You should only see C rotations after the 1st hole if they are on the same axis.

 

Can you show your posted code?

Assuming you have a 5 axis machine, you can use the "lock axis" UDE

I've never done it, but there have been posts in the past on this topic.

hi,

your tool path is 5 axis, straigth lines, but move is in 5 axis.

Consider if your machine have 5axis tranformations.

You can omit moves between holes somehow as well, but you can have problem in some other cases where is C rotating not enough.

It is pretty complex.
