Re: New Printer - Failed Stepper, FW Q & Upgrade Q

This is getting a bit ridiculous - I have finally gotten a couple responses from support, but it seems as though the detailed information I provided (to cut down on the number of back and forths needed) wasn't really digested & support decided to focus in on how M92 is set for the BMG extruders... T...

Re: [FIXED] X Stepper Driver NOK - EC51

This is very interesting - it seems as though the firmware revisions that BVC made did not fully address the issue of stepper drivers being blown up within a few cm of extrusion. This has happened to me since I first tried using E2 and now with BMG extruders it happens every time on E1 and E2. So fa...

Re: X Stepper Driver NOK - EC51

I too have been experiencing issues with my B2X300 frying multiple extruder stepper drives on me. I first stepper driver died mid-print. The extruder would not turn during manual extrusion mode. The TMC2130 driver had a clear burn mark where it was soldered to the chip. After sending a picture to c...

Re: EC11

Apologies for asking any silly questions/repeating what you said, just want to make sure that I understood everything correctly: So, since you say you performed a manual extrusion on E1 then I assume you passed the initial self test the printer performs and when you manually extruded from E1 the pri...

Re: New Printer - Failed Stepper, FW Q & Upgrade Q

Hi, Apologies for the delay in my response, it seemed to be taking a while for my forum post to be verified. I upgraded to BMG extruders and in changing the steps/mm I did notice a number of the upgrades. I would be happy to help port, but some items (specifically the sensorless homing without the e...

Re: Extruder 1 not working

Just as an FYI for anyone else that may experience this I had a similar, possibly the same issue - extruded getting hot but stepper motor not moving (still waiting on my forum post made 2 days ago to be approved... & it’s been a week and haven’t heard back from support yet), but I ran the initial se...

New Printer - Failed Stepper, FW Q & Upgrade Q

Hi All, TL;DR: Stepper driver for E2 blew right after filament loaded. Haven't heard back from Support yet, currently using a TMC2130 from Digi Key - is this OK (in SPI mode, but it has a pot)? Worth upgrading to Marlin 2.0? Seems as though features added by BVC have been incorporated along with oth...
