Rectangular Coordinates

The four quadrants of the XY coordinate plane (ManufacturingET.org) Most people are familiar with therectangular (or Cartesian) coordinate system. This system of coordinate planes uses real number lines arranged at right angles to allow any point in space to be clearly and unambiguously determined. In mathematics, the order of the coordinates (separated by a comma) designates a point on the graph. For instance (2,3) would designate a point with an X value of 2 and a Y value of 3. The syntax for this point is very similar in G-Code programming. This will be discussed later in this chapter. The sign of each coordinate (whether it is positive or negative) is just as important (if not more important) as the value. For example, (3,2) is nowhere near (-3,-2). It is helpful to position the coordinate grid such that it the programmer only needs to work in one quadrant. The coordinate plane (the XY plane) divides neatly into four quadrants. In the first quadrant (I) , both coordinates are positive (+,+) in the second (II), the X coordinate is negative, but the Y coordinate is positive (-,+). The other two quadrants, III and IV, work in the same way. Working in a single quadrant will help eliminate errors. When this is not possible, at least try to position the grid so that the origin is a place that would be obvious to an operator or other programmer. This system of planes can be overlaid on top of a machine table or workpiece to enable the machine to be directed to any point on the workpiece or machine table. In the figure below, the programmer has oriented the coordinate system so it is aligned with a particular workpiece to be cut. Since all the cutting will take place in the First Quadrant (I), the program will have all positive X and Y values when the tool is over the part.

XY plane superimposed on a workpiece (R. Hewitt, Manufacturing ET.org) It is the ease at which a set of Cartesian coordinates can be converted into machine-readable numbers that allows CNC to be really quite easy to program. These coordinates correspond with machine axes. Primary linear axes are X, Y, and Z.

Find the Z axis by looking for the spindle rotation. (R. Hewitt, ManufacturingET.org) One of the first steps in programming is to be able to identify the axes of motion on the machine tool you are programming. rotation. As a general rule of thumb, the Z axis is the direction of motion that is along the axis of spindle

counterclockwise) is parallel to the Z axis. The depth of a drilled hole is usually determined by a Z coordinate. On a lathe it may be a little less intuitive, but the rule still holds. On a lathe the workpiece is mounted in the spindle by means of a chuck or other workholding device. The axis that the spindle rotates around is the Z axis. A typical two-axis lathe would have X and Z axes. The X axis corresponds to the diameter of the workpiece, and the Z axis corresponds to where the tool is located along the length of the workpiece.

On a lathe, the Z axis may not be intuitive, but it is still aligned with the spindle rotation (R. Hewitt, ManufacturingET.org)

Right hand rule for axis orientation and direction. (R. Hewitt, ManufacturingET.org) After finding the Z axis, the X axis is usually the easiest to find. Most of the time, the X axis is parallel to the floor. The X axis will be orthogonal (at a right angle) to the Z axis. Finally the Y axis will be at a right angle to both the X and Z axis. The orientation of these three axes follows what is known as the right hand rule. If you

orient your right thumb with the Z axis, the X and Y axes can be aligned with your index and middle finger respectively. The tips of your fingers will be show the positive direction of each axis. Bear in mind that we have only discussed the direction of the axes and how they are oriented with respect to each other. The major point that we have not talked about is where the origin is for these coordinate systems. This will be discussed later in this chapter under G54-G59 Work Coordinate System Offset (page).

A special kind of rectangular coordinates are diametral or diameter coordinates. in an absolute distance from the origin. coordinates. A common lathe program would require cutting a profile in the Z, X plane such as the one pictured in Figure 4. The coordinates of points 1 through 3 would be as follows: Diameter coordinates are rectangular coordinates, but one axis (such as the axis of the cross slide of a lathe) is given in diameters rather than Lathe toolpaths are most commonly programmed using diameter

Diameter coordinates are differnt from regular rectangular coordinats (R. Hewitt, ManufacturingET.org)

Notice this is different from an ordinary rectangular coordinate system with respect to how the X values are found. For instance, an ordinary coordinate system would assign point 1 an X value 3.0 but a diameter coordinate system assigns a value of 6.0. This may seem unusual at first, but it is useful for programming a lathe because one axis always determines the diameter of round parts.

Polar Coordinates

Polar coordinates define points by giving their angle (from a base line) and a distance from a particular point. Polar coordinates are commonly used to describe a circular array of holes, such as a bolt hole circle. Polar coordinates can be converted to rectangular coordinates by trigonometry as shown below (for a review of basic trigonometry, see Appendix A Foundational Mathematics). Keep in mind that polar coordinates are not the same thing as diameter coordinates.
