Use of the tailstock on the 8L

Apologies if this is a dumb question
The 8L has been great with short stock but now I am wanting to turn some pens and need the tailstock support.
The question really is how to tell the conversational programming and/or fusion360 that I have it in there and need to avoid crashing into it when the crossslide retracts in Z.
Do I just use G30

G30 would be the easiest route. Set up G30 at a safe location, where it will not bump your tailstock loose.

Thank you

That’s how I did it also was to use the g30.
