"D" as "tool radius compensation number".
If so, I would need to use G41 or G42 ?
What would a lind of code look like profiling with a Ø.25 Endmill?
Thank you for any direction or help.

Thank you Gerry.
According to that Kellyware example you posted, someoneone loaded a DXF into Kcam and got a G-Code complete with Cutter Compensation!
I have never been able to use what K-Cam gives me because the "Z" axis is called for after every few lines, and the G-Code is jumping up and down, running all over the place!
When I load a tool from the tool box, it will compensate to the left, then to the right, and often goes in little circles from one line to another, so I have not been able to use K-Cam in this manner at all.
I can load a part profile (G-Code) written by another program and K-Cam will run the Stepper Motors from it, but when I try to use Cutter Compensation, It goes crazy, So what I load is what I get, any changes I make, I need to do it before giving it to K-Cam.
I love the big display and the CNC Controlls, but use it to run the stepper Motors only.
Surely, I just don't know how to use it, as I said, I love the display.
