I have a small aluminum L shaped piece. Imagine a capital L.

The longest side is 8.75"

The bottom is 4.25"

The inside cut of the upright is 7.5"

The upper side of the bottom is 2.75"

I would only like to cut the X sides 7.5" length in incremements of say .005 (it is a Sherline, I need to be cautious)

I would also like to cut the Y sides 2.75" the same amount til a 1/4" is removed, 50 passes?

Can both sides be cut in 1 pass? I do this thru the MDI with a calculator, its tedious and there has got to be a better way. I have never written anything but single lines.

So if I started the part cutting on x0 y0 with the z side milling only

Surface of part is z-3 as z home is at top of mill column.

Part is 1/2" thick

G00 X0 Y0 Z-2.95

G01 Z-3.30 F5

G17 X7.5 Y2.8 ? How do I get incrememntal cuts M98? P? L50? I would love to see a few steps done automatically. Thanks

Nobody has any advice?
