    Plenty of people have done it. No different than vanilla LinuxCNC.

    If you watch the video, he references a line with 20% in it. Nothing like available with the latest software .ini file. I tried it anyways and it failed and reverted to a previous version and I had to reinstall the latest.

    It probably wouldn't be a big deal if you could always start moves in the same direction(s), but when cutting a wide groove in the middle of a part and it moves back towards the positive Z, that little bit of backlash leaves a mark. It would be nice to get rid of it.

    Another method is to just eliminate the backlash in the system
