TMC2130 drivers buzz but don't turn
June 28, 2018 12:31PM
Hello!

I am using Ramps 1.4 with the Discount Full Graphics Display and SD Card Reader and I have downloaded the latest bugfix version of Marlin (as of 6-27-18). I have done a 20v conversion on the stepper/hotend side of the RAMPS.

I set up my four TMC2130 stepper drivers according to wiring diagrams I found online. When I start up the board and use the "Move Axis" feature to trigger a stepper, the stepper motor just vibrates and doesn't apply any actual torque. It does the same thing in StealthChop mode and SpreadCycle Mode. Below is the TMC section of my Configuration_adv.h.

/**
 * Enable this for SilentStepStick Trinamic TMC2130 SPI-configurable stepper drivers.
 *
 * You'll also need the TMC2130Stepper Arduino library
 * (https://github.com/teemuatlut/TMC2130Stepper).
 *
 * To use TMC2130 stepper drivers in SPI mode connect your SPI pins to
 * the hardware SPI interface on your board and define the required CS pins
 * in your `pins_MYBOARD.h` file. (e.g., RAMPS 1.4 uses AUX3 pins `X_CS_PIN 53`, `Y_CS_PIN 49`, etc.).
 * You may also use software SPI if you wish to use general purpose IO pins.
