Order of operations in DXF

Postby Terry Satdtmiller » Mon, Feb 02 2009, 3:30PM

I would like to know if there is a way to define the order or operations of different operations within the DXF

I use the order of operations within the same layers (Chain Compout1 , Chain Compout2 ...) but I would like to know if there is a way to
force the order using differnt layers. I would like to do a Pocket and then a centerline or chaincomp. The only way I can do it now is to modify the
CNC file.

You can order different operations using the same convention you use for chain layers.

I.e. Chain compout1... pocket2... centerline3... chain compout4...

The only thing that overrides this is if you have "do drills first" set in CN, and that only effects drill operations.
