# FabriCAM Software Numerical Controls Visual Language (Part 7) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam cnc visual language

When it comes to the Numerical Control feature, It has its own visual language that if learned will help you understand the workflow.

Most programs have their own visual language that should be designed to make the program and feature more understandable and easy to navigate.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.
Next video covers Saving Numerical Controls.
Previous video covered Numerical Control Information.

#### Video Transcript

are you guys? In today's video? We're gonna be looking at our N. C or numerical controls visual language, and this will be for the camp feature, but otherwise before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make sure we need you to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates otherwise went back into the programme here. Now a visual language of the programme is quite an important thing because that helps you, at least if it's designed while to navigate the programme rather quickly and have a good understanding of what's happening. So just as a quick example here on this basic uh, three d display, er can see, we've got a basic visual language going. So they've always made the back steel cut out grey, so you can quickly understand what it is. They have numbers on the shape so we can quickly identify. This is shape number one, shape number two, shape number three, and then I also have a colour language here, which they add to the different shapes so you can quickly identify and get back to the right shape. Now, that's just an example on this, uh, piece actual. How can we say divisional language now? The cam and N. C. Has its own visual language, So let's have a quick look at that. I'm gonna go back into the camp, and then we're gonna go to the N. C. So once we enter the N. C, we can see everything changed. Now, few things have gone blue and some white, and we also have some arrow and I can't say directional lines. So let's first look at that. We've covered kind of before, but let's just have a quick overview. So we've got here little arrows showing the direction of things. And then we also have a guideline showing the order in which the shapes are gonna go on. My apologies pushed the wrong button there and then So that is our first visual language we have here. When it comes to the back plane, it stays pretty much the same, but there's no colour for the shapes Now. The actual colour that there is for the lines and arcs we can see here on the bottom will display your line zooming for you guys can see better. So we've got your line and it's got a blue and we've got an arc, which is white. So now if we look at this this display, it kind of starts making more sense. We can see all our solid lines is a one colour and everything that's got a form of a curve or arc to it becomes another colour so we can quickly identify. Okay, yeah, it's gonna be doing straight cuts. Then it's going to be doing going into an arc. Straight cut arc, straight cut. So yeah, so that's pretty much that. A visual language for the N. C. There's a few other things will happen once we simulate, but overall, this is a good one to understand. So I understand where the direction is going to the arrows from which shape to which shapes are going first. So the order of it, and then also what the colour coding means So straight lines or lines will be blue and curves or arcs will be white. But yeah, otherwise, that is it. On the visual language, we head here to softwaretraining.co.za Today you guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search on the top. Right? If you do not, however, find the training video looking forward, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video filling the meaning form. And then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
