(Note 1) When the restart switch is ON, move the axis in the same direction as the restart direction. If
moved in the reverse direction, the operation error "M01 R-pnt direction illegal" occurs. If the tool
needs to be retracted once, such as if the tool is interfering with the workpiece, turn the restart
switch OFF and retract the axis manually.

The tool compensation data can be set and displayed.

The number of tool compensation sets to be set or shown differs according to the option.
Refer to section "3.2 Tool Compensation Amount" for details.
[Tool compensation type I (M system)]
Parameter "#1037 cmdtyp" = 1
The combined amount of the shape compensation and wear compensation are set as the compensation
data, with no distinction between shape compensation memory and wear compensation memory. (The
tool compensation data is the shape compensation amount + wear compensation amount.)
The compensation data is used commonly for the tool length compensation, tool position offset, tool
radius compensation, and three-dimensional tool radius compensation.
[Tool compensation type II (M system)]
Parameter "#1037 cmdtyp" = 2
The shape compensation amount and wear compensation amount are set separately. The shape
compensation amount is furthermore divided into length and radius dimensions.
Of the compensation data, the length dimension data is used for the tool length compensation and tool
position offset, and the radius dimension data is used for the tool radius compensation and
three-dimensional tool radius compensation.

(1) Variable No.
This is the common variable No. There are address #100 and address #500
variables.
The #100 variables appear at the head when the power is turned ON.
If "#1052 MemVal" is set to "1" (Designate No. of common variable for common part
system), "*" is attached to the part system common variable. (Note that if there is only
one part system, "*" will not appear.)
(2) Variable value
The setting range is -999,999,999 to 999,999,999 or blank.
An exponential is displayed when a 7 digits are set in the integer section and 5 digits
or more as set in the decimal section.
(Example) 1234567 → 1.2346E+006, 0.00001 → 1.0000E-005
The minimum setting unit that can be set is 1.0000E-099 (99 digits below decimal
point).
(Note) When the setting is "blank", the setting will be handled as "0" in the
calculations. However, when the conditional expressions EQ or NE are used,
the blank will not be handled as "0".
(3) Variable name
A variable name can be assigned for #500 to #519.
Up to seven alphanumeric characters, starting with an alphabet character, can be set
for the variable name.

Program Editing
This is used to edit (add, erase, change) the machining programs in the NC memory, HD, memory card (front
IC card), DS(compact flash) or FLD, and to create new programs.
This function is used for three types of program: machining program, MDI program and fixed cycle program.
Press the main menu Edit key to display the program found when performing an operation search (MDI
program in MDI mode).
The contents of the left area depends on the display type:

:Enables to edit a program confirming the program check screen.
:Enables to edit two programs using left and right editing areas.
:Enables to edit a program referring to the G code guidance.
There are two types of editing available: regular editing and mass-editing.
With mass-editing, up to a 2GB-sized file can be edit.
The specification and restrictions are different from those with the regular editing.
Mass-editing is available only with FCU7-DA4xx/DA3xx.
Mass-editing is applied when the following conditions are satisfied.
• When the storage destination for the program to be opened is either HD, FLD, or memory card.
• When a file size is 1.0MB or larger. (When the parameter "#8910 Edit Undo" is set to "0", 2.0MB or

Program Check (3D)
Program check (3D) is a function that draws the workpiece shape and tool movement in the cutting process
of the machining program as a solid image without executing automatic operation. The machining program
can be checked with graphic data drawn at a high speed.
This function requires workpiece and tool shape settings.
Using All display menu, normal display and full-screen display modes can be switched.
(Note 1) The program check (3D) function is an additional specification. The graphic check and 3D solid
graphic check option is required.
(Note 2) When changing the screen to the edit screen, display depends on the previous checking type

G Code Guidance
G code guidance is a function that shows the command format details or the outline of its operation for the G
code being edited while creating or editing the machining program. With this function, the G code format can
be confirmed immediately. G code guidance is also displayed in the same manner even when MDI program
is displayed.
G code guidance function is valid for the M system.
<G code guidance>
The contents displayed on the G code guidance area depends on the cursor position on the Edit screen, and
is refreshed when moving the cursor.
The G code that meets following conditions are displayed in this area.
• G code that exists between the head of block and cursor position including the cursor position.
• G code that exists immediately before the cursor if multiple G codes meet the above condition.
