I used The Fab Modules to create the tool path. Yes the holes and traces were 2 separete tool paths, mainly b/c the bit sizes I used were differente for holes and traces.

I am interested in how you got your files for the pcb layout to the tool path. Did you start with gerber files from you board layout? Are you using the standard drill files?really find anything. Any help would be appreciated.

Michael, I exported balck and white png of each layer, and used the fabmodules to cut the boards on a Modela MDX20.
