    HELP NEEDED Converting G Codes To MCodes

    Hi All

    Can anyone help me?
    My Cam program will only output G Code but my control (Heidenhain 155) will only accept M Code.#
    Is there a way around this i.e. an conversion program.

    many thanks

    Let me try to explain g-code and m-codes....ok 1st m-codes are for turning on a function like a coolant pump or turning I off or turning on a spindle or there are m codes that turn them both on at the same time ......
    Now g-code ...g code tells the machine where to go to start cutting go - rapid , or g1 feed or even turning on a canned drilling cycle like g83, or g81 this is for fanuc controls for yours this is a sample program I found on the site
