Rough Running external Stepper Nema 34 from Drive 10 CONN_LCD

  • New to forum and not sure what else to do about getting my Nema 34 and CL86T to run smoothly. My setup consist of (2) Nema 23 X-axis, (1) Nema 23 Y-axis, (2) Nema 23 Z-axis, (1) Nema 23 Extruder E0, (1) Nema 34 E10, Duet 2 Wifi + Duex5, Meanwell 24V and 48V 504 Watt Power Supplies (both supplies reading steady 24 and 48 volts during testing). I am experiencing a rough vibration from the motor as it spins up to speed during a print but running a simple motor check gets the motor to spin up nicely without any roughness but with a slight hesitation before taking off. I am providing my Config File below. Thanks ahead for any help.

    External drivers almost always need the M569 T parameter for that driver number to be set so as to meet the manufacturer's specifications for step pulse width and interval, and direction-to-step setup and hold times. Have you done that?

  • Yes I did that and I will add it again in config description below but motor still sounds rough and vibrates:
