A safe way to troubleshoot a program is to press GRAPHICS to run it in graphics mode. No movement occurs on the machine, instead the movement is illustrated on the screen.

  • Key Help Area The lower-left part of the graphics display pane is the function key help area. This area shows you the function keys that you can use, and a description of what they do.

  • Locator Window The lower-right part of the pane displays the simulated machine table area, and it shows where the simulated view is zoomed and focused.

  • Tool Path Window The large window in the center of the display gives a simulated view of the work area. It displays a cutting tool icon and simulated tool paths.

    note: Feed motion appears as a black line. Rapid moves appear as a green line. Drill cycle locations appear with an X.
    note: If Setting 253 is ON, the tool diameter is shown as a thin line. If it is OFF, the tool diameter specified in the Tool Offsets Diameter Geometry table is used.
  • Zoom Press F2 to display a rectangle (zoom window) that shows the area that the zoom operation will move to. Use PAGE DOWN to decrease the size of the zoom window (zoom in), and use PAGE UP to increase the size of the zoom window (zoom out). Use the cursor arrow keys to move the zoom window to the location you want to zoom, and press ENTER to complete the zoom. The control scales the tool path window to the zoom window. Run the program again to display the tool path. Press F2 and then HOME to expand the Tool Path window to cover the entire work area.

  • Z-Axis Part Zero Line The horizontal line on the Z-Axis bar at the top-right corner of the graphics screen gives the position of the current Z-axis work offset plus the length of the current tool. While a program simulation runs, the shaded portion of the bar indicates the depth of the simulated Z-Axis motion relative to the Z-Axis work zero position.

  • Position PaneThe position pane displays axis locations just as it would during a live part run.

To run a program in graphics mode:

  1. Press SETTING and navigate to the GRAPHICS page.
  2. Press CYCLE START.
    note: Graphics mode does not simulate all machine functions or motions.
