basic "face milling" question

Hi,

 

I am new to NX-CAM, I created a milling operation (Face milling manual) and got that toolpath:

(start of the operation)

The kind of toolpath is OK, but I would like to start at the center of the hole and not outside my surface and cannot manage to do so.

 

How should I set the parameters of my operation to achieve that ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Use Floor Wall.

 

Follow Periphery

Go to non cutting moves >> Start / Drill pt tab >> Set a drill point in the center.

Also, in Cutting Parameters, you can set the Pattern Direction to Outward.
