False collision when rotating star probe

I get a collision when I run my path lines while using a star probe in tight places. If I have the star probe down in the part and I want to switch from tip #2 to tip #4 (for example) the path lines show a collision. The head does not actually have to rotate at all but rather just switch from #2 to #4. When this switch is made pc-dmis acts like the probe has to move and that is where the collision is happening but on the actual machine there is no collision at all, the switch is made without any movements. I would like to see this false collision to go away while proofing the path lines offline.
