Re: Drill Cycle_Cam option

Documentation explain this as you see on picture below.

But I prefer to use it differently - as an addition to an "option". So if machine cycle have some specific parameters, which are not supported by any OOTB options in drilling operation - I can use CAM to set some values.

Re: Drill Cycle_Cam option

The original purpose was to indicate the depth stop on a 2.5 axis mill - something from the 1970's.

But as @Marek_Pawlus said, if you have a 3 axis mill, you can use it for whatever you want.
