DRILL RETRACTION

HI ALL,

 

I am trying to use SIMPLE DRILL operation.  Secified the hole i want to drill using "generic point."

I have specified my tool axis using "two points."  for cycle type i am using peck drill, with minimum clearance of 200mm. When I generate the toolpath. it generates fine. WHen I verify the toolpath it does what i want it to do. When I go to simulate the toolpath, drills to the bottom of the hole fine but then it is not retracting on the vector it went it. It retracts Z0 (straight up). Anyone have a clue why it generates fine and verifies fine but does not simulate properly?  Anyhelp would be great!

Re: DRILL RETRACTION

The first thing I would recommend is using the hole_making operations instead of drill, since the old point-to-point operations are being retired.

If you want to stick with this operation, then what is your clearance plane? What machine are you simulating with?
