Which says you probably want G10 L2 P0 R90
You could, however, set up G55 (for example) to be your rotated coordinate system, and leave it rotated permanently.



P0 still comes back "P out of range". Oh Well.

Looks like the docs are wrong, or don't match your version.
If you are in G54 , use P1 and all should be well (I just checked that, and it works)

Unfortunately the docs are correct but confusing to read... the correction is on the list, thanks for finding the confusion. And my mistake in linking 2.5 docs which support P0 for the current coordinate system. I guess I'm excited about 2.5 fixing to hit the streets and tend to wander over to those docs...

2.4.x docs are here:

You might not see it. I only saw it in the EMC2 sim because the right-arrow started moving the Y axis on-screen
I should have remembered to try 45 degrees, then all arrow keys ought to move both axes…

THe P1 did the trick. It doesn't work in Mach3 Sim but you were right Andy it does work just fine in LinuxCNC. You see John, I knew if you read the man you would be able to do it! Thanks guys, Carl

Well the statement about jogging is correct in the 2.5 docs :)

After we got the G10 going I found this software that changes TXT. file to DXF. and many more. The software is free. It is another cnc controler for USB. I hope this will help other people that need to convert there files. Worked for me with one click! Carl
