Hi walesham!

This is example for QTNII(Matrix Nexus)

G52.5
G0G90
M9M5
Z-932 (Pos at Z where Steady rest is)
M86 (M86 opens forks, M87 closes forks)
M74 (M74 unclamps steday rest, M75 clamps steday rest)
G4X3. (Waits sot hat forks are open and Steady is connected to the Carrige)
G0Z-800.M0 (Now you can move the Z axis, togheter with steday rest to wanted position)
Z-700G4X4.
(viceversa, when you leave the steady rest to support the part)
M75
M87
Z-800.
M30


Check the clamp/unclamp and open/close forks Mcodes in your list to check if they are same.


Hope it helps,
Miki
