What problems exactly are you having. Do you have the correct post processor selected?

First check that Z=0 is at the top of the work. If it isn't, manually jog the torch down so that it just touches the work then click on the 'zeor z' button in Mach.

If this is correct check your rapid clearance height in SheetCam options->hob options->material.
