Hello Folks! Welcome to Our Blog.

I just picked up the Bigtreetech SKR v1. I'm still having trouble using the Octoprint firmware updater plugin, but it appears that there's active development to get it working on these boards a new build was uploaded 11 hours before this posting, so I expect the kinks to be sorted out soon. As such, I had to manually copy the card back and forth a few times, after forgetting to invert one of my steppers yikes. Physical Installation Stepper Drivers It's always a bit of a pain to check the voltage on the stepper drivers and you can manually assign voltages in Marlin 2.

Setting the voltage took about 5 minutes. I just followed the image below:. Wires You can use all of the same wires if you're coming from a stock controller, except for your fan out. This board uses a JST connector for the fan check your polarity! Exp1 and Exp2 positions are flipped and the wires plug in reverse orientation. Mounting the board The board has the same height as the stock board, but it's just a little bit shorter on the length side. I mounted it using the same holes closes to the power supply so that my power supply wire lengths could stay the same and just drilled in one more hole to add a third point of contact.

Ok, I'm lazy and should've drilled a fourth, but whatever. This thing is quiet and fast. The loudest part on the printer is the power supply fan a massive mm case fan mounted on the inside.

Movement of the printer head is virtually silent. These are far superior to the 2. I've updated the link to the new v3 chips :. The branch of Marlin 2. The bug was only recently identified and fixed in the bugfix branch, so I recommend starting with the Marlin 2. Thanks for the tips! I've got an SKR 1. I don't think Bigtreetech has made any updates to their Marlin code so I'll go with the latest bugfix too.

Would you care to share your configuration file? Today I've been going through the default configuration. I think I've got it where it needs to be now. Right now they're all at 1. Do you know what I should be shooting for there? They should all be around 0.

I have Y set to 1. I just realized that manually changing the vref of the TMC's like I did likely did nothing. I think it also depends if your stepper drivers are correctly configured hardware side for UART. For clarification, you'll want to check if some specific resistors are present on the top of the chip, and I think they need to be bridged Google around, and you'll find some pictures.

You can also try manually setting and programmatically setting voltage. Let me know if it works! I'm a newbie all around so interested in getting a copy of your configuration.Trinamic stepper drivers allow you to have better control of your stepper motors and achieve extremely quiet motion.

You can influence how the driver manages motor current as well as the manner of current delivery. The drivers can act as endstops allowing you to simplify wiring.

Marlin also supports setting the driver current by using software commands, negating the need for adjusting trimpots. The TMC stepper drivers require an external library that allows Marlin to communicate with each driver.

Because the TMC drivers require a way for communication and configuring the drivers outside of standalone mode they also require additional setup. The serial port on master is selected in your pins file. Alternatively you can use the slower software serial by not selecting any of the hardware serial ports.

Typically one port per one driver is needed. Note: The receive RX pins are limited to only interrupt capable pins. Transmit TX pins do not have the same limitation. This means that the drivers should work for moving the axis but you will not be able to configure them nor take advantage of the additional features of the drivers.

To get the drivers working as intended you will need to modify three solder bridges on the driver PCB. This connection needs to be opened for SPI connection to work. The two smaller bridges need to be configured as shown. Hybrid Mode: Marlin can configure the driver to automatically change between stepping modes using a user configured switching velocity.

If the velocity is lower than the threshold the stepper is in quiet stealthChop mode. When the axis velocity increases the driver will automatically switch to spreadCycle. Arduino library for TMC drivers Replaces the following two.

Trinamic drivers Trinamic stepper drivers allow you to have better control of your stepper motors and achieve extremely quiet motion. Installing the library The TMC stepper drivers require an external library that allows Marlin to communicate with each driver. ZIP Library… Point to the downloaded file and click Open Wiring Because the TMC drivers require a way for communication and configuring the drivers outside of standalone mode they also require additional setup.

The current sense resistor used in your product. The multiplier is expressed as a decimal value in the range of 0. TMC drivers can take lower microstepping inputs, like the typical 16 and interpolate that to microsteps which provides smoother movement.

Driver current expressed in milliamps. Higher current values will need active cooling and a heatsink. Low current values may warrant lower acceleration values to prevent skipping steps. Configures the driver to divide a full step into smaller microsteps which provide smoother movement.

