Defining holes by coordinates


The window that opens is designed for parameter assignment of new or existing holes. To edit the parameters of an existing hole, double click the required hole in the list.

To create a hole the user should define the values of its parameters (position, diameter, depth) and press the <Ok> button. The created hole will be automatically added to the list.

When hole's parameters are being altered, the changes are displayed in the graphic window.

<Drill tip compensation> - choose the way the hole depth is specified:

  • <Off> – last tool path point matches the drill tooling point;
  • <Drill tip> – last tool path point matches the drill tip point;
  • <Length> – same as <Off> but the drill travels the specified value down from the drill tooling point;
  • <Auto> – hole depth is defined by the system based on whether the hole is blind or through.
