Orbiter v2.0 firmware configuration
Steps: 690 steps/mm @ 16 micro-stepping
Max. instantaneous speed change (jerk): 600mm/min(RRF), 10mm/s
(Marlin) (recommended 300/5)
Pressure advance: 0.02~0.03s - to be calibrated
Retraction: 1~1.5mm - to be calibrated
Retraction speed: 120mm/s
Motor current: 1.2A Peak or 0.85A RMS (LDO-36STH20-1004AHG)
Acceleration: 10000 mm/s2 *
* The extruder itself without filament can handle acceleration up to 25000mm/s2. Adding the weight of the filament it drags along it's recommended to have acceleration limit set not above 10000mm/s2.

**Very important note!!! Please make sure the sense resistor is set according to what yuu have on board. TMC2208 and
TMS2209 usually have 0.11 ohm, TMC2660 have 0.051 Ohm and TMC5160 have usually 0.075 ohm.
As an example if you set by mistake the sense resistor to 0.11 instead of 0.051 the real current of the motor will be more than double, and the power injected in the motor more than four time higher, yes you read it correctly FOUR - AKA 4 times higher. 0.85A shall give a power loss of about 3W doubling the current will lead to 12W - this will melt all the plastic gearset before you notice something is wrong.
How you can identify the sense resistor? It's pretty easy, look for two identical resistors which are bigger than all the others on board or around the stepper driver. See the examples in the next pictures.
• First send configuration commands and save them to EEPROM.
Second, edit the marlin configuration files edit Configuration.h and Configuration_adv.h recompile and reflash your microcontroller firmware.
Send the following commands via USB:
M906 T0 E850
M900 T0 K0.22 L0.04 M207 S1.5 F7200 Z0.2 M500

Motor current configuration using reference voltage
Adjust Vref by the trimmer resistor to a voltage corresponding to 1.2A Peak. Current. You will need to use a digital multimeter.
For most drivers the shunt is 0.1Ω, adjust the voltage at the trimmer middle pin to 1.2V.
Be aware some drivers have different shunt configurations and you have to set different voltages please check your driver documentation.
Setting to high a current will overheat the stepper and potentially damage the extruder!
- Settings for **TMC2209** - Vref =1.2V
Warning: Please check if your driver has a trimmer or not. If yes, most probably firmware configurations of the motor current have no effect. Some TMC drivers even if they have onboard trimmer but the motor current can be set via UART as well like the TMC2208.
