Canned Cycle

Cycles that are available from the CNC Control builder. The most common are drilling cycles. Where the expected motion is called from a singular call which usually also includes parameters to define that motion.

“Long Hand”

The opposite of a “Canned Cycle” where the motion is explicit and is defined verbatim as one would expect the motion to move. A great example is emulating a peck drilling cycle through a series of G1 pecks then a G0 retract

Modality

The state of being “Modal” where a code remains active after being called once. Typically codes like Coolant are called once and are modal. Other codes like G28 or “Non-Modal” as they are only valid on the singular line of code they are called

Inverse Time

Typically used in 4/5 Axis machining. Most machines are programmed in Inches per minute (MMPM) where the feedrate is defined in speed of travel. Inverse time is defining the cutting rate by defining the amount of time it takes to machine one unit of traveled distance
