Problem is they are not accurately sized, require jig grinding/TWEDM or maybe lapping for finish. Otherwise drill'em finished with what we call a Do-Drill. Solid carbide spade type. They can be shop made on a Deckel cutter grinder or bought. I think SGS makes them, sold as reamer-drills?

Greetings!
Innovative thinking and investing in advanced technologies will lead many businesses on the right track for a successful 2010. With unexpected brightness amid a gray economy, now is the time to create your path to recovery.
Continually increasing capital investment in cutting-edge technologies is a significant aspect of Precision Aerospace's business strategy. By focusing on advanced technologies such as 5-Axis and EDM, the company is able to consistently reduce cycle times and improve quality, laying a solid foundation for financial growth.
Sometimes, a seemingly simple switch in the materials used can have a dramatic impact on your bottom line. Moving to aluminum in place of steel, for example, is saving some shops 5 - 10% of their costs. This is the opportunity to evaluate what changes your company can make in the coming year to create similar savings for your business.
Planning ahead for the New Year can be a challenging task, especially following the recent economic volatility. Fortunately, economists at the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl., have identified several factors that may help inject some clarity in predicting the business climate over the coming months.
Enjoy the issue and Happy Holidays!

Greetings!
Being a leader in today's manufacturing industry requires you to be a technology pioneer. Even states are taking strides to become technology leaders with innovative improvements, such as Ohio in the case of green energy.
Pioneering shops are now turning to advanced technologies like micro milling to meet the new demands of producing micro-sized products. However, there are many aspects to consider before committing to this growing market. Less forgiving than traditional milling, each machine and its components must be suitable to the unique requirements of the task at hand. And, your choice of the size of the machine you are purchasing can have a dramatic affect on the level of production you will be able to achieve. Download this free white paper to learn more ways to capitalize on the micro milling opportunity.
The cyclical path of global outsourcing is making its way back to the US. Following unsatisfactory experiences and mounting frustration in recent years, U.S. mold makers are increasingly seeing projects coming back from offshore and making a strong case for the value advantage of building molds locally.
Die makers and fabricators also reported positive news at the recent 2009 FABTECH Intl. & AWS Welding Show. Though some had different approaches to surviving the down economy, they all are focusing on one thing now - preparing for the recovery.
Enjoy the issue,

February, 2010     Cimatron Tooling Tips!     Greetings!
Welcome to Cimatron Tooling Tips! This is a monthly email with information that will help you optimize your Cimatron products.
    CimatronE Version 9 Service Pack 2 Available          e9 Cimatron Technologies has recently finished testing a new patch for Version 9. Service Pack 2 is complete and will be shipping on CD to all customers at the end of the month. Sp2 contains numerous new fixes. For some specific issues the Cimatron support desk can direct you in how to download the components that make up Sp2 for immediate use.     Tips & Tricks by the Cimatron Support Staff
Tip #1 Extra notations have been added in Version 9 to make creating and tracking parametric relations much easier. When in Quick Edit mode, the notations below are displayed at the end of a dimension. You can see them when creating a relation or trying to understand relations created by another user.
* (f) - This symbol means that the dimension is driven by a relation (formula). Since the dimension is driven by other entities, there would be no need to modify it directly. * (L) - This symbol means that the parameter is a leading dimension. These are key dimensions that either drive other relations or affect changes in the geometry. Marking which dimensions are the leading ones is done in the pop- up window while in Quick Edit mode. Cimatron also organizes all leading dimensions in a part or assembly into a single table under the Edit menu, where they can be easily viewed and modified.
Tip #2 Pre-defined catalog parts are a great time saver for design. But when catalog tables get very large, finding a specific part can be a challenge. To help out, Cimatron provides several sorting options. Clicking on the top of each column will sort the parts by the columns dimension. You can also use the input boxes at the bottom of each column to filter the parts by the specified size. The lookup results will even include table cells containing your filter criteria inside list values. If the exact size is not found, it will pick the closest row available, and create a non-standard component based on your requested size.
Tip #3 When drafting, either a sheet or a view can be active. It is important to understand the differences between the two. Working with the view active is recommended when creating a geometry that will be either trimmed or constrained to other view entities. It is also the preferred mode for drafting symbols that will move with the view. Switching between sheet and view modes can take time, so Cimatron will often make a smart assumption for you. For example, a Dimension will belong in the view where it was built, even if the sheet was active. Likewise, notes and balloons will be assigned automatically to a view, as long as they have a leader that touches an edge in the view. Without any leader, notes and balloons will remain in the current active mode, which would often be the sheet. You may also move a note or balloon from the sheet into a view by attaching the leader to an edge, which will trigger the assignment to the view. The view assignment will be retained even if you remove the leader later on.
Tip #4 New in Cimatron E9.0 are tools for creating Product Manufacturing Information (PMI). These PMI functions are used in a 3D environment to capture manufacturing information that conforms to the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Y14.41- 2003 standard. They are 3D annotations, such as text and dimensions of many types. Other symbols for tolerances and surface finishes are planned for future releases. PMI annotations can be created in any active part or assembly and are also viewable when the models are included in drafting documents.

