Made the Programmatic G-Code Generator page more general

So now it's:

https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Programming

Re: shared projects?

Re: Touch Probe

You shouldn't lose position, but each time you do a tool change, there's a chance that you'll nudge the machine off by a step --- best practice is to re-home at least.

You can use Carbide Create with the machine as it is. Upgrades are as listed at: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Upgrade_Overview --- you could check in on the Inventables forums too if you wish to look into an upgrade to an X-Carve. You should be able to upgrade to 1.1 see: https://github.com/g...
