-G-Codes for fun!-


 All Units in Millimeters (mm)

Here is yet another one of those "what I looked for as a beginner page." I looked and looked but never found any place that gave examples of G-Codes (except for one 2D Disney picture example, thanks!).  I mainly wanted them so I could see and hear how the motors sound and since I had NO clue where to start this took sometime.  I also wanted to see a 3D file in action. I did not have a 3D converting program or knew enough about CAD or converting to really know how to convert my own. Thanks Jeff M. for helping me figure out how to upload the G-Codes and movies :-)

Each picture is in mm unit as well as the G-Code. All G-Code is for Sherline size machines but could be scaled if wanted. All of these are my own and just for fun, mostly to watch the machine move and hear the beautiful music. Also, if you don't have a NC simulator, download CNC Simulator, AutoEditNC (they are free) or Cutviewer or CNCProz to watch the code in action. As you get well into machining you will find these type of programs to be of great help.

none 3D, FOR DEMO ONLY! 
Do not cut out this part as it will kill your endmill and machine. Single toolpath. Part height is about 35 mm. Put all axis in the middle of your machine and then run the code. Watch as all 3 axis gracefully move in sync and listen to the beautiful music from the motors.
The Z axis only goes positive (up) so make sure you have enough travel space.

CNC PLAQUE
I would use Scotch double-side tape to hold 1/8" wood or metal (main material) to a wooden block which can be held by a vice or double-side taped to the mill's table. Remember, this part gets fully cut so make sure it's held correctly and not mounted to the mill's table.

Order: First, "CNC" is pocketed then finished at final depth. After that, the line is engraved. Finally, the circle and border is cut out

Part shown from CncWizard. This picture was taken at the Cleveland OH air show, one of the best air shows I have been too! It's a replica of a Gee Bee with two war birds in the background.
