About CNC Wood Router G code
CNC Router can read G code. Well, what is G code? General code is the programming language that CNC wood router (http://www.omni-cnc.com) read to cut a digitally created design into wood or another material. A basic code created by most computer-aided design and manufacturing software, G-code typically is written as a "g" followed by a two-digit code that indicates different aspects of the cutting job, such as cutting axis, motor speed or type of drilling. Similarly, M-codes are included in the programming language to operate external devices such as spindles or coolant systems, and to end the program.
What software can creat such G code? Many CAM software can do it. Such as type3, Artcam, Ucancam, UG, AlphaCAM etc.
What should I do after I get G code file? Please input it to cnc wood router machine control system, then the system could read it.
