Applied Parameters: CommandMode=NC


This command is used to change the tool associated with selected drill points on the current document.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Place » Drill » Modify Drill(s) command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will enter drill modification mode. Modification is made by performing the following sequence of actions:

  1. Position the cursor over a drill point that you wish to modify, and click.
  2. Continue adding drill points in this way to build a selection ready for modification.
Clicking away from an object allows you to drag a selection area, for including multiple objects in the selection. Selection is cumulative.
  1. With all required drill points selected, right-click - the Select Mill/Drill Tool dialog will appear. Use the dialog to select the new tool that you wish to associate to these selected drill points and click OK - the selected drill points will now use the new tool.
  2. Continue to select further drill points for modification, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.


  1. In order for this command to be available, make sure that you are in the NC Editor, rather than the CAM Editor. Editor selection is carried out from the View menu.
