CNC Milling | Scaling and Coordinate Rotation Example


If both scaling and coordinate system rotation are specified at the same time, scaling is performed first, followed by coordinate system rotation. In this case, scaling is effective to the rotation center as well. To specify both of them, specify scaling first and then coordinate system rotation. To cancel them, specify them in the reverse order.
