Creating Toolpaths for a CNC Lathe
CNC machines come in an almost endless array of configurations for various applications. So far, we've only talked about CNC Mills; more specifically vertical milling centers. In this course we turn our attention to the CNC Lathe. We identify the difference in a lathe’s coordinate system, tools, and how to create lathe specific toolpaths.
After this course, you'll be able to:
- Explore toolpaths for CNC Lathes.
- Identify a lathe coordinate system.
- Choose lathe specific tools.
- Create turning toolpaths.
