Thumbnails

KlipperScreen can display thumbnails in the file browser and as previews in the print status.

Job Status

Recommended sizes for thumbnails:

  • 300 x 300 - For the larger previews.
  • 32 x 32 - For the smaller thumbnails used in lists.

Note

Other sizes should work, but keep in mind bigger thumbnails are slower to load and can produce bigger gcode files.

Select your slicer:

PrusaSlicer (2.3.0+)

In “Expert” mode PrusaSlicer has an option in the “Printer Settings” tab to activate previews. Under General / Firmware.
