Issues with selecting pockets to manufacture

In our workflow we route files as seen in the screenshot. When making the pocket operation we tried two ways, but both have issues:

#1. Select all pockets one-by-one. But after selecting a few surfaces with a hole in it fusion becomes unworkably slow.
#2. Selecting a pocket and then using the "Select same plane faces" option. After some calculating this select all pockets automaticly. But when we simulate this routing operation we see it creates a routing path which does not follow a logic order (see screenshot).


Our workarround at the moment is way #1 with creating a new operation when it becomes to slow to select additional pockets.


Is there a more effecient way for our workflow?

Wow, that gets sluggish rather quickly. Normally I'd expect to be able to take about twice the amount of contours before performance starts to degrade...

For features/components that are identical in every aspect, it's really hard to beat the efficiency of a good 'ol Pattern > Duplication. Program up one set of features on a single piece and then put it into a Pattern:
