you can add and simulate solid tool but generating paths is based on parametric nx tools.

So best way is to have solid body tool matching with the nx parametric tool.

 

please correct me if I am wrong.

Solid tools can only be used by a very limited set of operations. Parametric tools can be used by a much wider range of operations.

@MarkRiefposted a journal to create parametric tools from solid tools a while back, so you might be able to use that to create a user-defined tool.

The thread is called Sample vb program to create mill holder from curves or solid , sure it is for the holder, but similar is possible for user defined tools.
