Re: Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

OK, so I tightened the X carriage rods and that solved the X axis slipping. Now the Y axis is slipping! Everything on the Y carriage is tight as I can get it, but it still does it. Do I need to increase my stepper current or something? EDIT: That didn't help. In fact it got much worse. I increased t...

Re: Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

I actually managed to print something last night, but it didn't turn out too well. https://nextcloud.mrhanman.com/s/4G7Pq4MGYN8EDna/preview The X axis wobbles like crazy. I think something might have broken with all the Z axis craziness. You can see what I mean in this clip. https://www.dropbox.com/...

Re: Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

I figured out why the knob reset the printer. The EXP2 is also reversed on the RepRapDiscount Full Graphic Smart Controller. I thought it was just EXP1 that was backwards. So, that's everything working, except for the X axis won't home. When I try to, it just moves a tiny bit, and I can see on the L...

Re: Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

I had been using marlin-conf to build and flash my MKS, so I decided just to use the arduino IDE. It fails to verify when I include the TMC2130stepper library, even when using a clean Marlin directory with default configs. Any idea why that might be? As for your other suggestions, I don't have spare...

Re: Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

I tried setting the current to 1000mA in configuration_adv.h for the Z driver, but when I start up, it's set to 800mA. I'm not sure if that is the expected behavior. I can set the current with M906 Z1000, then M122 reports 1000, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. It might be a little louder, ...

Re: Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

Turns out the LCD and SPI pins were conflicting. Reassigning them seems to have solved part of the problem. Now though, I can get the X and Y steppers to move, but the Z axis will move down normally, but up it makes a lot of noise. If i "help" it turn, it moves up some. Is there something wrong with...

Marlin installed on MKS Gen v1.4 with TMC2130, steppers won't move

I've got a Maker Select v2.1 that I'm installing an MKS Gen 1.4 and TMC2130s in SPI mode with Marlin 1.1.9-bugfix. These are the drivers I bought. My problem is the steppers refuse to move. Also, this LCD works, but turning the knob causes the board to reset. The X, Y, Z positions on the LCD flash b...
