    Post can alphacam take into account the tool holder when calculating the toolpath?

    hello.
    i have been working with alphacam for 7 years now.
    i use it for stone carving mainly, recently i have been working on a big column capital and the tools doesn't reach as deep as they should to finish the roughing , so i added extensions but when doing the simulation it shows that the holder crashes into the stone.

    any ideas?

    thank you.

    Hi,

    hard to say without a video or attached file.
    Try upload your alphacam file.
