Hi Mike,

not sure what you are asking, Mach only runs g-code, the order of which is determined by the g-code creating program or person.  Lazycam on the other hand imports DXF files and produces g-code for Mach to run.

I never use Lazycam, others here are better qualified to advise you on its use.

Mike,
    The order in which the layers are machined is entirely determined by the order in which you create the processes in SheetCAM.  Mach3 does not do any re-ordering, it smiply does what the G-code tells it to do.
