    Welcome to the forum Moose. As far as I am aware G-code has no maths or calculation functions. All calculations are done externally and the G-code only process the results.

    What are you trying to achieve?

    I did wonder if he meant the ARC functions... but he did say the 'trig' function and R isnt a trig function, its the radius modifier to the G2 arc move function.

    Hi moose, yes I understood that, but since G-Code doesnt understand angles your request doesnt make sense. Hence my question - in the wider context - what are you trying to do? If we understand the problem better we can help more...
