CNC part programming is one of the function involved in the production of precision components using CNC machines. In most of the applications, the part programming is done manually by programming the necessary G & M codes. However, it becomes necessary to use an computer assisted programming system to' program the toolpath for complex shapes such as dies, patterns. In the early days, soft wares incorporating the high level commands such as APT were used for this purpose. However, programming such packages is found to be tedious and time consuming. With the availability of graphical based programming softwares, the programmer can generate the necessary programs quickly, by defining the part geometry and machining parameters. This paper discusses the features of a graphical based CNC programming software and scope of its usage.
