Seen a couple posts, but does the FiveD support a U axis? (rotary) ie:

G1 X20 Y20 U50 F500

I can see this being useful, though printing on mandrels could be a bit problematic.

You can adjust how far the physical components move relative to how many step movements the motor makes if your wondering. So you can calibrate it to take rotation as the unit of measurement for the Z axis but to be honest I think just having the physical millimeter movement of the Z axis as the unit of measurement is much easier.
