Hi, Nose

Download LC now I think it's fixed give it a try, Was going to post this eariler got sidetracked.

LazyCam is posting an incorrect G0 Z Move's It's set to Z 60.000 hear, It's a Bug.

You can Edit it out in your Tap File in Mach, Edit then in Editor, Edit, Find "G0 Z", change the value to your desired G0 Z value (such as Z0.0000 or a safe Hight of Z0.1000 would be .1 units above your Z0 top of cut surface).

Thanks, Chip
