Any one know where to pick tool holders in surface tool paths? I have been using the Mastercam interface with Vericut to setup the HSK Tool Holders for me so I don't have to define them in Vericut. Works fine for all other toolpath types except Surfacing.

Nope! Not until they bring the legacy surfacing toolpaths up to the new style of toolpath trees will it be fixed.

Has this been fixed in X6?
The presupposes that it's broken, it is not.
It is however not available in that menu style as mentioned above, as such will not likely be available in the legacy surface path until such time that they are ported to the new style menus.
I was hoping they would be done by this release, alas, they are not.

John, Very well said. I thought I was going crazy or doing something wrong.
