12. GRAPHICS FUNCTION
For the two–path lathe control, the screen is split vertically, and each half
screen displays the tool path for either tool post.

Parameter GRL (bit 0 of NO. 6500) specifies which tool post is to be
displayed on which side.
GRL = 0 : Tool post 1 is displayed on the left half, and tool post 2 on
the right half.
GRL = 1 ; Tool post 1 is displayed on the right half, and tool post 2 on
the left half.
In case the feed rate is considerably high, drawing may not be executed
correctly, decrease the speed by dry–run, etc. to execute drawing.
After a graphic parameter is changed, the
[REVIEW] soft key must be
pressed to initialize the graphic screen. Otherwise, the change to the
graphic parameter is not reflected correctly.
The coordinate axis names are fixed to X or Z. For the two–path control,
the first and second axes for tool post 1 are named X1 and Z1, respectively,
and the first and second axes for tool post 2 are named X2 and Z2,
If the WORK and DIAMETER graphic parameters are not set correctly,
the drawing cannot be magnified. To reduce a drawing, specify a negative
value for the SCALE graphic parameter. The machine zero point is
indicated with a question mark.
