@exxos is there a marlin firmware for that board we can edit to suit your printer? There was for mine in their github.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Annoyingly, This odd jerk program has come back.. It was running smooth earlier I was sure of it. Anyone seen this before ? It can't be bad driver chips again ?!

It does the same running slow but doesn't show in the video..

HMMM...

Code: Select all

MS2 MS1 Microstep Setting
GND GND 8 microsteps   - JERK AS IN VIDEO
GND VCC 32 microsteps  - SEEMS OK ?
VCC GND 64 microsteps  - TINY JERKS
VCC VCC 16 microsteps  - SEEMS OK ?
So *something* doesn't like 8 microsteps. 64 its hard to tell, but doesn't seem as smooth as 32 steps. So going to stick to 32 steps I think.

I contacted Trinamic Technical support about the drivers. Oddly it has gone to a Maxim integrated support channel where they then replied saying "Thank you for contacting Trinamic technical support, now part of Analog Devices." so I have no idea who owns who any more.

I think I figured something out with compiling the software..

It seems if I click the build button on the screen it simply errors..

If I click the "build tick button" in the blue bar at the bottom left it seems to compile then...

There's a plug in especially for compiling marlin firmware. Put that on and it sorts most of the compiling issues out.

Yeah that's the first image I show, it does not work..

We somehow seem to have bricked my board now :lol: :roll:

I mistakenly thought download meant download the firmware from the board not upload it to the board.. I wanted to read the firmware and save it before hand... But nope it uploaded my compiled firmware and bricked the board instead :roll:

Yep. I just do not get on with anyones stuff other than my own. :lol: :roll:

I have used the boot loader in their own repo. There is only one listed for my board anyway. It flashed and verified fine but Windows refuses to see the board any more.


In the install guide is this screenshot..
