    drilling many holes

    Hello all. trying to figure out the best way to set up drilling multiple holes in flat plates. 1/4" holes on 3/8" centers on a plate 24" x 18". would window points work if so how do I do that? I tried it but it is no selecting. thanks Mike

    x move basic

    Hello, I am working on drilling a shaft in rotation. the end is at x,y 0 and the shaft is drawn towards positive x. the first hole is 1" in and the second hole is 4" in. the first move shows x-1 but the second one is x4. shouldn't the second be -4 or is that decided by the first negative sign? the table should be moving -1 and -4 to give me holes at 1 and 4 on the shaft. see code below. thank you!

    A0 rotation

    Thanks for the help Jeff and great profile pic, GO BLUE
  10. If I don't want to use rotation in my program and in my post program it shows "A0" does that mean there is no rotation and can I leave that in there or should that be taken out of the program? thanks
