Absolute and Incremental Programming

It is possible to program based on absolute coordinates from programming zero (G90 Absolute) or to program from the coordinate where the cutter is located (G91 Incremental). Below is an example of absolute programming and incremental programming.

G90 - Absolute Programming

G91 – Incremental Programming
