Hello my fellow resin inhalers,

I've recently updated my motor controller. As described earlier, I was using TMCM 1110 up to this point.
There were a couple of problems with this solution:

- driver board is kind of expensive (about 100 Eur), since it's 3 axis and a bit overkill for this project.
- I had to write custom firmware, since it doesn't support G-Code.
- it had to be wired up with a USB-Serial adapter, another possible point of failure.
- i couldn't use nanodlp's Z Calibration features.

Now, I present to you, the best of all worlds: Silent Step Stick!

It's an absolutely noiseless Trinamic driver in a stepstick compatible format. Now i can natively drive the motor in nanodlp.
There are a couple of things to read to configure the correct microstepping but the pins for voltage and enable etc. are compatible with other modules, so this whould work with shahin's schematics too. … &info=4107


just to hear the difference (not my Youtube channel, just a nice comparison):

disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with watterott shop or Trinamic. I just like the product ^^
