Freshman Engineering Class Learns CNC G-Coding
Ms. Batt's Freshman Engineering class recently learned how to hand write the G-Code to mill their designs into wax blocks. G-Code is the generic name for a control language for CNC machines. It is a way to tell the machine to move to various points at a desired speed, control the spindle speed, turn on and off various coolants, and all sorts of other things. Learning G-Code is a stepping stone to using advanced manufacturing machines such as Haas Mills. Below are examples of their work as well as the machine they used to program and make the designs.
