Basic G-code Programming for CNC Mills.
What you'll learn
- By the end of this course you will be able to Read, edit and hand-write basic G-code programs for 3-axis CNC mills.
- Basic knowledge of operating a CNC mill and basic operation of a PC is helpful but not required. Anyone interested in CNC programming will learn the basic skill-sets needed to write G-code programs.
This course teaches you how to hand write basic G-code programs for 3-axis CNC mills.
In this course you will learn how to write G-code for milling operations including;
Rough and Finish profile milling
Line Right and Line Left Cutter Compensation
How to determine the I and J values for Clockwise and Counterclockwise Arcs.
Canned Cycles for Drilling Operations
Calculating Feeds and Speeds for Milling, Drilling and Tapping
How to create and call Sub-Routines
Manage Sub-programs using the M98 command
At the end of each section you will find an attached PDF file with an exercise to practice your new skills
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to learn G-code programming that can be used on 3-axis mills such as Haas, Doosan, Mori, Mazak and more.
Hi, I am Tom Stikkelman and currently work as a CNC Programmer in the Memphis Tennessee area. I was born in Amsterdam, Holland and moved to the United States in 1980 after finishing high school.
I started my career as an apprentice machinist in 1985 after serving in the U.S Marines for 4 years. The first machine shop that hired and trained me was a large job shop that machined large components for military air planes. In 1992 I moved to the Memphis area and since have worked in Medical Instrument Manufacturing and Custom Industrial Machine building.
In the last 6 years, I have enjoyed teaching students all about Machining and CNC Programming.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family.
I enjoy watching soccer games, eating at restaurants and spending time at the beach.
