Learn the basics of G-code programming. Learn how to cut real-world objects on a CNC machine using G-code routines.
- Hi, I'm Gabriel Corbett, and welcome to G-Code Programming for CNC Foundations. In this course, we'll learn how to read, write, and understand G-code. We'll be focusing on the key G-codes and how they work and what they can make a CNC machine do. This course is divided into two parts. The first part of most movies will be learning about the codes and how they were created. Then we're going to go over and head to the Haas Factory and run our programs on this machine.
We're going to see firsthand how each of the G-codes operates and what's required to run on one of these machines. We'll cover the basic codes, like rapid and feed moves, and then progress into more advanced topics, like cutter compensation and tapping. The great thing about learning each of these codes is we can run them on a real CNC machine and then modify the codes to see what happens. We'll wrap it up with CNC machining a complete part, starting with spot drilling, drilling, tapping, and then using advanced adaptive contouring routines for the outside roughing and pocketing.
Get ready to see some chips fly. This course is going to be a lot fun, so let's get started.
