Click to view contentOk here is another question. I have a 3/4 inch hole I need my machine to mill out instead of drilling. My question is this. If I have an 1/4" end mill can I have the software mill just the outside perimeter and let a remainder material fall? or does it have to mill all the material out of the hole? the material is a 1 3/4" x 3" .120 thickness tube… (Show more)
