General Program Format

a.      Handwrite code in a text editor such as Notepad

b.      A percent (%) sign must appear as the first and last line of every program

c.       The second line of code should follow the format: O##### (Name of Program)

d.      At the beginning of each operation and next to each tool change, leave a comment in parentheses stating what the operation is:

                                                  i.      For example (DRILLING OP) or T303 (0.5″ Jobber Drill)

                                                ii.      The machine ignores any comments in parentheses, but comments cannot be greater than 80 characters and cannot contain additional parenthesis inside parentheses

e.      Before the last percent sign at the end of the program, specify an M30 which denotes program end

f.        All coordinate values should be written with a decimal place

                                                  i.      G00 X3 will be interpreted as “rapid to an X-axis position that is a distance of 0.0003” from spindle centerline”

                                                ii.      G00 X3.0 will be interpreted as “rapid to an X-axis position that is a distance of 3.0” from spindle centerline”

                                              iii.      CAUTION: MAKING THIS ERROR CAN CAUSE A COLLISION.  ALWAYS PROOFREAD YOUR CODE, RUN A SIMULATION, AND DO A DRY RUN AT 5% RAPID EVERYTIME ANY CHANGE IS MADE TO A PROGRAM, NO MATTER HOW SMALL THE CHANGE MAY BE.
