I love that particular XKCD.

“The nice thing about standards is that you have so many to choose from; furthermore, if you do not like any of them, you can just wait for next year’s model.”

Just quit blindly following EMC on the arbitrary ignoring of absolute mode when using g10 L2 and you software will be better for it. I’m just saying.

@John_Herrington We generally follow the NIST format and the LinuxCNC documentation. Do you have more details on exactly what you mean ?

Sure. And I don’t know where EMC/LinuxCNC picked up this ignoring G91 when using G10 L2, it’s not from EIA or the NIST RS274-*. It’s not from ISO 6983-1:2009. It’s just arbitrary, and less functional than respecting the distance mode. I posted the following in the LinuxCNC’s forum:

@John_Herrington Thanks.

@John_Herrington Actually, I’ve just been informed the problem you mention is fixed in Smoothie.
