    Cool Can I use polar coords (G16) with circular interpolation (G02)

    Hey I'm making a brake rotor on a Haas VF-1 and I want to make the job easier by using polar coordinates but in the manual G02 is described how it works with XYZ axes. I couldn't find anything about this and I don't have access to the machine to test it out. Is this possible?

    Using G02 for round things is the easy way to do it. No polar coordinates required.

    Are you using CAM software to generate the G code or are you hand writing it?
