This CNC program example shows how both G72.1 and G72.2 figure copy functions can call one-another in one part program, read Programming Notes below carefully.
Fanuc G72.1 Rotational Copy
Using G72.1 Rotational Copy G-code a figure specified by a subprogram can be repeatedly produced with Rotational movement.

Fanuc G72.2 Linear Copy
Using G72.2 Linear Copy G-code a figure specified by a subprogram can be repeatedly produced with Linear movement.

Fanuc G81 Drilling Cycle
G81 drilling cycle is used for simple drilling/spot drilling operations.

Specifying two or more commands to copy a figure
- G72.1 cannot be specified more than once in a subprogram for making a rotational copy (If this is attempted, alarm PS0900 will occur).
- G72.2 cannot be specified more than once in a subprogram for making a linear copy (If this is attempted, alarm PS0901 will occur).
- In a subprogram that specifies rotational copy, however, linear copy can be specified. Similarly, in a subprogram that specifies linear copy, rotational copy can be specified.
