The compensation move is(for me at least), when the 4 leadscrews align the bed. It do the 4 probe point, then it goes down, then it does the compensations, then it goes to the point I configured.

RE: Auto Bed compensation torque problems.
Not when XY moves.
The bed compensation goes as probe the 4 points, the bed moves away a bit, then the bed compensation happens, and then the printer moves the desired point. When the probing moves happens, there is no hearable step loss, but when the compensation move happens, there is hearable loss.
Auto Bed compensation torque problems.
First of all, my printer is custom built, and for some reasons I had to change my buildplate from 10mm aluminium to a 15mm steel sheet. Now its about 35 kgs, give or take some, as the plate size is 760x700, and the printer itself 800x800x2200 outer sizes with 550x500x~800 buildsize. I have DuetWifi and Duex5(Z's only), 1x, 1y 2E and 4 independent Z motors(Nema 17, 0.5 Nm, 1,8°) and TR 12x3 threaded rods directly driven, with linear rails.
And now the problem itself:
Motors can move good, but when I give G32, the probing finishes, then the compensation move seems to happen too fast or with less torque, so its move some but lost some steeps(about 0,1-0,3 mm off each). And its obviously not really good.
The solutions I tried: I slowed down my acceleration to 2 mm/s^2 (from 40), and crank my amp from 1800 to 2800(its the max since the motors overheating if i crank it up more). (With this I also lowered the max Z speed form 200 to 50)
The change microstepping from 16 I1 to 8 or 4, its getting loud, the gap lowered a bit, but not much(from the 0,4-0,5 range to 0,1-0,3)
I also lowered the probing fed from 20 to 10, but this doesn't made any change.
Firware version: 1.19.2, with 1.19.3 WebInterface version.
I know stronger motors or if I gear them, probably solves the issue, but I would be happy if I can solve it with a software change, and not with a hardware one, since I should printing at the weekend.
Auto bed leveling weirdness
I use a 4 Z rod machines, for a while its working fine. Today I start the machine, and ran into the error in the picture. Its goes always in a 0,4mm zone but for understandably reasons thats not acceptable.
RE: 4 motor IDEX configuration problems
Problem solved after a firmware update. The Gcode page doesn't tell it, but its seems not working with 1.8.1. Updated to 1.9.2/1.9 and workinf beautifully.
I have some wifi problems now, but I can live with that(duet doesnt really want to connect automatically to my router, and I have to start the wifi module manually)
4 motor IDEX configuration problems
I ran into several problems during the setup, but now its working. The machine is about 550x590x800 build size. 0,51 nm 2A NEMA17, dual head, 4 independent Z motors.
The problem is, G32 not start autotune my Z rods. It does the probing and the web interface shows the correct map, but then its not start the autotune. Config file, bed and heightmap included.
And photo attached from the board. And I didnt understand why motor mapping works like this. And the Zprobe was moved to the Zprobe input from the E endstop, because it dont want to work neither of the E endstop connectors.
