Did anybody already do the math for the reference voltage setting of the TMC2100 stepper drivers?
The instructions tell to turn the poti of the drivers to a specific location but since tiny turns already change the settings a lot I would like to eliminate a faulty setup on my side because the Y-axis sometimes isn't able to move the print head...
@esmith13 @Gavin Rea If you haven't already, try adjust your TMC2100's trimpot, it could be sending too much current through the driver causing it to shut down to protect itself. If you have access to a multi-meter you can check the vref as outlined above. Other wise you may need a replacement driver.
@Makertech, I am having a similar issue. My Y-Axis moves smoothly with one finger but when I try to perform the Y-Axis movement it moves once then won't move again unless I power off and on. If I give the Y-Axis home command it will move all the way across the gantry and home perfectly fine - but then never move again unless i power off and then back on. Any ideas?
For the X axis (platform) you can set it between 0.95-1.05v and for the Y-axis (hotend) you can get away with less, between 0.6-0.7v. If your Y-axis is struggling, check you don't have any resistance on the axis when powered off and moving it by hand.
