Tutorial Lathe 1 - 2D Construction of a Part for Turning

Sample 2D part.

This tutorial demonstrates one of many ways in which the 2-dimensional part above can be drawn in CIMCO CNC-Calc V8. Since the part is symmetric about the horizontal axis, only a subsection of the part needs to be drawn. The complete part emerges from mirroring. The part will be used to generate turning toolpaths, so we only need to draw the outer contour of the upper half.

This tutorial demonstrates the use of the following functions:
