writing subroutines
« on: February 21, 2019, 09:57:41 AM »
Hello Chaps ,
I seem to be running around in circles like a fowl with its head cut off.
I am sure someone can help me
I want to machine a rod down to a certain diameter using a subroutine
and parameters
#1 is the starting diameter
#2 is the finished diameter
#3 is the depth of cut
(The material between the two diameters has to be removed .)
For ease of understanding lets say start at 103mm and machine down
to 89mm in 2 mm depth of cut.
My intention is to take the first cut and jump into a subroutine,
execute the subroutine the correct number of times  until 1 mm is left
then jump out of the subroutine and do a final cut of 1mm

If someone could post a bit of code that I can work through that does this-
then I would be very happy
Many thanks
and best regards

fred

See this topic for canned cycle for turning down to a diameter:

There is a wizard to do the same.
