Supported G Codes

Smoothie is primarily a G-code interpreter. Here is a list of the G-codes that are currently supported :

G-Code Description Example
G0 Move to the given coordinates. To the contrary of G1, if there is a tool it will most of the time be off during this kind of move. This is a "go to" move rather than a "do while going to" move. The F parameter defines speed and is remembered by subsequent commands ( specified in millimetres/minute ) (command is modal) G0 X10 Y-5 F100
G1 Move to the given coordinates, see above for difference with G0. Takes the same F parameter as G0. (command is modal) G1 X20 Y-2.3 F200
G2 Clockwise circular motion : go to point with coordinates XYZ while rotating around point with relative coordinates IJ (command is not modal) G2 X10 J5
G3 Counter-clockwise motion : see above (command is not modal) G3 Y5 X10 I2
G4 Dwell S<seconds> or P<milliseconds> G4 P1000
G10 Do firmware retract G10
G11 Do firmware un-retract G11
G17 Select XYZ plane (command is modal) G17
G18 Select XZY plane (command is modal) G18
G19 Select YZX plane (command is modal) G19
G20 Inch mode : passed coordinates will be considered as Inches, so internally translated to millimeters (command is modal) G20
G21 Millimeter mode ( default ) : passed coordinates will be considered as millimeters (command is modal) G21
G30 Simple Z probe at current XY, reports distance moved down until probe triggers, optional F parameter sets feedrate G30 - G30 F100
G32 Uses Z probe to calibrate delta endstops and arm radius, use R parameter to select only arm radius calibration and E to select only endstop calibration. I to set target precision, J to set probe_radius, K to keep current endstop trim settings G32 - G32 R - G32 E - G32 EK - G32 I0.02
G28 Home The given axis, or if no axis specified home all axis at the same time (edge) G28
G90 Absolute mode ( default ) : passed coordinates will be considered absolute ( relative to 0.0.0 ) (command is modal) G90
G91 Relative mode : passed coordinates will be considered relative to the current point (command is modal) G91
G92 Set current position to specified coordinates G92 X0 Y0 Z0
