The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: CommandMode=NC


This command is used to manually define the order in which the NC Drill machine will drill the holes listed in the drill file.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the View » Sort/Optimize Options » User Select command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the cursor will change to a small square and you will be prompted to select objects in order to define the sort order. Simply position the cursor over a drill point and click to add it to the selection. Continue adding drill points to the selection, in the order that you wish them to be drilled. When all drill holes have been included as required, right-click to effect the ordering.


  1. The order in which the NC Drill machine will actually drill the holes, can be previewed using the Preview Drill/Rout command.
  2. Drill points defined in the manual ordering will be drilled first, followed by any points that were not included in the manual selection, drilled in the order in which they were originally created.
