Chip select with multiple 36v4 drivers

I am quite new to stepper motors and these drivers, I am trying to independantly control two (eventually more) stepper motors using an Arduino and two 36v4 drivers.

My initial go at this led to the first stepper working as expected but the second getting very hot even while stationary. Probably due to sending too much current to it as the second driver wasnt configured correctly.

It was suggested that I create two stepper driver objects and individually chip select tovassign current limits etc… I havent had any luck with this, could someone point me in the direction of creating two driver objects and setting their parameters correctly please?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, Ben,
