G41 will select cutter compensation left; that is, the tool is moved to the left of the programmed path to compensate for the size of the tool. A D address must be programmed to select the correct tool radius or diameter offset. If the value in the selected offset is negative, cutter compensation will operate as though G42 (Cutter Comp Right.) was specified.

The right or left side of the programmed path is determined by looking at the tool as it moves away. If the tool needs to be on the left of the programmed path as it moves away, use G41. If it needs to be on the right of the programmed path as it moves away, use G42. For more information, refer to the Cutter Compensation section.

G41 or G42 will select tool nose compensation. G41 moves the tool to the left of the programmed path to compensate for the size of a tool and vice versa for G42. A tool offset must be selected with a Tnnxx code. where xx corresponds to the offsets that are to be used with the tool. For more information, see Tool Nose Compensation in the Operation section of this manual.

G41 TNC Right and G42 TNC Left: [1] Tip = 2, [2] Tip = 3.
