Define Axis Zero (G10)

Along the lines of the previous message regarding Dwell (G4), is G10 used in actual gcode project files? It resets the zero point of the specified axis (like what happens you set the Z-Axis to the zero point and press “Define Zero”). I’ve never seen it used in any code that I’ve looked at and suspect it’s not generally used (or wouldn’t likely be used) with the Maslow. If so, I won’t look for it and handle it in the gcode index function I’m working on.

it would not be used in the g-code produced by any CAM software, but it would be
used by the controller software (Ground Control equivalent) to let the user set
where Zero is.
