    The gcode currently sends the HAL layer the settings it needs. I hope to do a remap of gcode soon.

    (polygon radius)
    m68e0q.30625
    (number of sides)
    m68e1q6
    (Cutter diameter - probably get from the tool table in the future)
    m68e2q.375
    (rotate poly 0deg)
    m68e3q0

    (enable polygon component)
    m64p0

    (disable polygon component)
    m65p0
