Is it possible to designate point for the CNC to start
it's operations from after performing a tool change? It
always seems to start from the bottom left corner, which
doesn't always make sense. Sometimes the only way I can
ensure that the operations are sequenced the way I want
is to manually order them. This is pretty tedious
especially when the shortest toolpath option orders them
perfectly except it starts from the wrong point.

Any tips?

Thanks

Richard

Group your first tool as one and then start from the right and group your second tool in small manageable sections.
Now do a manual order by group. I attached a screen shot. I hope this helps. Good luck.
