@anuragk91299, nYou can tilt the tool insert to create a rake angle. You don't need the tool holder in the simulation.nThe number of elements is not the most important factor in reducing elapsed time of the simulation. The most important factor is the minimum Element Characteristic Length. Read some of these discussions to learn more.nArrayHex elements are not always the best elements. There is a defect that can enter the simulation results called 'hourglass mode'. The image below shows what the mesh looks like before the simulation starts.nIn the image below, the hourglass defect has gotten very bad in the hex mesh. nnI changed the mesh on the tool to Tetrahedrons that don't suffer from hourglass mode and the simulation will perform better. The image below shows what the mesh looks like before the simulation starts.nIn the image below, the simulation has run for a short time but the tool it in good shape.n
