Has anyone tried using a BTT Manta board on a MPCNC?
I migrated my Ender 3 away from Marlin & Octopi about a year ago, and recently built a Voron 2.4 also on Klipper & Mainsail. I’m really trying to avoid going back to Marlin and Octopi so hoping there’s enough experience here with Klipper to control a CNC.
Given the challenges with Pi availability, I was either going to use an old laptop or look at using the Manta with a built in compute module to run the OS right on it.
As this will be my first CNC project (may built a LowRider if the MPCNC goes well), is there any CNC tasks that klipper hasn’t expanded to?
I’m very happy with BTT (SKR mini, Octopus, relays, filament sensor etc), but does anyone have any experience of, or reason not to go for the Manta?
I have seen some klipper builds. So it is worth a search here to find like minds. I’m not sure I’ve seen mainsail on any of them though. It might be worth a check to find out if it errors out when there is no extruder.
I use klipper with octoprint on my printer. It works great.
I got one of the Manta M8P + CB1 for the Repeat V2 not installed or built yet.
I also replaced a Raspberry Pi 4 that was running klipper for my CR10S- Pro with the Raspberry Pi adapter + CB1 and I will do the same for my original Repeat .
You can’t go wrong using it… especially for the price…around $50
