Re: Opinions and expertise on control boards

600 x 600 mm I wouldn't even think of an carthesian printer. And threaded rods for Y axis? If then maybe ball screw but then you a have to print slow, very slow and Nema17 for that size of bed, I don't think you'll get that running properly

Re: Opinions and expertise on control boards

By using either the RDD Fan Extender or a sperate IRF520 you can control addidional fans from Marlin. I personally run /** * Controller Fan * To cool down the stepper drivers and MOSFETs. * * The fan will turn on automatically whenever any stepper is enabled * and turn off after a set period after a...

Re: Help with Marlin Config it will not upload to printer

@ moorviper sorry to say but you are wrong in that. Marlin Config is made for flashing as well just needs platformio istalled as well. Basically using the same technical workflow as PlatformioIDE vor Visual Studio Code or Atom. By the way VS Code + PlatformioIDE is what I'm using for Marlin developm...

It's a Tevo Tornado, with 24V, so the fan options are limited. Trying to find a calm but powerful 24V 40mm fan is not that easy...
Just a simple buck converter to step down 24V to 12V for stuff like fans LEDS and stuff like that might make it easier

Re: Trouble with MKS GEN 1.4 and TMC2130

Tried Marlin 1.1.8 and 2.0 (not the "bugfix-" versions). Will try the bugfix versions on the weekend.
2.0.x there is only the bugfix version as 2.0 is not officially released yet

Re: Trouble with MKS GEN 1.4 and TMC2130

As you are saying with and without SPI. The mode is not just switchable by plugging or unplugging SPI cables. For SPI mode the SPI solder Bridge has to be open for standalone it has to be closed. Which Version of Firmware are you using. For getting into the TMC world you might consider to start with...
