(4)Question about cutting start position
The cutting start position is automatically calculated from the index
position, XS and ZS values are displayed. Since the X value at the
index position is undefined, the X value at the cutting start position
also remains undefined. Specify the cutting start position X in the first
process without fail. The cutting start position X in the second and
higher processes are kept undefined. Thus, the tool is replaced by
pulling the Z axis only to the index position without returning the tool
to the index position.
(5)Inversion of X coordinate signs
The system asks whether the X coordinate signs are inverted or not in
the same way as in setting the cutting start position. Input 1 for the tool
which cuts on the –X side. In the example shown in the above figure,
T02 corresponds to drawing format 1 or 2, while T01 corresponds to
drawing format 3 or 4.
