Rapid traverse G00
G00 Linear interpolation in rapid traverse (modal) |
When G00 is selected, the rapid traverse velocity of the axes (specified in the machine parameters) is used for motion velocity. This results in an axis velocity where at least one axis is moved at its rapid traverse velocity.
Any number of straight lines can be programmed in the Cartesian spatial coordinate system (X, Y, Z). All programmed tracking axes move at linear velocity in such a way that the start and end of their motion take place simultaneously with the main axes.
Programing Example
Rapid traverse G00
;Absolute dimensional input:
N10 G00 G90 X120 Y80 U90 ;move from P1 to P2
;Incremental dimensional input:
N10 G00 G91 X80 Y60 U60 ;move from P1 to P2
Special case: Aligning a circular axis using G00 G90
If a rotary axis is programmed using G00 when G90 is active (G90: Absolute programming), the programmed target point is calculated in modulo, i.e. the rotary axis moves by a maximum of half a rotation.
