In part one of our experience, we got the chance to try out the Kingroon KLP1 High Speed 3D Printer firsthand.


Recently, we were excited to learn about the release of Kingroon’s new KLP1, a high-speed Core XY printer powered by Klipper OS. Kingroon has been a well-known name in the 3D printing industry, and their previous models have impressed us with their quality and performance at affordable prices.

What caught our attention about the KLP1 was its use of Klipper firmware, which allows for faster printing speeds of up to 500mm/s. While such speeds may result in a more draft-like quality, we were curious to see the results at 350mm/s, a significant jump from the typical speeds we are used to. This integration of Klipper firmware also offers the potential for improved print quality, thanks to features like Input Shaper and Pressure Advance.

The KLP1 is Kingroon’s first venture into the realm of Core XY printers, and it is also their first fully enclosed printer. The enclosure, while not having a dedicated heating system, is designed to retain the heat generated during printing. This is particularly useful for printing structures and filaments that are prone to warping.

In terms of specifications, the KLP1 has a footprint of 400 x 420 x 420 mm and weighs 15.72 kg. It features a 300°C CHC all-metal hotend with a 0.4mm hardened steel nozzle. The printer also includes a 5:1 dual-gear direct drive extruder that supports 1.75mm filaments. The build size is 210 x 210 x 210 mm, and the printer is equipped with a heated print bed and a magnetically secured double-sided textured PEI build plate.

To ensure precision even at high speeds, the KLP1 utilizes a CoreXY motion system with linear rails. It also has sensor-based auto bed leveling, which ensures consistent first layer adhesion across the build area.

In terms of control, the KLP1 is operated using an integrated Klipper mainboard, eliminating the need for a separate Raspberry Pi as seen in other high-speed printers. Additional features like Input Shaping can be accessed with an adxl345 accelerometer. For connectivity, the printer offers options like short-range WiFi and direct Ethernet, allowing users to control their printer from any networked screen. For those who prefer a tactile experience, there is also an optional touchscreen with a stylus available directly on the printer.

Moving on to the packaging, the KLP1 arrived in a sturdy cardboard box with reinforced corners and foam inserts to protect the printer during shipping. The user manual and assembly instructions were conveniently placed at the top layer of the box, making them easily accessible. Inside, there was another foam insert containing assembly components and accessories.

Assembly was straightforward, with comprehensive instructions provided in both Chinese and English. The package also included various assembly hardware and a toolset. For connectivity, there were power and USB cables, as well as a USB memory stick.

Overall, we were impressed with the packaging and assembly of the KLP1. The attention to detail in protecting the printer during shipping and the clear instructions made the process smooth.

In part two of this series, we will dive deeper into the performance and print quality of the KLP1. Stay tuned to learn more about our experience with this exciting new printer from Kingroon.

Title: A Unique 3D Printing Experience: Assembling the Kingroon KLP1

Greetings, fellow tech enthusiasts! Today, we embark on a journey like no other, as we delve into the world of 3D printing with the Kingroon KLP1. In this three-part series, we will take you through the exhilarating process of assembling this cutting-edge printer. So, fasten your seatbelts and let’s get started!

As we eagerly unboxed our Kingroon KLP1, we were met with a myriad of accessories that promised to enhance our 3D printing experience. Alongside the printer itself, we found an essential EMMC adapter and a stylus for the printer’s touchscreen. Additionally, a sample coil of HS-PLA, specifically designed for high-speed 3D printing, was included, further igniting our excitement.

To begin the journey, we decided to tackle the assembly of the side panels. Fortunately, the hinges were pre-installed, so the initial steps were straightforward. All we needed to do was remove the protective paper and securely fasten the hinges to the chassis. Feeling a sense of accomplishment, we thought the rest of the process would be a breeze.

However, as we moved on to attach the door handles, a moment of confusion ensued. It appeared that the screw lengths provided did not match the requirements. Fear not, dear reader, for we pressed on undeterred by this minor setback. Determined to succeed, we took a moment to explore our options and soon located the correct screws, allowing us to overcome this hurdle and continue with the assembly.

With the side panels and door handles securely in place, we turned our attention to the filament spool holder. Assembling and attaching it was as straightforward as one would hope for at this stage. We meticulously checked every connection, ensuring that all components were aligned perfectly.

Before we dared to power up the Kingroon KLP1, we conducted a final comprehensive check, leaving no room for errors. One critical aspect we religiously paid attention to was the voltage settings on the power supply. Confirming that it was in line with the recommendations, we proceeded with cautious optimism.

Alas, dear readers, this brings us to the end of part one of our 3D printing adventure. We hope you found this glimpse into the world of assembling the Kingroon KLP1 as riveting as we did. Fear not, for our journey continues in parts two and three, which promise even more excitement and insights.

Get ready to pick up where we left off in the next installment as we uncover the secrets of connecting the extruder and leveling the print bed. The possibilities are endless, and we invite you to join us on this mesmerizing journey, experiencing the captivating world of 3D printing firsthand.

Until the next chapter, stay curious and keep exploring!
