It should work, but I've heard that UGS may not do well with long g-code and very small steps.

@kcmcf,

If you ask very nicely, I am sure Zax is willing to give a discount on a 2nd license... ;D

.....at least that is what I heard.

Using T2Laser?

Do you get the "Grbl Ready" message?

I don't think USG was updates for the new interface when GRBL changed.
Try GrblPanel

since t2 is linked to the pc you could just open 2 instances of t2 and connect 1 pc to 2 machines at once.... maybe.... hmmm... i wonder if that will work.

That would work, I don't restrict multiple instances so you can run more than one laser at a time.
