when cutting and drilling why is my machine cutting all over the place I mean it will drill a hole in one place then travel to the other end of the work piece and then return to the original point and carry on drilling and then move over to the other end is there a reason for doing this.

optimisation, the order the holes were drawn in

Yea i think* that is true for anything done with ArtCam, i could be wrong though as it has been awhile since then.
