12. GRAPHICS FUNCTION
It is possible to set whether the tool path is drawn by making the tool
length offset or cutter compensation valid or invalid.
Setting value Tool length offset or cutter compensation
0 Perform drawing by making tool compensation valid
(An actual tool path is drawn.)
1 Perform drawing by making tool compensation invalid
(A programmed path is drawn.)
Always set 0 before drawing when indicating the mark of the current tool
Specify the color of the tool path. In the case of monochrome CRT, it is
not required to set it. The relationship between the setting value and color
is as shown below:
Setting value Color
6 Light blue
⋅ PATH Specify the color of the tool path.

⋅ AUTO CHANGE Set if for changing the color of the tool path
automatically according to the T –code command.
Setting value Function
0 The color of the tool path is not changed.
1 The color of the tool path is changed automatically.
When 1 is set, the setting value of the color designation of PATH is
incremented by 1 every time the T code is commanded. At the same time,
the color of the tool path changes. If the setting value exceeds 6, it returns
Software key Function
[AUTO] Automatic scaling is performed. Obtain the maximum and
minimum coordinates of the part program before performing
drawing, specify them for the maximum and minimum values of
drawing parameters, and set the drawing magnification rate to
0 before starting drawing. Thus, the tool path view is properly
laid out on the screen.
[START] Drawing starts. When the [START] is pressed while the
drawing is not in STOP, the part program starts from the top of
the part program. Press the [START] while the drawing is in
stop to allow drawing to be carried out continuously.
[STOP] Stop drawing. (Single block stop)
[REWIND] Press this key to start drawing from the top of part program.
Searches for the beginning of a part program.
[ERASE] Erase the tool path view which has been drawn.
