We have several machines with drill banks with horizontal drills, and one with a C-axis.  We recently upgraded to Enroute 5, and up until now I have hand coded any time I had to use these features on our machines.  Since version 5 supposedly supports some horizontal cutting, I wanted to try it.  But the tests I've tried to output just spit out a blank file with no moves.  Will I have to have our machine drivers remade to take advantage of the horizontal milling features? The machines in question are some Komo Mach 1s and a Northwood IH510.

Todd,
Enroute 5 has the ability to output horizontal drills,
but most drivers are not setup to handle them. If you
wanted to add that functionality to the drivers we can
do that and we would edit the current driver that you
are using. I would be aware though that there would most
likely be some kind of charge for adding that function
to the driver.

Best Regards,
Aaron

So just curious if I want to drill a horizontal hole in
a part. Don't I still need to have a jig to drill them
because if the Offset is 3/8" then the drill would
"bump" into the material?

I just sent you some information via email about aggregate heads. Hopefully this helps answer some questions.

Do any of the machine drivers that would have been included with Enroute 5 support horizontal drilling?
