Drill cycle question


I need a G80 output to cancel my drill cycle. Although under
Prep/G-Codes I have cycle/off defined as G80, my .tap file always has a G8
in it. Also I can't figure out how to get Gpost to out put a "R" for my
retract plane. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Glenn,

Open the Option File Generator, go to the File Format -> MCD File screen.
Click on the G and set it to have training zeros.

If you are refering to the R that should come out on the G81 block. On
the same screen as above make sure there is an R defined for the Cycle
RAPID Stop description.
