starts the timer for gcode execution. A value of 0 will cancel a pending delayed gcode from executing.
The following command is enabled if a save_variables config section has been enabled:
SAVE_VARIABLE VARIABLE=<name> VALUE=<value>: Saves the variable to disk so that it can be used across restarts. All stored variables are loaded into the
printer.save_variables.variablesdict at startup and can be used in gcode macros. The provided VALUE is parsed as a Python literal.
SET_INPUT_SHAPER [SHAPER_FREQ_X=<shaper_freq_x>] [SHAPER_FREQ_Y=<shaper_freq_y>] [DAMPING_RATIO_X=<damping_ratio_x>] [DAMPING_RATIO_Y=<damping_ratio_y>] [SHAPER_TYPE=<shaper>] [SHAPER_TYPE_X=<shaper_type_x>] [SHAPER_TYPE_Y=<shaper_type_y>]: Modify input shaper parameters. Note that SHAPER_TYPE parameter resets input shaper for both X and Y axes even if different shaper types have been configured in [input_shaper] section. SHAPER_TYPE cannot be used together with either of SHAPER_TYPE_X and SHAPER_TYPE_Y parameters. See config reference for more details on each of these parameters.
Temperature Fan Commands¶
The following command is available when a temperature_fan config section is enabled:
SET_TEMPERATURE_FAN_TARGET temperature_fan=<temperature_fan_name> [target=<target_temperature>] [min_speed=<min_speed>] [max_speed=<max_speed>]: Sets the target temperature for a temperature_fan. If a target is not supplied, it is set to the specified temperature in the config file. If speeds are not supplied, no change is applied.
Adxl345 Accelerometer Commands¶
The following commands are available when an adxl345 config section is enabled:
ACCELEROMETER_MEASURE [CHIP=<config_name>] [NAME=<value>]: Starts accelerometer measurements at the requested number of samples per second. If CHIP is not specified it defaults to "adxl345". The command works in a start-stop mode: when executed for the first time, it starts the measurements, next execution stops them. The results of measurements are written to a file named
<chip>is the name of the accelerometer chip (
[adxl345 my_chip_name]) and
<name>is the optional NAME parameter. If NAME is not specified it defaults to the current time in "YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS" format. If the accelerometer does not have a name in its config section (simply
<chip>part of the name is not generated.
ACCELEROMETER_QUERY [CHIP=<config_name>] [RATE=<value>]: queries accelerometer for the current value. If CHIP is not specified it defaults to "adxl345". If RATE is not specified, the default value is used. This command is useful to test the connection to the ADXL345 accelerometer: one of the returned values should be a free-fall acceleration (+/- some noise of the chip).
ADXL345_DEBUG_READ [CHIP=<config_name>] REG=<register>: queries ADXL345 register
(e.g. 44 or 0x2C). Can be useful for debugging purposes.
ADXL345_DEBUG_WRITE [CHIP=<config_name>] REG=<reg> VAL=<value>: writes raw
into a register . Both and can be a decimal or a hexadecimal integer. Use with care, and refer to ADXL345 data sheet for the reference.
Resonance Testing Commands¶
MEASURE_AXES_NOISE: Measures and outputs the noise for all axes of all enabled accelerometer chips.
TEST_RESONANCES AXIS=<axis> OUTPUT=<resonances,raw_data> [NAME=<name>] [FREQ_START=<min_freq>] [FREQ_END=<max_freq>] [HZ_PER_SEC=<hz_per_sec>] [INPUT_SHAPING=[<0:1>]]: Runs the resonance test in all configured probe points for the requested
and measures the acceleration using the accelerometer chips configured for the respective axis. can either be X or Y, or specify an arbitrary direction as
AXIS=dx,dy, where dx and dy are floating point numbers defining a direction vector (e.g.
AXIS=1,-1to define a diagonal direction). Note that
AXIS=-dx,-dyis equivalent. If
INPUT_SHAPING=0or not set (default), disables input shaping for the resonance testing, because it is not valid to run the resonance testing with the input shaper enabled.
OUTPUTparameter is a comma-separated list of which outputs will be written. If
raw_datais requested, then the raw accelerometer data is written into a file or a series of files
<point>_part of the name generated only if more than 1 probe point is configured). If
resonancesis specified, the frequency response is calculated (across all probe points) and written into
/tmp/resonances_<axis>_<name>.csvfile. If unset, OUTPUT defaults to
resonances, and NAME defaults to the current time in "YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS" format.
SHAPER_CALIBRATE [AXIS=<axis>] [NAME=<name>] [FREQ_START=<min_freq>] [FREQ_END=<max_freq>] [HZ_PER_SEC=<hz_per_sec>] [MAX_SMOOTHING=<max_smoothing>]: Similarly to
TEST_RESONANCES, runs the resonance test as configured, and tries to find the optimal parameters for the input shaper for the requested axis (or both X and Y axes if
AXISparameter is unset). If
MAX_SMOOTHINGis unset, its value is taken from
[resonance_tester]section, with the default being unset. See the Max smoothing of the measuring resonances guide for more information on the use of this feature. The results of the tuning are printed to the console, and the frequency responses and the different input shapers values are written to a CSV file(s)
/tmp/calibration_data_<axis>_<name>.csv. Unless specified, NAME defaults to the current time in "YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS" format. Note that the suggested input shaper parameters can be persisted in the config by issuing
Palette 2 Commands¶
The following command is available when the palette2 config section is enabled:
PALETTE_CONNECT: This command initializes the connection with the Palette 2.
PALETTE_DISCONNECT: This command disconnects from the Palette 2.
PALETTE_CLEAR: This command instructs the Palette 2 to clear all of the input and output paths of filament.
PALETTE_CUT: This command instructs the Palette 2 to cut the filament currently loaded in the splice core.
PALETTE_SMART_LOAD: This command start the smart load sequence on the Palette 2. Filament is loaded automatically by extruding it the distance calibrated on the device for the printer, and instructs the Palette 2 once the loading has been completed. This command is the same as pressing Smart Load directly on the Palette 2 screen after the filament load is complete.
Palette prints work by embedding special OCodes (Omega Codes) in the GCode file:
O32: These codes are read from the GCode stream and processed by this module and passed to the Palette 2 device.
