Mastercam — Peck Drill Toolpath Verify Problem

If you use a drill toolpath on Mastercam and try to use the peck option, the program uses a subroutine/subprogram for the pecking operation and will NOT show up in verify.

Your verify and backplot will show one swift drilling movement all the way to the specified depth, regardless of your peck settings. It turns out the g-code generated is only a line and has the pecking written in as one of the arguments, so if you’ve made it a habit to verify everything and you’ve stopped dead in your tracks with the drill toolpath, just forget verify and run it on your machine — the pecking will be there.
