G53 - Move in Absolute Coordinates

Details:
For linear motion to a point expressed in absolute coordinates, program: G1 G53 X~ Y~ Z~ A~ (or similarly with G0 instead of G1), where all the axis words are optional, except that at least one must be used. The G0 or G1 is optional if it is in the current motion mode. G53 is not modal and must be programmed on each line on which it is intended to be active. This will produce coordinated linear motion to the programmed point. If G1 is active, the speed of motion is the current feed rate (or slower if the machine will not go that fast). If G0 is active, the speed of motion is the current traverse rate (or slower if the machine will not go that fast).

It is an error if:

  • G53 is used without G0 or G1 being active;
  • G53 is used while cutter radius compensation is on.
