From Post-Pro options, you have the option to merge two opposite drillings into single thought drilling

For some PPs that change the drill bit code to “Lancia” and have to force as a standard drill bit if you don’t have suitable drill bits.

as examples

to “Normal” for Biesse

Through “Drillings code” to 10 for NC HOP

Through “Drillings code” to 0 for TPA


Hope that helps, 

Cheers, Alex

Is it possible to set up a fitting/rule that would automatically be set to a depth of “Through” if there was a corresponding hole the on the opposite face?

The attached screenshot is quite typical, these holes are for Blum drawers, Rafix 20 pins and door hinges, each hole is duplicated on both sides and are deep enough to go through.

This effectively doubles the CNC time and cost.

I’ve set up new Fittings for all these with a depth of Through and manually change them where required, can this be automated?
