Makercam drilling tool path order?

Post by ericpayne91 » Sat Nov 03, 2018 8:52 pm

Very new to everything shapeoko and makercam. I have a svg file created from sketchup with a large number of holes to be drilled. I selected all the holes using a selection box and cut the part but it seems to have randomly created a toolpath not very effectively (one hole then travel to another at the other side etc)

Is there anyway to select how it makercam creates the automatic toolpath for multiple drilling holes?
I have about 150 holes so don’t really want to manual select them one by one.

Many thanks

Ps please keep your reply’s simple haha
