G2core has backlash comp, might be worth a look.
The source is here, so you could add those buttons to the ui and recompile GRBLMachine
for your own particular needs.
Time has moved on since the original programmer wrote the plugin and he has left his
details in the about box, so maybe you could contact him and he may add this to the original code
for the newer processors.

A note about backlash compensation in general, it's better to fix the lash problem itself
rather than rely on electronic compensation as backlash comp can only do so much and you will
experience some chatter if you are milling harder materials.
Anyway good luck and have fun.

What I was going to say too. 
Software compensation is very tempting but my experience so far tells that eliminating backlash on mechanical level is the best solution.

yeah all right what you say.

i only have backlash from 0.05mm in Z and X.

on Z i built a adjustible nut.. now its about 0.01 0.02mm.

but on x and y i have nuts from Pom. if i want to renew them it will work for 1 week.

i built a very cheap cnc mill.
with this mill i can mill mildsteel,alloy,brass,cooper.
works for me over years. i dont want to change something on the hardware.

i got never broken bits or something. and a accuary of 0.02mm in xyz and on circles works for me ;)

I downloaded and have been using GRBL Machine and really like it. Thanks so much for developing it.

I don't have much experience but noticed that commands remain in the console command line after being executed and must be erased or overwritten to issue another command. Is that normal?

I can’t click drag and copy text from the console dialogue/report box. I can select/highlight a single line but not a portion and nothing can be copied. Is there a way to copy or display it where it can be copied?

It's Win10.

Best,
Kelly

Kelly,
The block remaining is common, so you can execute it again. How to do that in your controller I don’t know.
