SKR 1.3 + TMC5160
October 16, 2021 03:14PM

I changed my 2560+ramp1.4+a4899 with a SKR1.3+TMC5160

I follow instruction from btt to make setup on SKR1.3+TMC5160
I use visual studio for diferent version of marlin 2.0
everytime I compile with success
I succeed in transfert to board.

here is issue I have : I can not make work motors.
I made different test.
try with different marlin. version originale V2.0.6x V2.0.9.1 V2.0.9.2 even a cartesian version. No change
try with power supply 12V and 24V no change
try to turn cable connector between board and motor no change
everything else is working : endstop fan heater.
with pronterface or lcd menu, if I make a G28 after few sec it crash printer.

I think, Issue is not in marlin firmware as I tried different one, at the end I was chnaging strict minimum but it failed every time with motor.
(by the way for information, config.h and adv delta version remove some menu in lcd panel. probleme I do not have with cartesian version.)
No I have no more idea what to do...
I can provide conf.h and conf adv, but not sure it will help

if someone can assist me with this issue.

This is often the following setting being enabled, when the stepper driver has enable pins. so steppers are never enabled.

* Software enable
* Use for drivers that do not use a dedicated enable pin, but rather handle the same
* function through a communication line such as SPI or UART.

thank you... at least I progress.

Ok I activated it, but not tested for the moment not on site where the printer is.

when compiling, I get this error message that is not blocking but is in warning :

'void print_es_state(bool, const char*)' defined but not used [-Wunused-function]

is it because I have physical endstop and SPI mode do not use it ?
if I understand good SPI mode use motor resustance as endstop instead of physical end stop ?

is it possible to use real endstop , by I do not know using TMC5160_standalone function ?
