Normally if you have a safe Z set it will move the Z to that first then X and Y then Z back down.
If however you had a safe Z set wrong it may go down in Z first.

I'll check it... However, It would be wise to program this into mach, that if current Z is higher than SAFE z, then do not go to that level...
(E.g. in my case "before" level was +3, target level was +2, and it went down to something lower than +2)

TOmorrow I do some air-tests...

If the safe Z is set to machine coords and it is there already or higher it will not move but I dont know about other options, would think however they to would do that.

Are there any tool length offsets in the code? maybe they are getting applied wrongly?

No tool length comp. at all, that is sure.

I seem to recall Art saying the difference between Run From Here and Set Next Line. I always use Run From Here but I think really you are only meant to use that if stopping in the middle of code and the Set Next Line is really meant for if you are starting fresh.
 Can't remember the difference but might be worth you trying it.
