I use ArtCam and when I save my toolpaths I get this:
in the first three lines (raising my z beyond its capabilities)...I have to remove the second and third line for it to work correctly.
Can someone see anything wrong in the wincnc post processor below?

seems like your model origin is way off or something. I don't see anything wrong with the postp as far as I can tell. Have you tried saving it using some different postprocs to see if it still does these massive moves?
