so did you remove the extra z movement manually or did you get that tap file straight from post code on lazy cam. If you got it to post from lazy cam like that what did you change.

Hi, David

It's a modified .pst for LCam, It is just below the picture 2 posts back, Put it into c:\Mach3 folder , Then in LCam click on Post Code button, Then click on Set Post Processor Button, Find the "Mill Example 08 25 08 new A.pst" and select it.

Now it will be used for your post's in LCam and it will generate the G-code I posted.

sorry to be such a bother Chip but now that I am looking at it isn't a circle one line of code. Under my entities it is showing as two entities and type is showing an arc.

I think I found what it was. I just needed to set the lead ins to zero. That seems to have fixed it.
