Re: TMC2130 overheating only few seconds after starting the print

You may post your configuration, hardware and the settings you have changed in marlin. Did you saw the video of Thomas sanladerer (https://youtu.be/sPvTB3irCxQ) about the TMC2130 on a mk3 clone? I have had bigs problems on my Z axis (2 motors 1.7Amp in parallel). I changed DEFAULT_MAX_FEEDRATE to 3 ...

Re: TMC2130 and motor overheating

I had some issues with my setup! Dolly, arduino, ramps, TMC 2130 from Watterot with nema 17hs4401 1.7Amps.resistance 1.5, inductance 2.8. Lot of lost steps! The motors never get warm but sometimes, the driver get very HOT until I glued a heatsink with a two component glue (silver arctic glue). Then ...

Re: tmc 2130 for newby

Hooray! I found! It 's neither the wiring nor the current, it is the "DEFAULT_MAX_FEEDRATE" in marlin. Set at 3mm/sec the Z axis now moves smoothly, motors wired in parallel because in series, one motor or the other take all the current and turn, depend on their mood!

Re: DRV8825 vs TMC2100 vs TMC2130 vs TMC2208

I have made a "dolly" with 2130s (Thomas wiring), X, Y, E0 worked perfectly; Z not at all. Has I had no clues, I reconfigured the board with A4988 to find that my 2 motors (17HS4401) needed to run on 1/8 and in series (Thanks to oakdesign). I'll try that config with the 2130 has soon has I recieve a...

Re: Use tmc2130 without spi in stealthchop

Is SPI useless or unconfigured on the ramps board?

Re: tmc 2130 for newby

Oups! Sorry guys! I didn't check enough! Two solders on the spi header where broken!
Now the Z axis can make noise again. 1Amp, High pitch no move in parallel has in series...
Better with less current, moves in parallel (only one motor in sreies)

Re: tmc 2130 for newby

I glued heatsinks to the X, Y and Z drivers with arctic silver 2 component glue (not electicaly conductive). Rewired all together carefully aaand! Nothing moves anymore! sometime I have X enstop or driver error on the lcd. I upgraded to the new TMC 2130 library from today, recompile and it is the sa...

Re: tmc 2130 for newby

I'am in stealthchop mode only. I have tried sensorless z homing once and have destroyer the bed☺. I put a mechanical endstop for z min pluged on the z max plug, near the diag 1 wire from the z driver but trigering it don't stop the z axis to lower. I will wire the motors on series tomorrow !
