I have been using CAM/BAM and Mach3 to do some basic toolpaths with no problem. I recently attempted to do some surfacing toolpaths with MasterCAM and at the end of the operation the tool went down in -z axis maybe 3 inches into our table and jogged in a negative-y and positive-x directions before I could hit the e-stop. I will attach the g-code .nc file, and I appreciate if you can help figure out what I am doing wrong...
I believe it is a post processor error . I just posted g-code as generic and ran the program ... everything ran fine until the end

The code looks fine, if you remove the G91 G28 Z0 & G28 X0 Y0 A0 lines that will stop it going to machine reference at the end but there is nothing in the code to make it dive into the table.


G-Code is on the cutting edge
