The Review of: Micron+ 180mm High Quality 3D Printer with BTT Manta M8P + CB1 motherboard Touch Screen MOONS’ Motors Review

The Micron+ 180mm is a high-quality 3D printer equipped with impressive features. Let’s break down the components:

  1. BTT Manta M8P + CB1 Motherboard:

    • The Manta M8P is a 32-bit printer motherboard developed by Shenzhen Big Tree Technology Co., Ltd. specifically for Klipper firmware. It simplifies the connection between the motherboard and the Raspberry Pi, saving space.
    • Key Features:
      • Main Control Chip: It uses a 32-bit 64MHz ARM Cortex-M0+ series STM32G0B1VET6 as the main control chip.
      • Power Supply: The power chip, TPS5450-5A, supports DC12/24V input. Its output current can reach up to 5A, with a peak value of 6A, making it ideal for powering the Raspberry Pi.
      • Boot Button: A BOOT button is reserved on the motherboard for bootloader updates via DFU.
      • Thermistor Protection: The thermistor section includes a protection circuit to prevent the main control chip from burning due to heated bed or heater cartridge leakage.
      • Voltage Options: It provides 24V, 12V, and 5V voltages for CNC fans, eliminating the need for an external transformer module.
      • PT1000 Support: The thermistor can select the pull-up resistor value through a jumper, supporting PT1000 without an external module.
      • Firmware Updates: The MCU firmware can be updated via an SD card or through Klipper’s make flash command using DFU.
      • BTB Connection: The motherboard and core board use the BTB connection, allowing other solutions besides CM4.
      • TMC Driver Modes: On-board TMC-driver SPI and UART working modes.
      • Filament Runout Detection, Auto Shutdown, BLTouch, and RGB Lights support.
      • High Efficiency MOSFET for reduced heat generation.
      • Replaceable Fuse for easy replacement.
      • Fan Interfaces: Three-way four-wire fan interface for CNC fans and water cooling devices.
      • SPI Expansion Interface: Allows connecting an external acceleration sensor for acceleration compensation.
  2. MOONS Motors:

    • While the specific details about the MOONS Motors are not provided in the image, MOONS is known for producing high-quality stepper motors and motion control solutions for 3D printers and CNC machines.
  3. Touch Screen:

    • The image mentions a 3.5-inch SPI touch screen, which likely provides an intuitive interface for controlling the printer.
  4. Build Surface:

    • The printer features a double-sided magnetic flexible PEI sheet for the build surface, ensuring good adhesion and easy part removal.
