D. Hide/Show machine body:
To hide/show machine body , select "Hide body" or "Show body" .
Move to the center of workpiece immediately .
F. Open/Close door
To open/close door , release Emergency button and power on , then select "Open door" or "Close door" .
Transform machine model:
A. To rotate machine model , click left mouse button and drag it .
B. To zoom in and out machine model ,roll mouse wheel to zoom .
C. To pan machine model , press mouse wheel and drag with it to pan .
Tips for transforms:
Estimate CNC machining time for a CNC program .
1.Import : Import a CNC program under which EDIT mode is available and a CNC file is opened or created .
2.Save workpiece : Save machined workpiece .
3.Read workpiece : Read saved workpiece .
1.Displaying programming trace:
When on , show programming trace during auto run . When off , hide programming trace.
When on , show body , when off ,hode body.
3. Sound effect:
When on , enable sound , when off , disable sound .
4. Shadow effect:
When on , enable shadow effect , when off , disable shadow effect . If some obsolete display adapters cause several types of problems , such as running slowly , the option better be disabled .
1.View panels : When CNC panel is closed , use the menu to reopen CNC panel .
2.Show in dual monitors : Separately show panels and 3D model in dual monitors .
Switch CNC system to one another .
Select type of workpiece , workpiece types : box and cylinder . Improve the smoothness of workpiece you can see on the screen :
1. Performance : Jaggies
2. Balance : Less jaggies
3. Quality : Smooth , you will experience a decrease in performance with the high value .
It is recommended to select a value based on how your display adapter can perform .
Check if a newer version .
2. Tool select
Click the left tool icon in the machine view, the Tool library dialog pops up. A tool list on the left side displaying all tools , another list on the right side displaying the tools on turret. The parameters of tool and insert are shown below.
Add a tool:
Enter new parameters for a new tool and then press “Add” button.
2 . Modify :
Click an item in the tool list , the selected tool’s parameters will be shown below, modify them and then press “Modify” button.
3 . Delete:
Click an item in the tool list and then press “Delete” button, the selected tool will be deleted.
4 . Mount tool:
Right Click an item in the tool list or press “Mount to>>” button after clicking an item in the tool list, the menu showing the turret station number will pop up, select a station where a tool will be mounted.
Click an item in the turret list, press “Tool ready” , the turret will rotate and index the selected station to the machining position .
3. CNC Panel
FANUC 0iM Control panel
Auto Edit MDI INC

Rate for INC mode :0.001 , 0.01 , 0.1 , 1.0
Main spindle override
A. Edit program
PressEdit button and then PROG button on system panel , select "DIR" , as following :
1. Open a CNC program : Enter a CNC program name that exsits in the system , such as "O0001" , press ArrowDown button on system panel to open it .
2. Create a CNC program : Enter a CNC program name that doesn't exist in the system , such as "O0001" , press "Insert" button . Program protect must be unlocked before creating a new CNC program .
3. Edit a CNC program :
Use the three buttons to edit a program : Alter , Insert , Delete . Edit is not available until program protect is unlocked .
4.Delete a CNC program : Enter a CNC program name , press "Delete" button .
5.Import a CNC program from your disk:
Switch to EDIT mode in the Simulation , and then either create or open a CNC program .
New a Notepad text file .
Enter or paste CNC program into the text file .
Select "Save as" and select "Save as type:" as "All files" .
Enter a file name , such as "XXXX.cnc" or "XXXX.nc" .
Use Import menu in the Simulation to select the file , click "Open" .
The file is imported.
B. Auto run
Open , create or import a CNC program , press , then press Cycle start .
Press to enable Single Block . When on , CNC program will be executed in a single block , when off , the function is disabled .
C. Offset input
Select edge finer from left tool bar and mount it to main spindle .
Use Right Button menu to select Panel XOZ , press to approach slowly to the edge of workpiece until LED is on , as following:
Moving mouse onto tool shank ,the tool information will be shown，and then right-click on the tool shank to pop up the menu as below:
Select “Tool ready” , the turret will index the station to the machining position.
Right-click on the machine view to pop up the menu , select “Move to center” ,the tool nose aligns with the center of work piece.
Press “OFFSET SETTING”,an image shown as below:
Press “OFFSET” soft key，enter “X0”，press “Measure” soft key, offset for X is done, Z axis is the same as X.
Select "Work" , an image shown as following:
UseArrow button to select G54 , enter X50 , select "Measure" .
Steps for Y axis is similar to steps for X axis .
Steps for Z axis : Mount a tool on main spindle , approach to the surface of workpiece slowly and cut it slightly , enter "Z0" , select "Measure" . For more information ,download :the video tutorial on http://www.greatsim.com/Support/presettool.rar
Pressbutton , pressbutton , an image shown as following：
Select "MDI" , enter a block , such as "G54X0Y0Z0" , press to execute the block you enter .
4.Use Hand Wheel
To use Hand Wheel , Double Click on Hand Wheel . To close Hand Wheel , Double Click on it again.
If there is a problem with displaying 3D model , please make sure the hardware accelerations are enabled before running the application .
