The basic process of programming a CNC machine tool is simple. Learning and understanding the code to develop programs is the hardest part. The following briefly describes the steps of CNC machine tool programming.
Step 1: Conceive a 2D or 3D computer-aided drawing. This drawing will be the desired final product.
Step 2: Convert the computer-aided drawing into computer code. The translation process is done so that the CNC system can read and execute the desired function.
Step 3: The machine operator will perform a test run on the new code. This will ensure that there are no errors in the coding.
Step Four: If there are no errors in the machine programming, the process is complete. If there are any errors in the G-code, the operator will work hard to fix them. Once fixed, they will retest the machine.
Once the CNC system is activated, the desired cuts are programmed into the software. It tells the corresponding tools and machinery what to do.
As mentioned above, this process makes the CNC machine like a robot. The machine will operate in three dimensions as prescribed.
