I notice that in "configuration_adv.h" for the BIGTREETECH-SKR-mini-E3, which uses TMC2209 drivers, the similar section has: #if HAS_TRINAMIC_CONFIG #define HOLD_MULTIPLIER 0.5 // Scales down the holding current from run current #define INTERPOLATE true // Interpolate X/Y/Z_MICROSTEPS to 256 #if AXIS_IS_TMC(X) #define ...

While the following doesn't conclusively prove changing the motor would work, I think the answer is yes! And I achieved the desired result via a different method, so I consider the problem solved. Instead of changing the motor, I designed a 1:4 step-up planetary gearbox to put on top of the extruder motor, yielding a 10:1 net reduction instead of the ...

In general I would use https://github.com/rcarlyle/StepperSim which takes into account more parameters. You can play with voltage and current to see which combination gives you the best results for your motor. Or you can change to a TMC driver with higher voltage (35-50 V) to keep torque at much higher speeds and push the current motor more. Since the torque ...

Stepper motors "want" to keep their position as they are told to by the firmware, therefore they do whatever it's needed (accelerate and brake) to follow the orders they received. The question is: is the firmware telling them to move/accelerate/brake faster/harder than they can? if yes, they won't keep up (because of inertia and much more) so you'...

A guy at work had this - he got many cheap rolls of PLA. They had been stored hot and were subtly deformed, each flake slightly sticking to the adjacent ones. His fix was first to unspool "enough" filament for the job, but that was not reliable for longer prints. The proper fix was to wind the entire roll onto a spare roll and then fit that to the ...

I was considering buying a Fl3xdrive but had this exact fear, that the speed (rotation) required for retractions was too much. I stumbled upon this post while looking for a project for a step-up gearbox. I found a Nema 17 Gearbox "Pulleybox" Mod for Extruder on Thingiverse, should be enough to do what you did with your design, I guess.
