Carbide Create Question

OK I want to drill some 1/4" holes and I have a 1/4" end mill bit, but when I make a tool path it doesn't show up on simulation and it won't drill a hole. So how does one drill holes with this cnc?

Re: Carbide create and motion question from newbe

OK didn't like Makercam at all had so much trouble with it but I do like Inkscape and it works with Carbide create too. But all is good now, I found out a way to fool Carbide motion Into thinking it is connected to the cnc when it is not, so don't have to take the laptop out to the machine.
