Re: Marlin with: MKS GEN 1.4 + TMC2130

sorry for interrupting this thread.

I am trying to get a version of Marlin running on my MKS Gen 1.4 board that does mesh bed leveling (I think my bed is a bit bowed in the middle and I have issues with the bed leveling where it treads the build plate as a perfect plate).
I've been having issues getting Marlin 1.1.8 running on the board, I was wondering if you could make available the Marlin that you have got to run properly as a point for me to start modifying.

thank you so much for your help,

Try Knight

Hi @mesnik i'm having some issues uploading my firmware on my new mks build and I noticed you have the exact same setup as me! If you don't mind could you attach a zip of your marlin? Just to make sure, you have an AM8, 4 tmc 2130's(with your Z in series), rep rap discount lcd, and mks gen 1.4? Thank you :D

thx for a great post

got the same board and thinking about getting the tmc2130
did you get all the features to work with it, the missing step sensor and no endstop needed anymore because of the power sensing.

i dont have the same display but the original MKS 3.2"

but the most importen part is the TMC's functions.

Im also having issues setting up my tmc2130's with a MKS GEN 1.4. Ive followed Toms guide and a guide on Chris's Basement for setting them up on marlin 1.1.8 but I can not get them to work. Ive also tried 1.1.9 with the same results. I assume that I do not need to remap any pins with my board since in the guides ive followed they did not say to and all of the pins i was told to connect to were unused prior to installing the tmc2130's?

I realise it may be a stretch but can anyone point me to a download (or text that I can copy and paste) of Marlin that has been set up and is working with tmc2130's and sensorless homing? I can tweak the rest of the code to work with my printer.
