Universal G-Code Sender

I use Carbide Motion, mainly, because of it’s automatic end mill length probing once you change tools. Is there a way to create a macro that would send my Nomad into tool length probing?. Sorry if this is a simple question.

Since its used by the Stepoko folks who want to be pure opensource, there are some resources on it there:

and we have this post:

Hopefully that will cover it, if not, Will Winder has some documentation up at:

If macros aren’t covered, mention it to him?

Thank you @WillAdams. Will test today. I’m interested in the UGCS because of a Triquetra probing plate I own. I’d like to see if I can effectively make it a part of my workflow.
