bugger! g codes are a pain in the butt.you'll need to read what ever manual you got with it and just go through the long drawn out process.you maybe able to write template programs and copy and alter to suit.i've been fortunate to just go straight on to cad type programs and only had to do g code programs at tech years ago.good luck!!
