Smoothie is primarily a G-code interpreter. Here is a list of the G-codes that are currently supported :

G codes

G-Code Description Example
G0 Move to the given coordinates. To the contrary of G1, if there is a tool it will most of the time be off during this kind of move. This is a "go to" move rather than a "do while going to" move. The F parameter defines speed and is remembered by subsequent commands ( specified in millimetres/minute ) (command is modal) G0 X10 Y-5 F100
G1 Move to the given coordinates, see above for difference with G0. Takes the same F parameter as G0. (command is modal) G1 X20 Y-2.3 F200
G2 Clockwise circular motion : go to point with coordinates XYZ while rotating around point with relative coordinates IJ (command is not modal) G2 X10 J5
G3 Counter-clockwise motion : see above (command is not modal) G3 Y5 X10 I2
G4 Dwell S<seconds> or P<milliseconds>, In grbl mode P is float seconds to comply with gcode standards G4 P1000
G10 Do firmware extruder retract G10
G11 Do firmware extruder un-retract G11
G10 L2 G10 L20 set workspace coordinates and G10 L2 P1 X0
G17 Select XYZ plane (command is modal) G17
G18 Select XZY plane (command is modal) G18
G19 Select YZX plane (command is modal) G19
G20 Inch mode : passed coordinates will be considered as Inches, so internally translated to millimeters (command is modal) G20
G21 Millimeter mode ( default ) : passed coordinates will be considered as millimeters (command is modal) G21
G28 Home The given axis, or if no axis specified home all axis at the same time (edge) NOTE in CNC/grbl mode this is move to park position, use $H to home G28
G28.1 Set Predefined Position - This position will be returned to by G28.2 G28.1
G28.2 Move to Predefined Position - This perform a rapid move to the Predefined position set by G28.1 (in grbl mode this will do a home) G28.2
G28.3 Manual Homing - This allows you to set a home position manually without moving to limit switches G28.3
G28.4 Manual Homing based on actuator position- This allows you to set a home position manually based on actuator position (used for rotary delta) G28.4
G28.5 clears the homed flag for the specified axis, or all if not specifed G28.5 G28.5 Z0
G28.6 shows the homing status of each axis G28.6
G30 Simple Z probe at current XY, reports distance moved down until probe triggers. optional F parameter defines the speed of probing, zprobe.slow_feedrate is used when not supplied G30 - G30 F100
G31 Depends on levelling strategy selected, see ZProbe G31
G32 Uses Z probe to calibrate delta endstops and arm radius, use R parameter to select only arm radius calibration and E to select only endstop calibration. I to set target precision, J to set probe_radius, K to keep current endstop trim settings. In Zgrid module, it starts the grid probing G32 - G32 R - G32 E - G32 EK - G32 I0.02
G38.2 G38.3 Standard probe commands implemented as documented here G38.2 Z-10
G53-G59.3 use workspace coordinates and G54
G90 Absolute mode ( default ) : passed coordinates will be considered absolute ( relative to 0.0.0 ) (command is modal) G90
G91 Relative mode : passed coordinates will be considered relative to the current point (command is modal) G91
G92 Set current position to specified coordinates G92 X0 Y0 Z0
G92.1 clear the G92 offsets G92.1

Tool change

Tn will change the tool to n for all future commands, it may appear anywhere on the line or on a line by itself
T1 M200
M200 T1

NOTE This is not compatible with the G-code spec, but unfortunately most slicers create incorrect Gcode for tool change.
