How to Write a Finishing Sequence on a CNC Lathe Using G-Code
Writing a finishing sequence on a lathe using G-Code is quick and easy if we utilize a subroutine when programming the roughing operation. In this video, Marc from G-Code Tutor demonstrates how he writes the G-Code for the finishing operation. He explains each G-Code command and guides us step by step through writing this sequence line by line. Often, it is quicker to write lathe programs using G-Code than it is by using CAD/CAM software, as we can copy/paste existing code and modify it to suit our needs. A skilled G-Code programmer can save hours of time setting up a new part for machining.
