C–AXIS FAPT FUNCTION
1. PART FIGURE DEFINITION
“CP” request is displayed only for the 1st element. The PE request asks
which side should be cut for the element moving direction.
For 0, the right side is cut, and for 1, the left side is cut, and for 2, the part
on the line is cut.
(a) Defining figures
1) When defining notching figures, after the first figure has been
defined (definition of a single stroke figure), the following prompt
will be displayed:
In response, select either INPUT or the NEXT PAGE software key.
The following question will appear on the screen:
DEFINE ANOTHER FIGURE? (1: YES 0: NO)
When there is only one figure defined as a single stoke figure, press
the “0” (no) key; the C axis menu will reappear on the screen. For
two or more single stroke figures, press the “1” (yes) key; the
prompt for the starting point of the next figure will be displayed.
Normally, the prompt for the starting point is displayed after the
element symbol has been entered, but in this case the starting point
is displayed beforehand.
However, when the end point for the last element has not been
confirmed, even if
key or the [NEXT PAGE] software key is
selected in response “ES = ”, an error will result; the “THE LAST
FIGURE ELEMENT HAS NOT END POINT” error message will
appear and the next screen will not be displayed.
2) Starting points for figures should be designated as absolute values.
Starting points for the second and subsequent figures cannot be
designated as incremental values that follow the final coordinate of
the previous figure.
3) When defining multiple figures, a period (.) will be displayed
