Hey guys,

so i've been thrown into using the cnc where i work and i need some help.

we're supposed to cut some rectangular panels for a client but these panels are to have a 1/4" hole every 1" o/c. and i've set up a program to drill the holes but it takes 2 hours for the program to run since i only know how to use one bit at a time in the drill block. now i'm pretty sure theres a way to use all five or at least a combo of 2 at a time. i'm using Master Cam X to do my programing. if theres anyone that can help me make the program more efficient, it would really help me.

thanks
ksl
