Re: Is an A8 with TMC2130 drivers silent?

Re: Is an A8 with TMC2130 drivers silent?

I've decided to upgrade to RAMPS v1.6
Has anyone a good working configuration for me?
In the current (standard A8) I have a MosFet driver for the heated bed and for the Extruder.
Is is good practice to use the MosFet also in the RAMPS configuration?

best regards Piet.

Becaus my Y stepper is making a lot of noise, and I want to silence the machine.
