CNC Dictionary
« on: December 29, 2011, 05:28:49 PM »
 I was thinking of a dictionary that covers the both the unfamiliar CNC terminology and also converts from Chinese English, to Mach3 English.

 I for one could really use something! CNC terms may not be immediately clear to the layperson.
 
I have found it very difficult interpreting the names given to in-outs (that is a new word that I have made up to describe inputs and outputs) on the servo driver that I am trying to wire up.
If such a thing doesn't exist we should make one.

I volunteer to start things off (see attached)

Cheers

I actually think its a good idea. There is a computer magazine which highlights certain words or abbreviations in red so you know at the side of the page is a fuller but basic description.

Dave, you have allready started it.  Lets see how this thread goes.  How about if anyone has a word that they would like someone to define they post it here and all of us can contribute.  If anyone has one they think would help others they can list here with the definition.  If it does good we can create a dictionary and all of us can work to keep it updated.  Graham has given us a great example to start it off with.

BOB
Acronym meaning BreakOut Board
Breakout boards are a common electrical components that take a bundled cable and “breaks out” each conductor to a terminal that can easily accept a hook-up wire for distribution to another device. They are a common item in electronic projects and enable easy, clean installation of electronic devices.

What about Redneck ;D Ok sorry couldnt resist ;D

On a serious note, In-outs is normally written as I/O, just meaning Inputs/Outputs.
