G47 - Engrave Sequential Serial Number

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

Word

Definition

Z~

The depth of cut of the engraving.

R~

The retract height between character segments in the numbers.

X~

If present, specifies the starting ‘X’ position, or the left side of the serial number. If omitted, the current X position is assumed.

Y~

If present, specifies the starting ‘Y’ position, or the bottom side of the serial number. If omitted, the current Y position is assumed.

P~

If present, is the ‘X’ extent (width) in current units (inches or millimeters) of the engraved number.

Q~

If present, is the ‘Y’ extent (height) in current units (inches or millimeters) of the engraved number.

D~

If present, is 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. For example: a serial number of 10 where D = 4 engraves as 0010; a serial number of 9056 where D = 3 engraves as 9056.

It is 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)
