I have owned this awesome Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus aka KLP 3D printer since 2017.
Story of this page begins at the time I have started looking for upgrades on the internet and became flustrated. It was very difficult to find any page containing tutorials or explanations about particular upgrade and searching for an answer in a FB groups is a madness.

My goal is to present you some of the best upgrades and guides how to install them.

You can tune retraction distance, speed,

  1. I cannot thank you enough for the time and energy you have put into this information. I am new to the 3D printing world and was given an Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus. Without the information you have provided I would be completely lost. I would like to ask how you currently have your Kossel set up.
    1. Are you running an SKR 1.3 with Klipper or do you still use Marlin?
    2. Do use the factory v5 hot end or would you recommend going to the v6 as shown in your guides?

    1. Hi, thank you for your feedback and your donationt.

      I am still running original Trigorilla board + 4x TMC drivers and a Klipper FW.

      Original V5 works for 80-100mm/s depending on acceleration and jerk settings.
      We are working on a volcano and V6 upgrade (complete effector print with ABS/ASA) and a better cooling right now.
