The Rambo board doesn't have removable driver chips, so you would have to either change the control board out, or bypass the onboard drivers to use them. The new form factor Archim uses similar DRV8825 drivers, but isn't marlin compatible. https://ultimachine.com/products/archim-1-0a

These little things seem to be very interesting. Especially when it comes to printing overnight!!
So, for the sake of conversation, lets say that we'd like to bypass the onboard drivers and use the TMC-2130.
How would we do that? I'm sure we'd have to use the "Motor Ext" socket, but it can't be just that.
Any ideas?
