Thread Milling Wrong Direction

Just noticed a little bug with the thread mill cycle. I've got some thread mills that are left hand so they can climb cut going down. With the clockwise checkbox unchecked, and a thread mill path set to climb, the toolpath should go down from the top of the hole. That isn't the case. Don't know where else to report this. Not the end of the world just very confusing to teach someone. Would be much better if this worked properly or instead of asking for climb/conventional ask for up/down.

I see what you're saying, I never considered that. But yeah, it is less than intuitive. Our bug report system is currently in maintenance, so I'll check to see if we have any tickets for that later today.
