Backlash compensation

Please how do I go about my backlash compensation. I have a G2 controller running on 4 axis, X(slaved) Y and Z. Is there a file that I can used to guide me through the process, X axis uses a rack and pinion and Y and Z are ball screw.

Francis,

There is no file as such for setting backlash, but Peter as made an excellent video on how to go about it.

Regards,

Arie.

Hi @francisfatade

While there is no macro for measuring Backlash I have written some Gcode files that behave exactly the same way as the macros in the video.
I have uploaded the files here and there is a written description on how to use it.

Hope this helps
Regards Peter
