Command G41 (G-code) - cutter compensation left.

The G41 command assigns a tool offset to the left, that is, shifts the cutting tool to the left of the tool path to compensate for the size of the cutting tool used.

To implement the correct correction, the radius or diameter of the cutting tool must be programmed in the word D.

If the offset value specified by the radius or diameter of the tool in the D word is negative, the tool correction will be performed as if the G42 command was set (cutter compensation right). The right or left side of the path of movement of the cutting tool are determined when looking at the cutting tool, when it is removed from the operator.

The command G41 is modal.

G41 is included in the modal group 7 (Units) (G40,G41,G42).
