External Stepper Driver from SPI (TMC2130)

Hello guys,

I want to implement the 6th axis to the SmoothieBoard 5X V1. As I understand from advanced motor chip module documentation, we can add external stepper driver chips like DRV8711 or TMC2660 by using SPI pins without losing other axis functionality. But I want to implement TMC2130.

Is it also definable at config file directly?
And if I add the driver successfully, is it possible to use G-Codes for 6th axis for example “G0 C10”? If not, how we can achieve this?

Thanks for the help :slight_smile:
