Command G42 - cutter compensation right.

The G42 command (G-code) assigns a tool offset to the right, that is, shifts the cutting tool to theright of the tool path to compensate for the size of the cutting tool used.

To implement the above correction, the radius or diameter of the cutting tool is programmed in 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 G41 command was set (cutter compensation to the left).

The command G42 is modal.

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