Programmable output to the RS-232 port sends the current work coordinates of the axes to another computer. Use this G-code in a command block without any other G-codes. No axis motion occurs.
Digitizing a part is possible using this G code and a program that steps over a part in X-Z and probes across in Z with a G31. When the probe hits, the next block could be a G102 to send the X and Z position out to a computer which stores the coordinates as a digitized part. Additional software for the personal computer is required to complete this function.
