    I went back to the old firmware. I'm starting to think the driver may be getting weak. I upped the voltage to .8 and it's runs the first 3 layers fine then it doesn't want to go any further up. Yet when I send it commands through mattercontrol it raises just fine, or through the lcd.

    Heat is the death of stepper drivers and they put out a lot of heat in that tiny little chip. Sad part is that the heat is dissipated through the circuit board not through the top of the chip.

    I've had a 60 mm fan on the board since day 1. But all good things must end as they say.
    But I prefer the Frankenstein approach, give it new life! Muhahahahaha!

    I'm think I'm going to upgrade my board to a skr mini e3 w/TSMC2209 drivers.
