G-Code Circular interpolation

Aug 12, 2018 5:09 pm

I realise that as we are slicing STL models, that the g-code output will always be straight line controlled motion.
I have seen some CNC software which will detect circles and substitute G2 and G3 when circles are detected from the point-to point input data, and the coding to do this should not be difficult.

so the question is, assuming that I had the necessary g-code, does my i3 Mk3 support G2/G3 circular interpolation?

I have checked and can not find support for G2/G3. It would be a nice feature to build a curve tolerance and filter everything to g2/g3. I do this in mastercam when cutting 3d objects and it reduces code by 60% or better. We can only hope.
