I am experiencing big delays when I am trying to play the toolpath on the screen, for holemaking sequences. The delay can be up to two minutes, for a holemaking sequence with just 20 holes! I have to notice, that all the other sequences (surface, volume, profile, etc) are normally executed with no delays at all.
Am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

This is a known bug when the working directory is on a windows network, below is the information from PTC. Please file an enhancement request as I would like to see this fixed. This issue has been around for a long time, so it is clear it will not get fixed unless more complaints are filed. The work around is to turn off windows "opportunistic file locking" on the client PC.
After further investigation, I found that Software Performance Report (SPR) #1783145 has been already filed for this issue. PTC development team is currently investigate this issue further. This SPR has been filed with 4-MEDIUM severity.
The current severity and status of the SPR can be reviewed using the SPR Tracker on the PTC Website:
I have investigated your suggestions and the results are as follows:
1. Turning off the solid tool option has no effect
2. The complexity of the model doesn't affect. I tried with a very simple model and the behavior was the same.
3. As Bill Chapman wrote below, this is a known old problem that comes when the working directory is on the network. This is my case. My working directory is located on a NAS RAID drive. When I transfered the files locally, everything worked perfect. I will check to see what I can do with this "opportunistic file locking" ..............
