by providing a few markers. Actually it transforms (rotates and translates) the gcode to match the object.
Currently I doing some work on adding a camera alignment system.
With a cheap webcam mounted next to my spindle facing downwards I could get X-Y resolution less than 50um.
bCNC continues to impress me. :)

With conductive clips, can bCNC currently find the center of the circular hole in that edge finding product?

Exactly. The functionality is in the Probe tab as center Probe. Move the gantry inside the hole, You have to supply the diameter to scan and click center. It will scan first in x both ways to find the limits, then move to the middle value and scan on the y both ways to find the center and move there.
