$10 Enroll

Full course description

Course Description

A CNC lathe moves on two axes of travel. It uses a machine coordinate system and a part coordinate system to identify positions on the axes. Learning about how a CNC lathe moves and identifies positions will help you understand how the geometry of a part is defined and how the part is machined.

By the end of this course, you will be able to

• Define movements on the Z-axis

• Define movements on the X-axis

• Describe the machine coordinate system

• Define machine home

• Describe the part coordinate system

• Define part zero

• Describe how ordered pairs are used to define the geometry of a part
