  • Page 21.1 SPECIFYING A TILTED WORKING PLANE BASED ON THE TOOL AXIS DIRECTION Overview By specifying G68.3, a coordinate system (feature coordinate system) where the tool axis direction is the +Z-axis direction can be automatically specified. When a feature coordinate system is used, a program for cutting

  • Page 4Explanation - Feature coordinate system By specifying G68.3, a feature coordinate system with the tool axis direction being the +Z-axis direction can be created. The tool axis direction means the tool axis direction based on the rotation axis position reached by automatic operation or manual operati

  • Page 6- Angular displacement R Angular displacement R is positive when a rotation is made clockwise viewed in the Z-axis direction of the feature coordinate system. The range of angular displacement R is: 0.0° ≤ R ≤ 360.0°. - Machine of table rotation type On a machine of table rotation type, the tool dir