Topic: Prepping parts for use in NC.
Note - if you have already registered, there is no need to re- register. Register now.     Tips & Tricks by the Cimatron Support Staff
Tip #1 New in Cimatron E9.0 are tools for creating Product Manufacturing Information (PMI). These PMI functions are used in a 3D environment to capture manufacturing information that conforms to the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Y14.41- 2003 standard. They are 3D annotations, such as text and dimensions of many types. Other symbols for tolerances and surface finishes are planned for future releases. PMI annotations can be created in any active part or assembly and are also viewable when the models are included in drafting documents.
Tip #2 Prior to version 9.0, defining lines to a reference face required manual selection of the relevant reverence face for each line. This was not only time consuming; it also didn't support automatic propagation of changes to line location and reference faces. Cimatron E 9.0 supports definition of multiple lines to a group of faces, which simplifies the creation process and supports the propagation of geometric changes to line location and reference faces.
Tip #3 Almost any sketch will require a connection to existing geometries in the file. As only the coordinate system point is given by default, others must be added using Add Reference. Add Reference will pick part edges, many points, and even datum entities like planes and coordinate systems. All of these get projected into the current sketch plane. An extra click in the filter tool will add the Faces selection option. Using Add Reference on an entire face will bring all its internal and external loops into the sketch at once, which is a faster way to get many references rather than picking them one at a time.
The face selection filter also works with the Add Geometry tool. Add Geometry by the entire face is the best option for creating a sketch that duplicates the edges of an existing shape.
Tip #4 The data and knowledge from a Cimatron EDM project can be output in many different ways. Often, electrode dimensions are displayed on drawings or sent directly to the EDM machine. Another way of providing useful information is the Electrode Report. Creating the Electrode Report is done with a right mouse click in the electrode tree. From the report screen you have control over four areas that will be output as an Excel document for easy printing.
The top area is a section for the job number and general comments. The second area is for describing the work piece to be burnt. The third area provides information about the electrodes. The last area shows the location and burn dimensions for each electrode. This is a lot of information for one page, sometimes even too much information. There are ways to customize the Electrode Report to include just the information you need.
In each area, you can right click the mouse and select the columns shown in the report. When you close and save the report, it will become the default style for future reports you create. Another option accessible with a right mouse click is to output information for just a single electrode or electrode location, which will produce a significantly shorter report.

Tip #1 The Cut Manager presents new options for Add operations, providing complete control over how the design is affected by adding the new component. Cut Manager lists the components that are in contact with the added component. The checkbox next to each component indicate whether it is going to be cut by the new part cutting object (according to the existing cutting rule) and are checked accordingly. The user may manually change the cut analysis results: checking the box will force a cut into a part that may otherwise/originally be an open solid, and un-checking the box will prevent needless cuts in plates that may already be cleared.
Tip #2 Adding components to an assembly by placing them on a face creates a sketch in Cimatron E9. The sketch is an assembly-level feature, holding the dimensions or snap points where components are placed. On occasion, there may be a need to place additional components in the assembly using the same exact X and Y coordinates as a previously added component. In such cases, don't bother hunting for the sketch in the assembly tree. Instead, just right-click the mouse, and select Pick Reference Component. Then select any one of the previously added parts, and the new component will be placed in the same location. What's more, components added using this method can still be individually adjusted. Each snap point has a break option to allow moving it away from the point.
Tip #3 Cimatron has long had the Quick Split function to help divide up plastic parts into sides to be molded. Quick Split organizes the faces from a part into groups. It also organizes the shutoff surfaces built out from the parting lines. It's good to understand the differences between these Part and Parting surfaces. Any part surface will be exported into a single mold component. Parting are steel shutoff surfaces, and therefore must be identical in the two mold components. That's the reason they are illustrated as two faces during the Quick Split animation, and why you must pick two groups when assigning the parting attribute. Part faces and parting faces each have their own tool to distribute them into the mold cavities. Part faces use Export to Part. It can simultaneously create multiple new parts in assembly. Parting faces use Export Parting Faces. This function incorporates a cut of the work piece along with the transfer of shape.
Tip #4 Cimatron's E9.0 non-uniform scaling can now scale by bounding box. This eliminates the need for you to calculate the scaling ratios. The system creates a bounding box around the part and displays the dimensions of the original box. To the left is the area where you enter the new XYZ lengths that you want the part scaled to.
