Parameterise contour modes in the NC program

Before the actual activation of polynomial contouring (G61 / G261), the individual options are parameterised by the NC command #CONTOUR MODE.

Depending on the contour mode, specific keywords are provided for parameterisation. The command mainly consists of the following syntax:

#CONTOUR MODE[<contour_mode> <parameter> <action> ]

<contour_mode>:

DEV

Contour corner deviation (default)

DIST

Contour corner distance

DIST_SOFT

Dynamic optimised contouring

DIST_MASTER

Dynamic optimised contouring with master axis

POS

Contour with interim point

PTP

Dynamically optimised contouring of the contour.

<parameter>:

PATH_DEV,

TRACK_DEV,

...

Caution:

The parameters for deviations and tolerances must always be specified in [mm, inch] or [°]. When specifying in [inch], please refer to the note in P-CHAN-00439.

<action>:

PRE_ACTION

 

Execute M/H actions related to the contouring curve

INTER_ACTION

POST_ACTION
