Creating Toolpaths for a CNC Lathe
CNC machines come in an almost endless array of configurations for various applications. So far, we have 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.
