    Sometimes I've noticed that the drill 'settings' has shrunk down to the bottom of the screen (left hand lower part of your screen) & needs you to go & drag that part of the view up with your mouse....

    Yes, I found it now....thanks. Spent hours today on it. Got some good results. I produced a design with 5 milling profiles. I produced the tool-paths, and then made the g-code. Opened Mach3 and imported. Only once out of around 20 times did all the profiles show in mach. I have no idea why or how I managed to get all of it to work in Mach once and not the other times. I'm sure I did not change anything. I have only "Profile 1" and "Profile 4" that now actually shows up in mach.
    Any ideas please ?

    Not sure (I don't use Mach3 as I prefer CNC-USB)....you could try going to 'system' (top of the screen), then clicking on post processors & then selecting Mach3? Else you could try asking the forum....

    http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/ ...I'm sure someone will know there (it's worth persevering with the teething troubles...IMHO it really is a great piece of software - & I've trialed a lot of different CAD/CAM apps!)

    Dolplhin PartMaster CAM and CAD modules both have a 'Pattern' feature which provides for
    the definition of a Rectangular or Bolt Hole pattern of Holes which can then be subsequently
    submitted to the Drill operation. Details can be found at Dolphin Hobby Cad Cam Software, PartMaster, CNC
