Retract Speed
« on: June 13, 2022, 23:12:58 pm »
I've set up a project that has about 120 holes to drill. Would love to see a way to increase the speed at which the bit retracts quickly from drilling the hole in order to shave some time off the operation.

HI John
If you have to do the holes at least on a semi regular basis
then use the drilling plugin, it is rapid aware, and will use rapids
when and where appropriate and safe to do so.
post #12 has the latest ver. which does rigid tapping as well.
