auto selecting drill point

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Novice user here. I am trying to set up a drilling operation in Mastercam X8 router. I have hundreds of holes to drill and don't want to have to select each point by hand. There is a way to have the program find similar entities for you isn't there? 

Thanks in advance.

Use Mask on arc to drill holes at the center of all the arcs whose diameter matches one that you select. Click Mask on arc, and select an arc from the graphics window. Mastercam reads its diameter and displays it in the dialog box. Mastercam you can select arcs whose diameter is within the specified tolerance to the first arc. Use the Selection Bar options (like window selection) to select the other arcs. Arcs can be either open or closed.
