Will a G43 cancel a G47?

I believe it will. It is just a matter of "how"...

As you may know-

-A G44 will activate and apply the 5 axis length compensation IMMEDIATELY. A G43 will deactivate and "un-apply" the length compensation IMMEDIATELY.
-A G47 only activates the 5 axis length compensation with the actual adjustment "blended" with the next positioning move. Likewise, a G46 only deactivates the length compensation with the actual adjustment back interpolated with the next positioning move.

We do not usually mix the two forms in our post processors, but I do not see why you couldn't. (Although we may want to wait on a final word from someone from Thermwood.)

This scenerio has been tested and it does work in Version 8 software.
