These G-Code Shortcuts Will Speed Up Your Programming Process Significantly
If you are someone who tends to hand-code your programs and are looking for a way to speed up the process, this video is for you! Marc from @G-Code Tutor talks about some life-saving g-code shortcuts.
He starts by looking at how to program 45-degree chamfers point-to-point, and how to do the maths to calculate the start and end points.
Then on to canned cycles and repetitive cycles to speed up our manual programming, reduce the amount of code we need to write and make our programs much easier to read.
Using subroutines and subprograms is another great way to reduce the amount of code we need to write and reduce the time it takes to write our program.
Finally, Marc talks about using pre-written boilerplate code to enable us to copy/paste sections of a proven program to decrease errors and makes writing a new program very quick indeed.
