Rapid movement?

Hi, I am still not getting any nearer to solving my problem. I always set the rapid move to G00 Z4.000 to give a rapid clearance of 4mm but when i read the code it only reads Z0.5000 which then marks the surface of the work.

Hi, I have recently returned to using Sheet Cam after a year or so break but I am now having problems. After using the post processor when I run the code on the 3040 cnc machine the Z axis will not rise and it damages the work instead of a rapid move. How can I get SheetCam to perform a rapid move c...
