    Hello friends. I designed the 4th axis that can rotate 360 ??degrees.
    You can see it in the video. Currently I can run it manually. No mechanical problems.
    I want to program side hole jobs in cad / cam software.
    I tried on my alpha, but I don't have a post.
    I couldn't get g code due to post incompatibility I know very little about software and post.
    I want to drill holes on 4 sides of a panel.
    I plan to do this by rotating 90 - 180 - 270 - 360 degrees.

    Please help me with this.

    Can you skip the CAD/CAM and program directly?
    I routinely drill 4 holes in a part at 90 degree intervals using the A axis, but I program all that by hand.

    Cheers
