### Milling with the Lab-Volt 5600

02/27/08

• Introduction to g-code

• Create a design for a 2”x2” piece of milling stock

• Graph on paper

• Create the g-code for the paper design

• CNC - a computer that reads G-code instructions and drives a milling machine in order to milling a part

• End mill - a cutting to similar to a drill bit in appearance with cutting edges on its circumference

• PRZ - programmed reference zero

• A type of Industrial Standard Operation (ISO) codes.

• We will use their conversational equivalents.

• (x,y,z) where

• x axis parallels the front of the cnc mill

• Y axis parallels the side of the cnc mill

• Z axis parallels the height of the cnc mill

• (x,y,z) = (0,0,0) or the Programmed Reference Zero is set before cutting to be a position at the top of the mill stock at its left front corner.

• This means that to cut the material, the end mill’s z coordinate will need to be negative.

• FEED 5

• SPEED 1500

• MOVE

• X.125 Y.125 Z0.1 RAPID

• Z-.125

• X.75

• Y.375

• X.365

• Y.625

• Z.1 RAPID

• END

• Using the graph paper provided draw a maze to be milled with an 1/8” end mill.

• Write the g-code to mill it.

• Run the simulations in four views.
