Use of G - Code in CNC cutting

Postby SysBot » Sun Jun 28, 2015 4:09 pm

G-code or the G programming computer language, is the standard coding used in all CNC machines. These machines are used for cutting plastics, wood, metal etc controlled by a computerized system.
With the help of G-codes, the user is able to command the machine to cut something in accordance to their unique requirements and preferences.

G-codes derive their name from the fact that the code's commands code used for CNC cutting always begins with the letter
It simply tells the CNC machine what action it needs to perform.

You should check out the free ebooks here at Bookboon. They are not necessarily on GCode Alone, but they also feature great insight into CNC and learning of Machining.

This would be something you learn on the side as you practice your craft. Some ready made hobby mills like the Badog PUP come with inbuilt packages that will make your cutting as easy as pie.
