Isolation and drilling

What's the recommended procedure for accomplishing isolation routing followed by drilling? Do you export separate gcode files, and load them up in succession into bcnc (in my case)? Or is there a better way that generates one gcode with a bit change?

Hi, FlatCAM won't generate a common file with both isolation routing and drilling, so you will need to load separate files into your CNC machine. You can always merge them in some way using TCL (in the FlatCAM shell) post processing if that is what you really want. JP
