Setting 254 defines the distance, in inches or millimeters, between the rotary centers of rotation. The default value is 0. The maximum allowed compensation is +/- 0.005 in (+/- 0.1 mm).

When this setting is 0, the control does not use 5-axis rotary center distance compensation.

When this setting has a non-zero value, the control applies 5-axis rotary center distance compensation to the appropriate axes during all rotary motion. This aligns the tool tip with the programmed position when the program invokes G234, Tool Center Point Control (TCPC).
