I have downloaded and installed the mastercam postprocessor provided from Artsoft. Made a simple 100 x100mm contour with one pass -10mm deep cut and after I input the g code generated to Mach3 it didn't work properly. Does the postprocessor provided only works with older version of Mastercam? Here is the g-code generated...

You did not indicate what was incorrect about the G-code produced.
Nice... I like the rapid plug to Z-15 on N160 :-/
I use mach 3 on my home cnc and use a post I found elsewhere because it calls tool heights and tool offsets.
I posted it here before when trying to change the tool change height from "Z1" to "Z3"
Your issue may be in programing in. mastercam since there are multiple plunges and retracts. Did you select a chain (one click picked all 4 sides) or did
It looks like you selected 4 individual lines and its cutting them each separately... not sure a post processor could do that.
info on the post I use is here
Mach3 post for Mastercam. This post enables use of the Mach3 Mill tool table.
