Elevate Your 3D Printing Experience with BIGTREETECH Pad 7

The BIGTREETECH Pad 7 is a 7″ IPS touchscreen tablet specifically designed for 3D printing enthusiasts. The device has Klipper and KlipperScreen pre-installed, and when not in use, you can replace the core board with a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 for your preferred application.

The product page show us that the tablet is powered by a BIGTREETECH CB1 module and ships with Klipper and KlipperScreen pre-installed. The footprint of the BIGTREETECH CB1 module is identical to the CM4 which is why it can be replaced with the CM4.

The CB1 module is powered by an Allwinner H616 Quad-core Cortex-Arm A53 CPU with a boost clock of 1.5GHz and comes with a Mali-G31 MP2 GPU and 1GB DDR3L SDRAM. The board also features dual mini HDMI, a USB-C port for power, an RJ45 ethernet port, a CAN port, and many other features.

A good look at the display specs shows that it is a 7″ screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, 178° viewing angle, and supports auto backlight adjustment. You can also find a 3.5mm audio jack, an integrated speaker, and a heatsink for the CB1 or the CM4 module.

BIGTREETECH mentions that this 7″ pad is compatible with almost all FDM 3D printers. The screen is compatible with BIGTREETECH SKR and many other Octopus series motherboards.

In the package, you’ll find a 2GB MicroSD card, an ADXL345 accelerometer module, a power adapter, and more items. Additionally, you will get a BIGTREETECH Pad 7 user manual, that tells us about the assembly process and gives us instructions to enable features like vibration feedback and automatic backlight adjustment based on ambient light.
