Moving extra motors while printing

I'm currently interested in the possibility of moving independently steppers that are not currently being used during the print. So far I've done some testing using a DUET 2 with RRF 3.01. I've configured an extra U axis on the driver 4, working perfectly.
But happens that if a try to move that axis while printing, the printer stops for a moment, executes that move, and then continues with the print. I assume that the printer just sends my G0/G1 command to the buffer, executes it, and then continues reading the file, so what I would need it's a second thread receiving input for that motor, or something like that. Would that be possible now or will it be possible in the future? I plan to use it on a Duet 3 if RAM is the problem.
This forum thread gave me a glimpse of the solution also:
Many thanks in advance.
