Looking for a way to get the current absolute position (assuming you have homing setup). I read through https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/G-Code, but the only code I see is M114 which does not appear to work on the shapeoko.
Obviously I could just write down the coordinates of the location I touch off on, just before zeroing. But sometimes I zero a couple of times while accounting for tool width and whatnot. I guess I could just avoid doing that but it would be cool to be able to grab the abs coords if possible.
Are there multiple methods of entering gcode commands? In Carbide Motion, entering ? in the MDI screen, then looking at the log does not show any output. Oddly if I enter $, its shows me a summary of commands I can enter, and ? is one of them.
It may be that Carbide Motion uses ? as a wildcard or is filtering it out — try pre-prending it with a slash or backslash (I believe the MDI window indicates which) to prevent that and enforce CM sending the command as typed.
