Using External Drivers for X/Y/Z Axis



  • Hello,
    Merry Christmas !
    Was tinkering around wanting to connect an MKS TB6600 to my Duet, and I found this page on the wiki.
    It is my understanding that I need to remap the drivers pins, but I'm kinda stuck on the chart near the end of the page, not really shure what the X/Y/Z axis pin is on the duet... same for the E"number" axis pin, on the expansion slot there are 4 pins for each "E" !
    So not shure what to do... any genius ideas 😄 ?

    Thank you so much and happy holydays !



  • try this setting
    ; Drives
    ; M569 P0 S0 ; Drive 0 goes forwards=0 BACKWARD = 1 0==X
    ;M569 P1 S1 ; Drive 1 goes forwards=0 BACKWARD = 1 1==Y
    M569 P2 S1 ; Drive 2 goes forwards=0 BACKWARD = 1 2==Z
    M569 P3 S0 ; Drive 3 goes forwards=0 BACKWARD = 1 3==E
    M569 P4 S1
    M569 P5 R1 T2.5:2.5:5:0
    M569 P6 R1 T2.5:2.5:5:0
    M569 P7 R1 T2.5:2.5:5:0
    M569 P8 R1 T2.5:2.5:5:0

    M584 X7 Y8

    I use this setting to drive dm542t

    Yes, use the E2, E3 and E4 pins (aka driver 5, driver 6 and driver 7 pins).
