I beleive at one time ART was working on bringing in the drill files through LCAM. The code is very similar to GCODE drilling cycles. SHould not be too difficult. Sit down with a list of the commands from the drill file and alist of g/m codes and compare the too. YOu may be able to convert it yourself. (;-) TP
