These subjects are the building blocks of training newcomers on a specific CNC machine tool.
Parameters tell the CNC every little detail about the specific machine tool being used, and how all CNC features and functions are to be utilized.
It is common to machine several identical workpiece attributes from within a single program. Consider the four identical circular counter-bored holes that must be milled in the workpiece shown in Figure 1.
