ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION II
4. ANIMATED SIMULATION
(1)After executing an M code set in system parameter No. 741, executing
the tool selection T code switches to the C–axis machining screen.
(For cylindrical grooving, an M code set in system parameter No. 742
This screen is displayed in the same way for animated simulation with
(2)The right half of the screen is used to display C–axis cylindrical
grooving, the lower left quarter is used to display C–axis end face
machining and C–axis side face machining other than cylindrical
grooving, and the upper left quarter is used for three–dimensional
(3)Cutting is represented with a filled–in cross section (a circle) of the
tool tip. Rapid traverse drawing is represented with a dotted line,
regardless of whether the tool path is set to on or off.
(4)Even when a portrait–mode lathe is being used, drawing is displayed
in landscape mode.
(5)Up to 32 milling tools can be used in C–axis animated simulation
(including those for Y–axis animated simulation). The maximum
usable tool number is 127.
