G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / g73 peck drill cycle
« on: March 24, 2012, 03:50:13 PM »
Hi, I'm new to gcode and have a question about the peck drilling routine, G73.  I'd like to be able to adjust the retract distance and it seems that I can't--unless I'm missing something.  i've got the z depth to .8, R (the start depth) at 0.0 (Z), L (num of cycles ) set at 1, Q(depth of peck) is set at 20.  I'd like to be able to pull the drill clear of the material after each peck.  Can any one tell me how to do that other than programming manually with G1?

Thanks  in advance for any help

I am new to Mach 3 and learning g code finally.  I see a lot of advantages in the wizard utilities and I wonder if there's a tutorial or an into site that tells you how to get started writing wizards for a 3 axis cnc machine.  Thanks in advance for any and all help.
