From the Computer Numerical Control program, this CNC Principles segment highlights the rectangular coordinate system and its use in generating precision tool paths. Integral elements of the rectangular coordinate system are presented, including: program zero, coordinate points, coordinate polarity, the absolute mode, the incremental mode, quadrants, and the various axes of motion.
