Cutter compensation?

Good afternoon all,

I tried to run G41 today and it alarmed out (don’t have the alarm to hand right now).
I’m just wondering if cutter comp is possible on
these machines? If so any basic info would be fun!

I’m thinking for finely adjusting features for tolerance and fits etc

Thanks in advance.

Hi @CTOWN

Yes, the machines should support cutter compensation. Here is more information on how to implement it.