Some drivers do not have a dedicated enable EN line and require the same function to be handled through software commands. Fine tune the spreadCycle chopper timings to optimize noise performance. Periodically poll the drivers to determine their status.TMC modes Posted by Shreks donkey.

Shreks donkey. I'm trying to get to the bottom of a layer shift issue and working through some pre-configured firmware marlin bugfix 2. The firmware came from a facebook users group and made no mention of being configured for OTP mode.

I never seem to get any answers when I post there, so I thought I'd ask here. It was set up using this youtube vid from Rui Raptor. From what I can make out running the TMC's in standalone mode needs them to be programmed but mine are unprogrammed and are still as they were when I got them.

I really just want to configure my own firmware but I'd like to understand why they would have set the firmware like that so I can get it right. If I can't get them to function without skipping in legacy mode it's looking like I'll need to switch them over to mode 3 UART mode but I'll need to buy a few parts before I can take that route.

Edited 1 time s. Reply Quote. No takers? So to answer my own question, I configured new Marlin 2. No-one got back to me on the facebook group but it's starting to seem like some of the people posting firmware there are just tweaking other setups and they don't really know much about the TMC's and their setup, it even seems like some of them don't even know much about anything other than the part of the firmware that they tweak themselves.

I learned more from that than I did from piecing info together from random other sources. It happens almost like clockwork when my test print benchy gets to 6. I have a big heatsink on it and an extra fan blowing right on that particular driver but alas. I don't have a digital thermometer so I'm guessing really but the heatsink doesn't seem any hotter than the other two TMC's. I tried switching the module for another new one and it still starts skipping at the same z height.

I also tried dialing my acceleration and jerk settings way down in Cura and that helped a bit but it didn't solve the problem. So I'll try raising the driver module up and running it with two heatsinks as Sean suggests he did when he was getting skipped steps and see how that goes.

The drivers need no programming at all and operate in StealthChop2 mode in standalone mode - unless you have previously and irreversibly programmed them in SpreadCycle mode.

What PSU voltage are your drivers running on? I'm running mine on a 24v supply so from what I've seen they should be more reliable as you noted Pippy. I now have them set as A's and have stealthchop enabled in configuration. I just had to invert their direction setting as Rui Raptor did in his vid linked in my first post in this thread. These drivers are normally run in one of three modes: 1.

SpreadCycle mode. This is the most reliable mode. The main disadvantage with it is that when used with high inductance motors, the standstill noise can be significant.

StealthChop mode. This is only reliable at low speeds and constant loads. If you use it at high speeds, you are likely to get missed steps and spurious short-to-ground indications from the driver.

Also if the head hits a blob or overhang, you will probably have missed steps. StealthChop at low speeds and spreadCycle at higher speeds. At the changeover speed there is a bump. You don't want this bump to happen while printing a perimeter. So IMO the best choice for the changeover speed is a very low speed, so that spreadCycle mode is used while printing but stealthChop mode is used when the motor idle to reduce idle noise. Alternatively, you can choose the changeover speed to be above the perimeter printing speed and perhaps above the infill speed too, so that stealthchop is used when printing but spreadCycle is used for fast travel moves.

If you don't have UART control and your TMCs are running in stealthChop mode, your only option is to limit the top speed of your printer to avoid the problems of stealthChop at high speeds.TMC uses StealthChop2 technology for silent motor operation. Interfacing diagram for TMC is shown below. Pinout and working of TMC is same as A and DRV but it uses StealthChop2 technology and other special features to operate the motor silently and effectively.

TMC has StealthChop2 technology that ensures the noiseless operation, maximum efficiency and best motor torque. By setting appropriate logic levels to these pins we can set the motors to one of the nine step resolutions. TMC uses MicroPlayer technology for obtaining full microstep with lower resolution step inputs starting from fullstep.

Note: this Instructable is meant for the general-use LPCbased SKR boards -- it does not apply to the "Pro", "Mini", or any of the other models aimed at specific printer brands or use cases.

This will put you on that branch, even with 2. When you're sure Marlin and PlatformIO are ready, go ahead and load your Marlin configs into your favorite editor or IDE you'll do the necessary tweaking later in this Instructable. If you're using the SKR v1. You can plug it back in later. In most modern TMC driver modules, there is an empty three-pad jumper present. In one variant made by Eryone the amber board above, top-rightthis three-pad jumper is not in the middle like usual, but instead is positioned way over near one edge where the potentiometer would normally be found, next to the three diagnostic holes, and aligned parallel to the edge of the driver module and there's a two-pad jumper on the other end next to a resistor.

