N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

This presentation will show you how to create a completely new VQC Template. You should review the VQC Templates presentation prior to this one to get a basic understanding of customizing templates.

This presentation will use an aid called the “Template Builder”. It is simply a spreadsheet with some grids and code samples to make it a little easier to see how templates are created.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

Openthe

“Template Builder” andgo tothe“Basic”worksheet.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

You will notice that there are some basic shapes and sample code that you can alter when creating a custom template.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

Let’s say you want to create a template for finishing the ID of a part like that shown.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

First delete the 3linesindicated.They will not be needed.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

Click on one ofthe ArcsandthenselectFormat.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

Now Select

“Auto Shape”


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

From the menu, Select

“Size”

Change

the“Height and Width” to 200%. You may also have to adjust the height and width to get a arc with a radius of 6 blocks


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Repeat this procedure withthe second arc.

YDist


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Move the two arcs so they are centered above and equidistant from the datum.

YDist


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Move the vertical line so that it connects the left side of the two arcs.

YDist

You will need to shorten it a littleto make it fit.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Copy and paste the vertical line. (You can use “Ctl C” for copy and “Ctl V” for paste).

YDist

You may want to zoom in to see the objects better.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Move the copiedline so that it connects the right side of the two arcs.

YDist


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Copy and paste this arrow line

Move it to the position shown. The size will need to be shortened.

YDist

Don’t worry if your drawing doesn’t look perfect.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Copy and paste the small horizontal line

YDist

Move it to the position shown.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Type the word “Radius” in the cell indicated.

YDist


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Move a small horizontal line to the position indicated.

Radius

YDist


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

Move the other small horizontal line to the position indicated.

Radius

YDist

XDist

Move this arrow line to the position shown. The size will need to be shortened.

Radius

YDist

XDist

Now, similarly move the otherarrow line.

Radius

YDist

Then move “YDist” to the cell between the two arrows.


N10 category name slots n11 template name circular slots diagram

XDist

This will probably be enough of a drawing for our part. When we get to the G-code, however, we may discover that we need to add something, so we won’t delete the unused lines just yet.

In this view, the colors of the segments in the drawing have been matched to the code that applies to each segment. Your next task will be to determine the end points for each segment and create the code.

Let’s take a look at the first eight lines of code. These have more to do with format than the picture we will create.

You can make line numbers and NAMES whatever you want (within some length restrictions).

Change the underlined text to that shown in red, to the right.

Similarly, you will need to find the end points for each segment of the template drawing and create the code.

Look at this line. You should see that it’s end points are: 13,10 and 13,24.

The code should read: (LINE[13,10][13,24]). The parentheses and brackets are important. Each line of code must be enclosed in parentheses. Coordinates are placed within brackets.

Now let’s do the arcs. For an arc you need to define a radius as well as end points. What is the radius and end points for the top arc?

End Points: 13,24 and 25,24

You should note that theses are the same as the endpoints of the two lines.

Radius: 6

Change the green code for arc (CW) to match the coordinates and radius.

You should have (CW[13,24] [25,24]). This direction (CW) has nothing to do with the actual tool movement. It is simply the direction from the first point to the second point.

Looking at the other arc we see that it’s end points are: 13,10 and 25,10 (the beginning points of the two lines). Therefore we need the following line of code:

(CW[25,10][13,10]).

Or

(CCW[13,10][25,10]).

Enter the code (CW[25,10][13,10]) after the other arc.

This completes the code for the DIAGRAM section.

The text (Radius, and Ydist) in this diagram will be placed in the PARAMETER section, which we will cover next.

If you wanted to enter some other text in the diagram, you would use a PRINT statement and give the coordinates for where you want the text to begin. For example:

(PRINT[18,15] G54)

Here is the sample code for the PARAMETER section. The lines indicated are pretty standard and will not need to be modified for this example. You could however, have some standard numbers for Tool Number, Work Offset, Rpm, or Feedrate instead of requiring the operator to input these.

To make the required input clearer, you should change “DpthCut” to“Zdepth”.

You will also need to change thecoordinatesorPOSITION of “YDist”.

On the graph, you can see that “YDist” starts at location 26,17. This is what you will need to put in the POSITION line.

Note: There must be a space between “POSITION” and the bracket.

Another piece of information we need the operator to input is the radius of the arcs. So, you will need to add a PARAMETER for “Radius”.

Also, since “Radius” shows on the template, you also will need to add a “POSITION” statement. The coordinates for “Radius” are 17,23.

At this point, you may want to create a program to make the cut for the part (if you don’t already have one). Here is an example of how we might write the code for this part.

You now have to determine what information the operator will provide and what you will need to calculate. The underlined codes at the right will not vary so we will not need variables for these.

Comparethe codeto your list of PARAMETERS. We first see that the operator will need to input a tool number represented by the variable “#ToolNo”.

Changethe code“T1” to “T#ToolNo”.

The statement “NO DECIMAL” indicates that the operator’s input for #ToolNo will be interpreted as a whole integer.

There is also a feed rate and a depth of cut that the operator will input, represented by the variables “#Feedrate” and “Zdepth”.

Positioning commands may be a little more complicated. Let’s say for the first move in X, for Cutter Compensation, we want to feed to a distance of the tool nose radius plus 0.1 from the side of the part. This could be represented by X(#Radius-#TNR-0.1). However, we have not yet defined #TNR.

TNR+0.1
