What is this kit for and why should I get it?
This kit replaces the stock touch LCD to give you more control and features over YOUR printer.
The stock LCD does not give you access to tuning settings like acceleration, jerk, steps per mm, and many others. This also allows for live Z adjustment (babystepping) and much more control over the core operations of your printer. PID tuning is available as well to fine-tune your hotend and bed temperature regulation. This goes great with our EZABL kit for automatic bed leveling.
Requires a firmware update that is included with the purchase of this kit. The Chiron usually has a bootloader already (but some later models do not) and updates the firmware over it’s USB port. See the firmware page for full details on how to use and update the firmware.
BOOTLOADER DISCLAIMER: SOME later Chiron models may not have a bootloader. You can check if yours has one by trying to update the firmware before purchasing to see if it will upload to the board. If the firmware uploads to the board, then you have a bootloader installed. If the firmware upload fails with a timeout error then you need to install the bootloader. If your board does take our firmware and you want to use the printer without the LCD kit you will need to re-flash the stock firmware that you can get from the AnyCubic site here: https://www.anycubic.com/pages/firmware-software
Will this work with Klipper?
Yes, these LCDs and the stock board are supported by Klipper firmware. However, due to the complexity of Klipper, our technical support that is included does NOT apply if you are using Klipper firmware. Technical support only applies when you are using our Unified 2 Firmware package that is included.
SD Card Slot – You will use the SD slot on the left side of the LCD after this kit is installed. The stock SD slot is not used and is removed during the installation.
Magnet Nozzle Switch – If your Chiron came with the magnetic nozzle “leveling” switch, this is not supported with our firmware and we do not have plans to add support for it in the future. If you wish to have fully automatic bed leveling we highly recommend pairing this LCD kit with our EZABL kit.
