How to change the depth of holes to drill (default is 3mm) ?

Thierry
Hi,
Hi, I'm a french user working with Freecad, Inkscape and now LibreCAD for my projects for my DIY machine (RepRap Prusa and CNC, using RAMPS 1.4 for electronic).
I'm trying to use LibreCAD 2.09 (under Ubuntu 16.04) to generate a DXF file (drawing exchange R14) to drill holes with my CNC running with bCNC software. I also use Inkscape with Gcodetools plugin but the drilling isn't satisfying...
I haven't found how to change de depth for the holes : it's 3 mm by default on the DFX file generated. I work on 2D (no isometric grid). I could change by hand but I think that a clever solution exists . I looked for a solution on the web but I found nothing.
Have you got a solution for my problem ? Thanks for your help, regards,

Thierry

I don't have any knowledge about CNC-ing but I can tell you that LibreCAD is a purely 2D program, so I can't imagine you can set the depth of anything. The isometric grid is just an aid to make an isometric drawing, but you can't define a three-dimensional body with it.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I have found a workaround with the program
dxf2gcode https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxf2gcode/.
