4th axis rotation

Greetings All,

This may be something very simple, but I can't seem to figure it out. I am using VCarve Pro 9 on a CNC Shark HD4 with a rotary axis. I have to do some machining on a piece of round stock. I've created the rounding toolpath, and toolpaths for the 4 remaining operations. One of them is drilling a series of holes on one side of the piece then machining the whole length on the other side. What I need to do is to rotate the piece 180 degrees, drill my holes, then rotate back to the starting point to finish the machining. Any ideas?

Hi All,

Don't bother posting. My question was a result of a major brain fart. I don't need to run any G code. All I need to do is jog the 4th axis 180 degrees using the pendant, prior to my last toolpath execution.
