What does "G40.1"
« on: June 11, 2017, 01:04:49 AM »
I am new to Mach 3. What is G40.1 meant to do? It is generated by some of the New Fangled Wizards as per beginning of code below. Some G code simulators mark it as an error.

(Code by Newfangled Wizard, 11-Jun-17)
(Version 2.86)
(Program Posted for Aluminum )
G0 G49 G40.1 G17
G80 G50 G90 G98 
G21 (mm)
(***** Cut Rectangle *****)
M6 T7
M03 S27491.6

Thanks Keith
