Drilling operations

A drilling operation can be made from the machining menu

or from the tool bar

or by selecting the points, you want to drill, right-clicking and choosing "New Drill Operation"

You will then see the drilling dialog.

If there were some points selected before the drilling operation was created, then you will see their ID numbers in the "points" box.
But, you can reselect the points, at any time, by typing in the ID numbers separated by spaces, if you know them, or pick the points from the Graphics window, by clicking the "Pick" button.

Set all the parameters to those that you want.

Click "OK" to add the operation.

The drilling operation will appear in the Objects window.

When you do "Post Process", you will see the toolpath created for this operation.
