Product Info

These smoother boards are an addon module that sits between the 3d printer board and the stepper driver. Just unplug the stepper driver from the board, plug in the module, and plug the stepper driver to the other side of the module. Make sure to match up the DIR and EN pins on the board to the stepper driver.

Installation Example

These provide flyback diodes for the motors that help reduce the appearance of “salmon skin” on prints. This is a common issue with DRV8825 drivers and the boards that ship with the Tevo Tornado printers. These can be used on any stepper driver type that is used in 3D printers.

In addition to reducing the appearance of “salmon skin” these also provide protection to your printer board when moving the motors when the printer is off. Overall these make motion smoother and even reduce noise by a tiny amount.

  • Significantly reduces “Salmon Skin” on 3D Printers that have this issue
  • Provides protection for the stepper drivers when moving the motors when the machine is off
  • Sold individually

Works with any machine that has removable “StepStick” style drivers. See pictures for examples.

Specific machines these work with:

  • Geeetech A10
  • Tevo Tornado with MKS Gen L board
  • Folgertech FT-5

Notes About VREF

By design smoothers will cause a slight voltage drop as the motor signal goes through the flyback diode setup. If you are getting any layer shifting after fitting the smoothers try increasing the VREF by 0.1V on the axis that was losing steps. This is rare but we felt it was worth mentioning.

      As long as your printer has the socket stepper boards on its control board this will work with it. Just check to make sure with the additional 12mm height added from the smoother you won’t hit a panel in your control box with the heatsink on your driver.

    I recently bought some of these and put them on all axises of my geeetech a10. Now my z axis isn’t moving upwards(it drops after it tries to). What can be causing this problem?

      You may have the smoother installed backwards. Check that the EN and DIR pins are lined up with the stepper driver and the board connection itself. We also have our communities here to get help with these types of products: https://www.th3dstudio.com/knowledgebase/community-support-links/
