I am Electrical Engineering student and I am willing to write my Master's Thesis on G-Code that can be used for robotics. I know G-Codes are used in 5-axis PLC & CNC machines and i have very little bit knowledge on that. The main issue of my Master's Thesis is i need to apply those g-codes or i have to know the maths involved in converting the G-Codes to general robotics program's. I searched for this topic on many websites but i got no where. So please let me know

I find it hard to believe that 3 brakes went out at the same time? Possibly a sensor i don't know about? please help
Spindle will drop from programed speed to minimum speed at any time, in or out of cut high or low range, the active speed does not change on the screen, axis feed rate does not change. No error code is recorded. Service guy was here last Thursday, as you might guess it wouldn't fail for him. Anyone had this happen?
New to the forum and had just a general question of dealing with a difficult environment. Recently hired on as lead programmer at a medium sized shop that does a lot of 1 or 2 part runs, usually multiple setups. The method they seem to use to prove a program is to push the green button and walk away. If it doesn't throw an alarm on the machine screen it is assumed to be ok. No dry run, no single blocking, no real checking of any kind. We don't have and won't be getting any
