The g-code needs to be created with G41/G42 in mind, as you need to use lead-in and lead-out moves. If programmed correctly, then yes, you can use different size tools.

But, you can't just add a G42 to an existing program without other modifications, as it most likely won't work.

Do you know how I can create a program taking in consideration the G41-42? Do i Have to change the post processing files?

If that is the case it would be a problem since I have no idea how to do it.

thanks
