4. ANIMATED SIMULATION
ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION II
(1)After executing an M code set in system parameter No. 741, executing
the tool selection T code causes switching to the Y–axis machining
screen. This screen is displayed in the same way for animated
simulation with gradation.
(Y–axis side face drawing is updated when the phase angle is
(2)The right half of the screen is used to display Y–axis side face
machining, the lower left quarter is used to display Y–axis end face
machining, and the upper left quarter is used to display
three–dimensional line drawing.
(3)For Y–axis side face machining, the screen is further divided into four
pieces. Each time the phase angle is updated, machining display is
(The latest machining result is always displayed at the bottom of the
(4)Cutting is represented with a filled–in cross section 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.
(5)Up to 32 milling tools can be used in Y–axis animated simulation
(including those for C–axis animated simulation). The maximum
usable tool number is 127.
