 Because of how the system records angles, the software shows angles larger than 360 degrees (one full revolution) if a number of turns in the same direction have been taken by the knife. For example, if the knife has turned around its axis from 0 degrees twice in the positive direction, the angle now will be recorded as 720 degrees (2 full revolutions). After the program completes, and the angle is left at this number, the next time the program starts, the knife will rotate back until the angle is equal to zero. This behaviour is not ideal for some users, as it can extend the cutting process time.  Because of how the system records angles, the software shows angles larger than 360 degrees (one full revolution) if a number of turns in the same direction have been taken by the knife.

 The M212 macro exists to remove this positive/​negative degree turn that is larger than 360 degrees at the program start. This is useful if the user wants to stop the knife from spinning back multiple times to its 0 position on the c-axis as the program is starting (however, this will still allow the knife to rotate an angle less than a full revolution in order to align itself properly). The M212 macro exists to remove this positive/​negative degree turn that is larger than 360 degrees at the program start.
