I'm just about going to get my feet wet with a new CNC gang tool lathe with a Fanuc controller. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a G-code chart or reference that identifies and spells out all the parameters and syntax for the different codes and which parameters are optional. I know that some codes have none but others have lots, e.g. G73 with X, Y, Z, R, L, Q, A, B, C, ad nauseum. I have not been able to find a quick reference for all this or did y'all learn this one code at a time and make your own references over time. I have been reading the books on this (Fanuc manuals, etc) but I'm looking for some complete cheat-sheet or chart. If there's nothing out there I suppose I'll be making my own over time and experience.
The machine I'm getting also has cylindrical and polar interpolation capability so the details on those g-codes (g12.1, g13.1, g7.1 or g107) would be valuable as well.
Thanks for any help or pointers to references.
Take a look at this, its put out by Daewoo for their lathes and its really good, with a lot of useful information.
Holy crap! 102 pages, and there's goodies all through it! May have to get a new cartridge for the printer, but it'll be worth it! Lots of stuff in there I already know, but my newbies could really use it as a reference.

A collection , generally, of the kind of stuff that shows up in the yellow boxes (what addresses go with what codes) throughout the document which would condense down to only be about 2 pages along with the chart on page 6 is what I'm after as a "cheat sheet" although the detailed examples are well worth it, too.
It beats the 800 pages of the Fanuc manual! All this stuff ends up in brain memory after a while and hands on will do it.
