When CAM generate G code, I suppose they do one layer at a time, in that one layer, all movement is in X and Y plane, so it can breakdown to straight line and curve.

Re: Mach 3 question

Pretty much. Your system needs to: read G-code from a file interpret the G-code plan the motions generate step and direction signals count step pulses to determine the required current in each motor winding put that much current through the motor In all cases, your motor drivers (e.g. Allegro A4988...
