CNC Mill Programming Exercise using G91 Incremental Programming

This CNC mill programming exercise will give you more idea to understand drawing and how to find exact coordinate of each drawing point.
Completely based on G91 Incremental Dimensioning System, so cnc programmers/machinists can learn and understand how G91 Incremental Programming works.
This program is written for 4-axis CNC mill, where C-axis is used for rotary table.
3-axis CNC mill can also run this program, so for this just remove program block no. N15.

Explanation of CNC G-Code

G00 : Rapid traverse.
G54 : Zero Offset no. 1.
G64 : Continuous-path mode.
G90 : Absolute dimensioning system.
G91 : Incremental dimensioning system.
G17 : X-Y plan selection.
G42 : Cutter radius compensation activation (right hand side movement)
G40 : Cutter radius compensation de-active
S : Spindle speed
F : Axises motion feed
M : Cutter motion (3=clockwise, 4=anti-clockwise)
D : Tool no
