Block Start Number
This is the number that you want the block resequencing to
start. Most users would start at 10. But you can have anything
This is how much you want each block number to increment by.
Most users would use 10, so that blocks go 10, 20, 30, 40
Block Number Use N
If you check this, then blocks would be like N10, N20, N30
etc. Nearly all but Heidenhain CNC machines use this option.
If you do not check it then block numbers go 10, 20, 30 etc.
You have 3 separate options for how you want blank lines to
be treated Resequence blank lines Ignore blank lines and so
they are not resequenced Delete blank lines - they are not
really needed anyway.
Ignore Blocks Starting With
Not all of your file needs to be sequenced. For example comments
don't need it, neither do the % headers in a Fanuc program.
There are lots of situations like this. To ignore them just
type in the characters one after another. So (/:O% will not
sequence any block that STARTS WITH ( and / and : and O and
Restart Blocks Starting With
This allows you to also resequence subprograms, each subprogram
will start sequencing again.
Modern CNC machines that use block numbers have N10,
N20, N30 etc. as its format. However some older CNC machines
have to have blocks in a constant format, with leading zeros.
So for example, selecting 4 would make blocks like N0010,
N0020....N0100....N1000 etc. If you do not need this kind
of formatting just select zero.
