Klipper vs Marlin 2.0 on 32bit board
July 06, 2019 05:33PM
Hello everybody,

I apologize if this is the wrong section, I'm new here and there were a lot of options.

I recently picked up a SKR 1.3 32 bit control board to replace my printer's board (which used to be a Tevo Tornado). I am upgrading because, well I like shiny new things, plus there is some issue with the USB connection on my current MKS Base board, and I would like to use OctoPi to control via wifi as well as TMC2208s. Since I am using an rPi anyway for OctoPi, I want to know if Klipper will still give a performance advantage over Marlin even with the 32bit processor (due to better math optimization etc) . If I went with Klipper, it would feel like a waste to use the 32 Bit board for this, but if I go with Marlin, I would worry that my performance isn't as good as it could be. If you have experience with both, I would greatly appreciate an opinion on the matter, as I intend to work on the printer tonight. Thanks.

Performance with either firmware should not be a limiting factor on 32bit boards. Personally I prefer klipper. One big reason for that is the absolute ease with which you can make configuration changes.
