    Move in ARC

    I didn't try but it could work: If you have multiaxis you could try one drill toolpath per hole then multiaxis linking toolpath.

    Keeping toolpaths from needing regen

    You also can lock any toolpath too (select toolpaths and press L key to lock/unlock).

    The dumbest thing I have ever seen in a mastercam post

    Yes, in ribbon bar settings you can check/uncheck tabs you need. Just uncheck tool selection tabs.

    The dumbest thing I have ever seen in a mastercam post

    I guess this is because of 'smart' Tool tabs which have been implemented in Mastercam 2020. You can deactivate that useless thing...

    The dumbest thing I have ever seen in a mastercam post

    Something to notice (for those who still don't know...) is that Mastercam 2021 will bring a new drill toolpath to manage this kind of stuff.

    mill-turn plugin

    Mill-turn is installed with Mastercam installation but it's unlocked/shown in menu only if you got a MT licence and specific machine environnements (post/machine simulation).

    mill-turn plugin

    I think you can't get mill-turn with HLE release.

    Building holders in standalone tool manager

    Yes i read too fast and composite holders can only be stacked between them. With cylindrical extensions i usually tweak segment length to mimic its projection.

    Building holders in standalone tool manager

    Actually there is a way to adjust tool projection but it's a little tricky and undocumented (found that by mistake)

    I don't have MC4SW installed but here is MC2020 if it can help. (I couldn't download Harvey DXF file but you should get the idea) Tube Modification 2_X02.mcam

    Invalid entities in operations? Anyone else experience this.

    I'm experiencing this with 2020. It usually happens with solid chaining on my seat. I didn't find an other workaround than create a new toolpath...
