Engrave Sequential Serial Number (G47)

ENGRAVE SEQUENTIAL SERIAL NUMBER (G47)

To engrave a serial number, either alone or added to the end of any text, program: Z~ R~ X~ Y~ P~ Q~ D~

  • Z~ is the depth of cut of the engraving
  • R~ is the retract height between character segments in the numbers
  • X~ is, if present, the starting X position, or the left side of the serial number – If omitted, the current X position is assumed.
  • Y~ is, if present, the starting Y position, or the bottom side of the serial number – If omitted, the current Y position is assumed.
  • P~ is, if present, the X extent (width) in current units (inches or millimeters) of the engraved number
  • Q~ is, if present, the Y extent (height) in current units (inches or millimeters) of the engraved number>/li>
  • D~ is, if present, the requested number of decimals of the engraved number – If the requested D value exceeds the number of decimals in the serial number, the serial number will show leading zeros. If the requested D value is less than the number of decimals in the serial number, only the digits of the serial number will show.

EXAMPLE – A serial number of 10, where D = 4, engraves as 0010. A serial number of 9056, where D = 3, engraves as 9056.

It’s an error if:

  • Cutter Compensation is on
  • The Z number is unspecified
  • The R number is unspecified
  • The Z number is greater than the R number
  • The P number is too small (determined by the font used)
  • The Q number is too small (determined by the font used)
