I'm new here and to machining, but have been CAD/CAMing in solidworks/camworks for a few months and have some ?s.
I'd like to drill a 2mm hole through 0.75" quartz on my HAAS VM2, and man, using G83 is likely to take upwards of a week with the required feeds at F0.06 IPM (10,000RPM).
The lengthy time comes from the fact that after the rapid retract, my machine feeds back to the hole bottom at the stated feed rate. Is there a way to RAPID back to the bottom of the hole, say 0.020" above the floor? That would cut time down by 95%.
