Hi, 

Sorry for delay,

If you want to use a specific drill, you can give false dimensions into your CNC like 8.1mm for 8mm, and when you want to use that specific drill, in fitting links give this diameter.

Cheers, Alexandre

  

Hi!

this I know, but if there is a new feature then it should work..

  

I have the same experience

I know but,

not all Post-Pros have the same capabilities.

Some are still being adjusted, and I don't know all the details.

Hi ,

Now I think you can set specific options in TPA pp drilling with "lancia" or "Normal" ,

Hope that's helpful, 

Cheers, Alexandre 

  

Lancia feature existed before as well and is useful.

now I can mill specific fittings or pockets with predefined tools. Which is awesome!!

but I can also name boring tools. For example I want to use special bore for dowel but regular one for other 8mm holes. The feature is there, it just does not work.

milling tool codes work fine and I am already using them

Hi!

New update seems awesome regarding the PP features.

Though the drill codes i assign to fittings to not pass on to the PP file. Using biesse CIX format.
