Written by the author of the bestselling CNC Programming Handbook and the recent release Fanuc CNC Custom Macros, this practical and very useful resource covers several programming subjects, including how to program cams and tapered end mills, that are virtually impossible to find anywhere. Other, more common, subjects, such as cutter radius offset and thread milling are covered in great depth.

Distinctive Features

Presents detailed part programming suggestions for a variety of machining operations.

Includes discussions on the following major subjects: thread milling methods, knurling, programming cams, part reversal methods, using pallet changers, applying special grooving and threading techniques, and many more.

Provides numerous illustrations, charts, tables, and practical examples, allowing users to fully understand all concepts.

Many methods presented can also be adapted to programming methods using a CAM system.

This handbook by Smid on the subject of CNC programming tackles the subject from a different angle than his bestselling "CNC Programming Handbook". That book is a more basic one aimed at beginners. This book is more advanced and contains several programming subjects that are very difficult to find either in other books or on the web. Even where there is overlap with the author's "CNC Programming Guide", this book provides much more depth of coverage on various subjects than that book does. As is standard with this author, this book includes many clear detailed drawings that greatly assist in visualizing the procedures covered. Whenever applicable, a complete programming example is provided. Equations and all tools used in each example are boxed and clearly labeled. As always, this author's instructions and explanations are clear and detailed. I show the table of contents next as the best way of explaining the book's contents:
1. Part Program Development
