The DP700 calculates positions for a series of equally spaced holes around the circumference of a circle. The message display prompts the user for various parameters it needs to do the calculations.
Once the DP700 completes the calculations, the axis displays show the distance to each hole. The operator works to Zero for each hole location. See example below.
