how to let the tool path like the image because when I machining it recognizes the hole


Re: area milling

Some operations have options to cross the gaps.

  • Cutting Parameters > Connections > Across Voids

In general, you need to remove the hole so that the CAM operation does not see it. There are many ways, depending on how your assembly is organized 

  • If you own the model supress the hole feature
  • Use Synchronous to cover the hole
  • In an assembly, Wave link the body, then use Synchronous modeleing to cover the hole
  • In an assembly, Wave link the body at a timestamp before the hole

I'm sure there are more ...
