Multiple Wizards-How?
« on: January 22, 2017, 12:55:37 PM »
Hi everyone i'm fairly new to mach3 mill, the wizards are pretty cool but how do you machine for example a circular pocket and drill a bolthole pattern round it or a pocket inside a pocket in one go. Any one help me out here ?

My solution is to  create a separate Gcode program for each different operation then run them consecutively after changing tools etc. (take care to use the same datum [X0,Y0] for each separate program).
