G02 and G03 codes

Does the longmill support G02-G03 codes?
Carbide Create evidently does not.
Is there other software that does support those codes? Or does the MK2 not allow them

Hi Bill,

GRBL (the firmware the Longmill runs) supports G2/G3 in a fashion. It converts all G2/G3 commands into small, linear movements that approximates the original arc - so it’s not true arc movement but it’s generally indistinguishable. It won’t throw an error if your program includes those movements.


Thanks for the information. That’s what I’m hoping for.

As the original issue has been addressed, I’m closing this topic. If anyone else has a similar concern, feel free to start a new topic, which will ensure that it is addressed promptly.
