Hole Pocketing can be used to cut large holes as a milling operation instead of drilling. The hole radius and depth can be specified, along with the number of levels. The Engage can be specified as a helix with the height and angle or pitch. For machines capable of helix cycles, the output can be a helix cycle.  For others, it can be a series of linear moves.
