|This model was written for students to learn about the G-codes used by most NC machining center controllers. The model extracts the x-y coordinates from the G-code instructions for plotting in TK. The x-y coordinates are also written to a list in fixed format so that the data are available for importing into a CAD program. In this way a lost or misplaced drawing of a part can be reconstructed from its NC program.
