You don't need a switch, Mach has a "swapaxis" software function like I said in the beginning,

(;-) TP
   I try to  engrave text  on a  tube too . Can you give more information about swapaxis ? Can Mach3  convert  Y linear movements into angular ?

Not to my knowledge.  I use a small conversion program from the MaxNC software I have from my old Maxnc mill.

I have created a relief and I would like to engrave it on outer edge of ring like seen below. Can you please convert this g-code to rotary g-code? I have tried to replace all Y letter with A but my rotary head always turns in Cw so it deforms the relief. I guess (-) is needed  before the A value to ensure CCW rotation.
