Re: Update Marlin Firmware

That what git is for and why it is used by Software projects. To automatically merge changes of a new release into your version without loosing your current settings. Only if parts of the old and new parts would conflict you get a merge conflict that you have to solve manually As a contributor / dev...

Re: Marlin with: MKS GEN 1.4 + TMC2130

http://up.picr.de/31479719zw.png 2 wire Fan if you want to control every fan on it's own use one IRF520 per device. They are les than 1$ per pcs. If you are using the pins D4,5,6,11 on the servo header these are all PWM capable so for the the controller fan for example you can set the value from 0 ...

Re: Marlin with: MKS GEN 1.4 + TMC2130

Marlin has a contrióller board feature . If have mine hooked up with a IRF520 and one signal wire from the D5 pin. So the Board fan turns on a soon as one of the stepper gets active and turns off 1min after the last stepper is inactive. Basically the same way Thomas shows in his video on wiring up L...

Re: RAMPS, TMC2130s, and LCD

So correct MISO,MOSI,SCK are only used by SD, I running of a RAMPS with a LCD12864 and don't use the SD at all so I don't use the EXP1,EXP2 adapter on my RAMPS at all. Pin 49 is SD_DETECT_PIN , Pin 53 SDSS so none of these are needed if SD Card is not used, So with those 8 pins plus GND(white) and 5...

Re: Update Marlin Firmware

I really recommend to use VS Code or Atom with Platformio IDE as you don't have to take care of any dependencies, have git integration and updation / merging a new release is really simple. Marlin delivers a platformio.ini with al needed task for compiling, uploading for every environment(board) alr...

Re: RAMPS, TMC2130s, and LCD

@mesnik Concerning your LCD issue. Having alook on the schematics and the board layout it's quite obvious why a repRaps Full Graphics display will not work on the MKS as the coonnector on the MKS has the notch on the wrong side. So as 5V and GND are fixed no way to reassign the pins. Either cut the ...

Re: TMC2208 - MKS 1.4 - Anet A8 ?

If you want to run them in standalone mode in staalthchop2 with interpolated 1/256 the setup is easy as you just have to ensure Jumper MS1 and MS2 are set in the board and plug them in and adjust Vref with the poti as any other driver Anything else beyond requires to either use an USBSerial programm...

Same goes for the Fysetc TMC2100. Even worse are all MKS drivers with TMC Chip.
The only non Watterott I'm aware that is setup yo work out of the box / as intended are the Fysetc TMC2208
