— CORRECTION: I made a mistake and this can’t apply to 1.5 —
My neighbours are not happy with the noise of my Genesis XL 1.5. Going through the forum, I saw that the best option is to replace the A4988 stepper drivers with TMC2208.
I have ordered four Bigtreetech TMC2208 V3.0 UART and done my homework sifting through the various postings (thanks @Klimbim, @Ascend, @Gabriel, @eide and all the others who have contributed) but before I break anything, would a good soul with more experience please validate my understanding of what needs to be done?
- Replace the A4988 the TMC2208 – Watch out for the correct orientation
- Set the jumpers to MS1 = HIGH / MS2 = LOW / MS3 = LOW (i.e. 1/2 microsteps)
- In the Web App, change
- Steps per mm x 2 = 10
- Microsteps per steps = 2
- Invert motors X = Yes / Y = Yes / Z = Yes
- Invert 2n motor = Yes
- Encoder scaling = (10,000 x 200 x 2) / 360 = 11,111
- Anything else?
Finally, I saw some references to changing the voltage but I am not sure how to do that and the implications?
