Cartesian to Polar coordinate programming converts X,Y position commands into rotary C-Axis and linear X-axis moves. Cartesian to Polar coordinate programming greatly reduces the amount of code required to command complex moves. Normally a straight line would require many points to define the path, however, in Cartesian, only end points are necessary. This feature allows face machining programming in the Cartesian coordinate system.
