Looks like Shopbot, but I've never used one.

Thank you, Gerry. I work for Boeing as a Machinist/Programmer, and have used Catia, Mastercam, Surfcam, Gibbscam, and Smartcam. There are a world of post processors,lol. The uses Aspire, so that's why I think Shopbot is the post. I tried a few different Shopbot posts, but they don't have the same beginning and ending codes.

I just looked in the Shopbot Manual.
&ZUp=1 assigns the value of 1 to the variable ZUp.

JZ,&ZUP means move the Z axis at jog speed to Z=1.

Thank you, Gerry. I was hoping to find out what Shopbot post it is, They have about 15 different ones that I know of. I posted code in 5 just to see if they compare, close but no cigar.

For what software? Aspire?
It's probably a custom post.

I thought of that, too, thank you.
