Using Subroutines with G70
In this video, Marc, AKA the GCodeTutor, explains how we use subroutines to reuse our tool paths to minimize our code and speed up the programming process.
When we have programmed a roughing cycle, we can either program the same tool path again for our finishing cycle or we can use subroutines to recall that tool path again. By using a subroutine we can cut down the amount of code that we need to write.
By using P and Q values that match the program number lines. We can recall that section of the program with just one line of code.
