4. MACHINING DEFINITION
(MENU NO. 4)
SLANTED SURFACE MACHINING
Selecting Y–axis machining enables machining figures defined on
slanted surfaces as well as Y–axis machining figures to be selected as
If machining figures defined on slanted surfaces are selected, they are
automatically re–defined for slanted surface machining.
However, the following restrictions apply to selection of slanted surface
D Only one slanted surface machining figure can be selected for one
D Slanted surface machining and side facing figures cannot be
intermixed in one machining process.
Machining figures defined on slanted surfaces are drawn as stated below.
D The axes of the slanted surface coordinate system in the ZX plane are
drawn with solid lines.
D The position of figures on a slanted surface in the ZX plane is drawn
with dotted lines (for arbitrary figures, in the interpolation plane).
D Figures entered in the slanted surface coordinate system are drawn.
D The phase angle of the C–axis and the position of the Y’–axis of the
slanted surface coordinate system are drawn.
