Applied Parameters: CommandMode=NC

Summary

This command is used to redraw the information on the current drill layer, at a user-defined speed, so that you can see the order in which the drilling machine will proceed to drill your design.

Access

This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Tables » Layers Order command from the main menus.

Use

First, ensure that you have the drill layer selected as the only visible layer in the main design workspace. After launching the command, the Animate Viewing dialog will appear. Use this dialog to define the redraw speed for the layer. Choose from a predefined range of speed values - the larger the value, the slower the redraw speed.

After clicking OK, the current drill layer will be redrawn using the selected speed. The drill points will be redrawn in the order in which they will be drilled by the actual drilling machine.