In most any kind of electronics, when you see a 3-pad jumper like this, usually you would short the middle pin to one end or the other, if anything at all. In driver modules like these, which pad should be shorted to to the middle technically depends on what SKR version you'll use the module on. But, the way driver modules are used allows us to make it simple: just solder-bridge all three pads together. This configuration will work on pretty much all controller boards regardless of make or model, so long as the board still has a standard MS config jumper block between the driver module's headers, and can be configured or hacked to use UART mode.

That includes the SKR v1.

Some modern modules have a three-pad jumper pre-configured for UART, along with three pins sticking up from the top. BigTreeTech's v3.

On the bottom, there is the usual three-pad jumper highlighted with a red ellipsebut one pair of pads is bridged with a 0-ohm link which resembles a tiny surface-mount resistor, see the green box. If you have these modules, you need not do any soldering, nor any other modifications. In some modern modules, the 3-pad jumper is pre-configured for UART, but there are no top-side pins. If you'll be using them on an SKR v1. If the jumper has a 0-ohm link but it falls off while soldering, let your vacuum have it :- and just solder-bridge all three pads together.

As with the empty-three-pad-jumper kind mentioned above, you can do this soldering regardless of the SKR version you're using, if you want, but it's only needed on the v1. I have some Eryone driver of this type the brighter-colored amber board hidden behind the "2 More Images" link above.

Incidentally, they seem to be based on some old reference design, as they're basically identical to a number of other brands from the same period. On these modules, there are at least two sets of jumper pads on the underside: one close the STEP pin, and one close to the middle two pins.

There may also be a jumper on the right assuming you're holding the module with the bottom facing you and the diagnostic holes to the right. Some driver modules have the chip and various other parts are on the top of the PCB. On these modules, like the second black PCB above hidden behind the "2 More Images" linkthe parts aren't on the bottom side like usual.

If you hold the module with the chip and such facing you, and the potentiometer and diagnostic holes to your left, there'll be one set of jumper pads on the right, and one set near the middle.

There may also be a jumper on the left. There are at least two brands that put the chip and such on top, or used to in the past Watterott and BigTreeTech prior to v3. As with the others, just use your soldering iron to bridge this middle pair of pads together.

You'll either have to hack your way into usability, or get new drivers that can be used with this Instructable. If your driver module is of the type with two pads on the middle jumper, or it has no jumper at all but comes from the factory claiming to be UART-ready, then you will most likely need to make a solder bridge on the top side of the driver module to connect the PDN pin to the unused pin next to it on the module's header.

Some driver modules may not actually need this bridge, but if you've reached this step, just make the bridge anyway -- its presence won't hurt anything, and this eliminates a possible point of confusion. This unused pin is most likely unmarked, or may be labeled "NC". As you can see on my Eryone modules, the manufacturer put the OpenHardware logo next to it.News, information, links, help and fun related to 3D printing, 3D printers, additive manufacturing, etc.

I intended to replace them with 's. However I blew the chips i bought and could only get 's quickly. Having quite a few issues. Firstly I switched from marlin 1. Enabled the in the firmware, enable stealthchop and uploaded.

First problem is that the the LCD screen attached to the ramps wont power up unless there is also a USB connection as well as a 12v power to the arduino, and power to the ramps. Once powered up the screen is very dim, but it is working. The new chip is incredibly hot, even when idle. Now it moves maybe 50mm before stopping, and will not move again until i reset. I was hoping for a simple drop in solution. Does anyone have any experience installing these chips? EDIT: The dimmed screen and extra power needed were the result of a bad chip, i replaced with another and it now operates how it should.

And then you would also need to wire the board with the stepper drivers. Thanks, gonna revert to my tried and tested marlin 1. From amazon, so yes they are not an offical watterot. Adjust the Vref with the pot or on the firmware? I have seen some people having to bridge pins etc. There doesnt seem to be much installtion info out there for these chips. Can you post the link? But I am not sure if that is also valid for your board. For the bridge you need the support turned on in Marlin 1. I read somewhere that it was not working properly.

I also read that without the bridge it is performing just great. And yes you are right. There and s really not enough information on these chips. Please keep writing regarding your progress.

I tried the second chip, with malrin 1.
