Is there a model aware toolpath that checks for collisions with holders?

By model aware im looking for something that sees my tool cant possibly reach a corner or feature because of the holder.

 

i have a fairly complicated large part to make next week. looks like it was a weldment at some point, it no longer is, as a result there are lots of tall features with radii at the bottom, lots of ballmilling to finish it up. hoping maybe i can start with shorter ballmills where i can and then switch to relieved ballmills for the taller areas?

Have you tried the Shaft and Holder option that's in most of the 3D toolpaths?

I've used that function with good results on a nasty titanium part I was machining. Just verify your tool stick outs and it should work.
