I need to produce a flat bottom bore on a lathe part. What is the most efficient way to program a boring bar to clean up the bottom of the hole before taking cuts the full length of the drilled hole without cutting air? When I worked in a shop that had all of the programming done in Gibbs, the programmer always bragged about his "stock remaining" option. Anything similar in BobCAD? I am running v20.4.

(THIS AREA IS THE PROGRAMMED PROFILE OF THE BORE START N101 AND END N102)
BCC should be able to do this but I have never tried because with Lathes I use the Canned Cycles G70-G76, G90, G92, and G94.
