The CNC Milling operation, all the three axis X, Y and Z are used to represent the movement of the worktable and the cutting tool. G00 and G01 codes are being used while preparation of part programs. The major challenge in the part programming phase of the Milling operation is to deal with various complex shapes and structure to be machined which requires a complicated set of part programs that needs to be highly efficient, less time consuming and error free. Few complicated programming associated with the Milling operation process samples of which are discussed below.
