Circle movement <CIRCLE>


<CIRCLE> command passes represents movement along an arc. <CIRCLE> parameters are arc center, arc end point and arc radius. The sign of the radius defines the arc's direction. If the radius is positive then the arc has has counter clockwise (G03 circle interpolation). If the radius is negative then the arc has clockwise direction (G02 circle interpolation). The arc's plane (G17/G18/G19) is defined by the current machining plane, set by the <PLANE> command.
