"QUIET" OPTION

Here is a Google Photos album with videos and a couple pictures that show off the TMC stepper drivers.

Basically it will make the printer much quieter when printing. There fans will be the loudest part of the machine and then maybe a little bearing noise but that will vary from printer to printer.

The stepper driver for the extruder / feeder mechanism will remain as the stock "4995" driver being it is not the correct package size to be replaced with a TMC2208.

I will not claim that swapping the stock A4988 stepper drivers with TMC2208 stepper drivers will make prints come out better or print faster. I will say that this upgrade will make the printer much quieter without loss of quality or speed. No firmware modifications are needed. No hardware changes have to be made by the user to accommodate the upgraded driver. As far as the user is concerned all is the same in regards to hooking up the board and printing with the same slicer settings as used before.

NOTE: The TMC2208 drivers are running in "legacy mode". The TMC2208 will interpolate received step signals to 256 microsteps. UART is not available in legacy mode.

    Makes the Mini Delta usable in any environment. Fan noise is really all I hear (other than the extruder)

    "Quiet" Mainboard

    Posted by Philip on Feb 28th 2019

    This is a must have quality of life improvement for the Monoprice Mini Delta! Install was straightforward, just be careful with unplugging the connectors from the original mainboard. The printer works like a dream, and is so much quieter now it is almost unbelievable.

    Worthy upgrade for older machines with broken Mainboard.

    Posted by Dennis on Aug 16th 2018

    My older mainboard failed and I ordered this replacement. It came with the latest firmware release and upgraded 16x micro-step motor drivers. They significantly reduced the stepper noise in the printer. It was easy to replace the board. Mostly just a few screws and swapping out the plugs. Make sure you mark which motor and home sensor connectors go to which plugs on the mainboard, and also which heater connectors and thermistors. Those plus are the same, so it would be easy to get them into the wrong places.
