Machine holes with fewer operations, reduce tool changes and machine motion for feature based machining



You can now group through holes (STEP_HOLE) and blind holes (STEP_POCKET) together provided they have identical diameters, thread pitch, and number of steps. Depth attributes are ignored.




Created with NX CAM 9.0.2



Grouping through and blind holes to machine them in one operation.
