    How do you continuously loop a G code sequence such as
    G1 F228 Y76
    Y-76
    using the OpenBuilds Contorl software? I can repeat the line many times but is there an easier way?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately the standard use case involves running a program start-to-finish. Also, Grbl does not support "canned cycles" either - so one of two options:

    1. Copy-paste as many as you need or
    2. Use a simple serial program written in NodeJS or Python to send the command, wait with a small delay, send the next command, on a loop. As your use case does not seem to be CNC specific, it would probably be better to approach it this way than inside CNC software
