m98 help includes arc cut
« on: June 11, 2008, 06:29:11 AM »
what i'm trying to do is move an endmill into position of the first arc cut, the repeat the arc cut 5 times to the finish dimension, while incrementing each successive cut +.050 in the x direction.  basically i want to position the cutter, take one radius cut go back to the home position of the arc cut, move over .050 and then do another arc cut.  then repeat the arc cuts until i'm at the final dimension of the part.  here is a code i started with...

G0 G49 G40  G17 G80 G50 G90
M6 T1(TOOL DIA. 0.375)
G20 (Inch)
M03 S300
G00 G43 H1  Z0.1
g42 X-3.7498 Y-3.0012
G01 Z-1.575 F10
M98 P1 L5
g00 Z0.1
M5 M9

G3 X0 Y3.2704 r5 F5
G1 X0 Y-3.2704
G1 X.050 F10

in case anyone has anything like this to do in the future.  the above code is correct, but it will cut a 10" diameter arc.
