I would like to use an index drill as a drill and boring bar. I can set it up like a drill in my tool library, but does anyone know the proper way to call it out being that its has offsets for a drill and also offsets as a boring bar. HAAS has a video saying you can do this, but they don't really explain much beyond that. The devil is in the details. - The process would be call out the Drill as TOOL X with offset X and drill hole. - Then call out "drill" again, but it's actually a boring bar now. It would have the offset of a boring bar. The designation would still be drill but operating as a boring bar. This gets really confusing. I almost think I have to do the tool as a boring bar separately using the insert on the outside like the tip of a boring bar. Thanks, Steve
Hey everyone. My company just bought mastercam and I'm working on building our own tool library for both our mills and our lathes. We use indexable drills on both our mills and lathes when feasable. I was wondering how everyone was entering these in their tool libraries? Are you entering them as regular drills or as custom tools? Thanks in advance for your advice and opinions. Brandon
