● Milling: G17 (XY)
The plane is transferred to the cycles as new parameter. The plane is output in the cycle, i.e.
the cycle runs in the entered plane. It is also possible to leave the plane fields empty and
thus create a plane-independent program.
The entered plane only applies for this cycle (not modal)! At the end of the cycle, the plane
from the main program applies again. In this way, a new cycle can be inserted in a program
without having to change the plane for the remaining program.
