G-code Toolpath in Action
The real-world applications for G-code are nearly limitless. You can execute a toolpath relative to either Remote TCP or Regular TCP, by generating G-code toolpaths in Autodesk Fusion 360 or SOLIDWORKS.
What does a workflow look like?
- Define a G-code toolpath in CAD/CAM software
- Import the G-code toolpath into Polyscope 5.6+ via USB
- Tell the robot where the toolpath is
- Execute your toolpath in a Polyscope program
“You’re able to take a CAD file and output a G-code tool path like you would use on a mill. This gives you really good, precise control over where your welds end up going on your part.”
Zach Northway, Co-owner of Flywheel Supply
