I did that but it doesnt change the length of the end of the tool holder and when I change the length of tool instead of sticking out more it just goes farther up inside the tool holder I'll show you the part I am referring to maybe you can figure it out also the toolpath I am referring to is #7.

It is an educational file so thats probably why but maybe a future update for mastercam should be lathe tool projection because editing different parameters for example increasing the C setting on the tool and decreasing it on the holder isn't working I know I could draw the tool and the holder but I just think it should be easier than that.

unfortunately I can't open the file you shared it's either a mcam 2023 or a home learning edition file. I'm still currently sticking to 2022 at work.
