A new hole making operation called Sequential Drilling allows you to drill a sequence of coaxial holes with gaps in the part material (material is interrupted by empty space).
Created with NX CAM 9.0.3
Each drilling cycle consists of cutting and non-cutting moves. You may select cylindrical faces, edges, or hole features. The holes must be coaxial but do not need to have the same diameter.
To use this self-demo, save the attached part file locally and follow the instructions in the pdf document.
