How do I drill multiple Radial holes in one operation

I apologize for the basic nature of the question.  It's my fault for not spending enough time programming Y axis jobs.  But... How do I drill more than one radial hole around the OD of my part.  I'm sure I am missing a simple step but it is eluding me.

 

Thank you for any help.

Assuming all holes are identical in size and depth (and all on Y zero), I prefer to program one of them and then put it into a Pattern > Rotation.

@seth.madore   I don't see a pattern function in CAM.  How do I locate that?

 

My work around is to have a separate Drill function for each hole and change Tool Orientation for each.  Sort of messy.

 

Thank you for your help.

Right click on your Toolpath/Operation and and add a new Pattern. Not sure how it's called exactly because i run it in German. It's like a Folder Icon...

Right click on the toolpath and select "Add to New Pattern".

@seth.madore @weber_dominic .  That is slick.   I have never had the occasion to use that function before.

 

 

Thank you both for helping me.
