I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with the pin connections on RADDS.

The 1.21RC1 build of RRF for RADDS has been available for some time in the usual EdgeRelease folder on github.

Oh no problem, just wondering if anyone here knows cause I can't seem to find stuff about it. Great I'll download it then!

What do i have to do to make this work with TMC2130 stepper drivers? i know how to hook it up, but seems like it might not be as easy as a few configuration changes/pin mapping... recompiling firmware isn't an issue if there needs to be changes.

RepRapFirmware has support code for TMC2660, TMC2208 and TMC2224 drivers, but currently not TMC2130. The TMC2660 has the same stallguard 2 feature and high microstepping as the 2130 but handles nearly twice as much current - which is why we chose it for the Duet.

If you want to support the TMC2130, you could adapt the TMC2660 code.

There is now a forum at duet3d.com to discuss RepRapFirmware on non-Duet electronics. See [www.duet3d.com]. Feel free to use it, or to continue the discussion here. Or both.

I have released a 1.21.1RC1 maintenance release of the RADDS build of RepRapFirmware. See [forum.duet3d.com] for details.

Hi, thank you for the development of Rerapfirmware. I currently am using Radds with Repetier with no issues. I don't require auto levelling so wondered if I will notice an improvement in print quality if I switch from Repetier.
Or is the RepRap firmware just easier to use? Does it support the LCD display?

It's not possible to generalise. Several users have reported an improvement in print quality when switching to RepRapFirmware from other firmwares - and one user recently reported a reduction in print quality. RRF may be a little less tolerant of bad GCode than other firmwares, because it controls extruder jerk, whereas many other firmwares don't.

Currently the only LCD supported by RepRapFirmware on RADDS is the PanelDue. There is ongoing work to support a 12864-style graphical LCD on the new Duet Maestro and it should be possible to back-port it to RADDS. However, I won't be doing that back-porting because I don't plan to do any more releases for the SAM3X-based boards after the forthcoming 1.21.1 maintenance release. This is because most SAM3X-based boards don't have enough RAM to support the real time operating system (RTOS) that RepRapFirmware version 2.0 uses. The RADDS build could probably support RTOS because it has no networking support (because RADDS has neither WiFi nor Ethernet) so it has more free RAM.

I was hoping that either the manufacturer of RADDS or someone else would take responsibility for the RADDS port of RRF, but that hasn't happened. If anyone does take that on and gets the RTOS build of RRF for RADDS working (which should be easy to do - I can advise if necessary), then I'll accept pull requests so that it can be kept in step with the Duet builds of RRF.

btw I released a RADDS build of RRF 1.21.1RC2a earlier today.
