    1.0. Introduction

    The individual chapters of this manual explain the essential functions involved in operating and handling the system. The functions described here are also intended to give you a general idea of the systems capabilities (as well as the possibilities offered for implementing dedicated training courses). These not only include the creation of NC programs and simulating and checking their quality, but also many other realistic ways of teaching the trainees basic CNC machine tool functions using computer support. The examples used in the simulation are available in the programming keys of all CNC control systems supplied by our company. Trainees are guided through system operation step-by-step, enabling them to learn the underlying principles and the operation of the CNC simulator in a very short time. After some introductory explanations, we will first show you how to set up the simulator according to a work plan and how to create a setup sheet.

    1.1. How operating elements are represented in TopMill

    The operating elements and the meaning of their functions are shown by the simulator as 10 function buttons in a menu bar at the bottom of the screen corresponding to the function keys of a PC or control keyboard Main menu:

    To activate the desired function, either move the mouse pointer to the respective function button and click on

    the leftt-hand mouse button , or press the appropriate fun
