Working plane <PLANE>


<PLANE> command is used to define active machining plane. Commonly this command is processed into G17, G18, G19 G-codes. Active plane is used in circular interpolation (it defines plane of arcs), to implement tool radius offset, to define hole machining cycles etc.

 

Command:

PLANE XY(33) | YZ(37) | XZ(41) | YX(133) | ZY(137) | ZX(141)

 

Parameters:

Parameter

CLD array

Description

XY(33)

YZ(37)

XZ(41)

YX(133)

ZY(137)

ZX(141)

CLD[1]

CLD.Plane

Plane code:

33 – XY,

37 – YZ,

41 – XZ,

133 – YX,

137 – ZY,

141 – ZX.

 

To create ISO postprocessor use ISO.G mask, which is assigned the plane code automatically:

CLD item value

ISO value

CLD[1] = 33

ISO.G = 17

CLD[1] = 37

ISO.G = 19

CLD[1] = 41

ISO.G = 18
