Whats up guys. I am new to the CNC game. I have a good basic understanding of how the machine works and how to program. I am
learning a ton every day. Im needing a little help programing and running a part.
I am using Fanuc controls trying to cut a .250 ball on the end of a
.3125 shaft with a .125 neck. Everything is working good except for
my radius. I am using a .117 multi dir. parting tool to cut the radius. I may
be way off by using the parting tool. But I think and was told it should work.
The problem is the radius does not start at X0.0 were I want it to start.
There is a flat on the front of the part and also on across the top of
the ball. So I dont end up with a round ball.
Here is my G code that I have in the machine.
G01 Z0.0 F0.001
G03 X.250 Z-.125 R.125
G03 X.125 Z-.3583 R.125
Any help you can give would be great.
