    i guess then i should probably ether get some smaller cutter or go for the drill method. I have been looking at videos on cam bam and how to do the drilling and it mentions something about adding points list centers, im guessing this is just telling the drill were to go rather than to find the center of the hole one its own? Im assuming buy dreating the drill tool path and g code i then run this file with a 3mm drill bit instead after the profile code that does the rest of the cutting with the same start point?
    I have found the peck setting but there is also a drilling method option with canned, spiral and custom im assuming i want canned as i wouldn't want spiral but cant find out what that means?
