Solid modeling, machining thought...

Make all the tooling, the vice's, the macros, the tables, the custom cutter holders .....in surfaces. This way they are very lightweight.
I see lots of people with libraries of modeled stuff like that, why not make em super lightweight, out of polygon surfaces.

Because an assembly using simple solids is already light weight. You can view in a complete 5ax mill simulation with all the tools and holders with little overhead (using assembly).
