### Example program for making an Arc

```N10 G00 X50 Y40 Z-1
N20 G02 X20 Y10 I-30 J0```
• In the above example in the first line moves to position X50 Y40 Z-1
• An arc is made starting at position X50 Y40 and ending at coordinate X20 Y10 with centre at position X20 Y40 moving in a clockwise direction. The Z height does not change.
• The Arc centre is calculated as follows
• Starting position X50 + I-30 = Center X coordinate X20
• Starting position Y40 + J0 = Center Y coordinate Y40 ### Example program for making an Spiral

```N10 G00 X50 Y40 Z0
N20 G02 X20 Y10 Z-0.5 I-30 J0```
• The above example in the first line moves to position X50 Y40
• An arc is made starting at position X50 Y40 and ending at coordinate X20 Y10 with centre at position X20 Y40 moving in a clockwise direction. The arc is the same as in the diagram above but the Z axis will descend from its current height to -0.5 units at a uniform rate over the arc to forming a spiral path.
• The Arc centre is calculated as follows
• Starting position X50 + I-30 = Center X coordinate X20
• Starting position Y40 + J0 = Center Y coordinate Y40
##### Note: Units are defined as either inches or mm depending on your machines setup or G20 or G21 command in use.
