Drilling feeds and rapid

Hi. I am new to this so go easy on me! I have created a drilling cycle, it rapids down to the top of the hole, it then drills at the feed I have put in, but then it will rapid out and rapid to the next hole at the same federate as the drilling cycle. any ideas on how to change it so that it will rapid to the next hole? thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your linking moves set to (skim or safe)?


I suspect it is skim.  Try changing it to safe and look at the output.  You may need a post-modification to fix the skim feeds.....just a guess though.

You may need to update your links to "incremental" depending on what you're trying to drill.


I've had this problem happen with threadmills and it's usually fairly stealthy.



Failing that it may be a call out within your canned cycles if you're seeing discrepancies between the software and the situation on the machine.
