    Many controls are either not optioned with coordinate rotation or not capable of it. If one’s control was capable and optioned, then a G68 would allow a single line G2 or G3 lead in.

    Hmmm. Don't see that definition in my copy of Webster's. I'm reluctant to speculate on what dictionary you've been reading, but here goes. Possibly one related to your lifestyle choice?

    Ummm. I mean that you can't just use a single G2 or G3 to program the lead-in move if one needs to drill at a compound angle. One could do a compound angle with two G2 or G3 lead-in lines.

    I found Renishaw's exchange program to be very generous. I once sent in an MP10 probe that had been crushed and bent. I fully expected them to tell me that it would not qualify for the "core...

    That's not a repair history or expense I'd be proud of nor want to pay. This is one of my gripes. Sure, parts are relatively cheap. It's the frequency that one needs to do repairs or replace parts...

    In my case it’s because I worked for a Fadal distributor in the late 80s to early 90s. Best decision I made was to leave there and go independent so I could say no to Fadal service calls.

    Fanuc controls can display messages if the machine builder writes it in the PMC. Have a look at Makino PRO5 or PRO6 or Amada AMPC.

    Why are floor mats still an option for a new car? Same answer. Some don’t want or need. And the dealer or manufacturer can rake in a bit more profit selling options.
