Deep Hole Drilling is a new operation subtype designed to meet the special requirements of drilling deep holes such as engaging into pilot holes at a specified feed rate.
Created with NX CAM 10.0.2
Additional Cycle Parameters allow you to control spindle behavior when engaging into the pilot hole and retracting from the deep hole as well as to control coolant when engaging, cutting, and retracting.
