    3 axis compensation with macro programing?

    Hey guys.
    I need to know is it possible to use cutter comp in 3-axis Spiral milling in a circular pocket?

    It should work by using cutter comp. But I normally measure the endmill, plug that value into the CAM program, and compile the G code with the correct endmill size. Optionally make a test cut, and adjust the comp in the CAM program.

    For some reason I wanna use macro programing for simple parts instead of CAM programs, for example I have a circular blank part that I wanna create a 20mm diameter hole inside of it with a 12 diameter endmill tool.
    Can you give me a macro program example for helical milling with compensation tool and 2mm pitch ?
    The height of hole is 15mm.

    ...depends on the CNC control...and the programmer:
