Learn about creating custom coordinate systems.
- [Instructor] All right, now that we've added our part…into our assembly,…we're ready to start doing…the machine operations,…but before we do that…we have to establish our work coordinate system,…and that's going to be where we're going to set…the origin of this part…and the relationship to the machine home position.…So most the time on most machines…you can use a G54 or G55, 56 and so on,…positioned to tell the machine…where this component is inside of the machine.…Now different machines use different systems,…like a Fadal, for instance,…might use an E value,…like E1234 and so on.…
Other machines might use, like, a P position,…so it would be, like,…a G54-P100, for instance.…Bu it really depends on who the manufacturer…of the machine is…and what work coordinate system methodology they're using,…but it doesn't really matter.…Figure out which system you're using…and then establish that component.…So a couple recommendations here.…One is you generally want to use some point…on this back edge here, right?…Because this face of the jaw doesn't move…
