Re: Inserting a hole

Forgive me but I still don't get it. I need the above mentioned holes 1 3/4" from center and 4.9mm from the top edge on each side.
Isn't there a way that I can measure from the center and down from the outside?

Post Processor

I have downloaded the "Avid CNC posts for Vectric v1.0" to the PostP folder and copied it into my My_PostP but when I'm in Vectric, save tool paths it isn't in the dropdown list of Post Processors.
What am I doing wrong?
