What g-code comments does Boxzy accept?

I have seen code which uses (comments) in parenthesis

i have also seen comments at the end of lines with semi-colons

like this

M104 S0 ;extruder heater off

M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it)

G91 ;relative positioning

I welcome advice, as I like to have my first g-code scripts well documented.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Anything behind a semicolon will be ignored, which means you can type any documents you'd like as long as you lead with one.

Thank you for confirmation about the

;semicolon for comments

(do lines inside parenthesis also qualify for comments with the boxyz?)


I believe only comments following a semicolon will be ignored, including parenthesis that follow one. I don't believe it will ignore mid command parentheses. Still waiting on verification.
