Hi Guys,

I'm having an issue with the Standard Drill machining operation in Rhinocam 2018 which didn't previously happen in our previous version (2016). After drilling a hole to the specified depth, instead of retracting up to the clearance plane height, then moving to the next hole, it is retracting up toward the coordinates of the next hole, skipping the usual retract move. I'm running Rhinocam 2018 out of Rhino 5 and posting to Multicam A2MC. Here's a snippet for four holes:

G90 G56
(Standard Drill )
N1 M6 T8
N2 G00 X84.991 Y107.940 F2000
N3 M3 S18000
N4 G1 Z16.600
N5 G0 X84.991 Y107.940
N6 G1 Z-1.000 F1000
N7 G1 X59.780 Y64.274 Z16.600 F2000
N8 G0 X59.780 Y64.274
N9 G1 Z-1.000 F1000
N10 G1 X141.003 Y261.832 Z16.600 F2000
N11 G0 X141.003 Y261.832
N12 G1 Z-1.000 F1000
N13 G1 X149.759 Y311.487 Z16.600 F2000
N14 G0 X149.759 Y311.487
N15 G1 Z-1.000 F1000
N16 G1 Z16.600 F2000
N17 M5
N18 G28
N19 M30

Could you please help me rectify the issue?
Thanks heaps!

Can you make sure you have Always output as linear motions selected under CAM Preferences - Machining for Drill cycle output?
If you are still having an issue, please include the part file and a copy of your post processor.
