This is one of those jargon things that trips up many new users. Move up to the "Attachments" section and the z-move will be possible.

If you select "peck" in the drilling task panel you will get G83. If you do not select special operations, peck or dwell, then the code should contain only G81.

When I compile in release mode those "_d" files are not created.

I sometimes make the mistake of going with the default, and the result does not work.

Re: Glitchy Toolpath v20

I saw the extra arcs when I first opened the file, but a recompute cleaned up everything. That is often the first thing to try when results don't look right.

If you hang around the Help forum for a while, as many of us forum rats do, it will be clear that it is VERY unreasonable to make that assumption. :lol:
