This makes sense to me up to line 8

then the code is all zeros.

no quite sure why it is using i and j on a g1 but I guess they are offset codes so you can use them

in straight lines as well as curves.

I'm not really sure about the G90 where it is - I thought the absolute instruction would not work

with the I and J relative instructions.

will keep playing as I have time - still waiting on a couple of parts for my mill as it got

damaged in transit so haven't got it set up yet.

Will take this over to a more related topic if I keep having problems as it doesn't fit here
