On the export, make sure it's set the current WCS and not global WCS unless all of your programs are made in the top view

Now it visually looks ok. BUT i'm getting multiple G54's. I only need the one G54 on the Matsuura MX520. It has TWP .

You can set a default WOrk Offset or you can override the incoming work offsets, or, as it is set now, you are responsible.

CLose all sessions of CAMplete. Re-Open CAMplete. No project. Go to the Manage tab, go to the tools ribbon, then go to Options. Select the File Types Tab on the left. In the additional Options section section set the following preferences; 

NCI - Apply Tool CS To Datums (activate this)

NCI - Datum Index - Datum To Use. (You can set this to any number you want. 0 = G54, 1 = G55, 3 = G56, 6 = G54.1P1, 7 = G54.1 P2, etc... - I have mine set to 1)

NCI - Datum Index - Override Values (if you activate this, then you lose control in Mastercam - I have this deactivated)

NCI - Default Datum - Default Value (You can set this to any number you want. 0 = G54, 1 = G55, 3 = G56, 6 = G54.1P1, 7 = G54.1 P2, etc... - I have this set to 1)

NCI - Default Datum - Use Default Value when Datum Is 0 in NCI (if you activate this, then you lose control in Mastercam)

NCI - Use Cached Datums (activate this)

 

In the Advanced Properties I have Treat WCS Datums As Multiple Fixtures activated, and Read Datum Index From NCI activated. 

 

Click Close. 

Click Machines in the Resources Ribbon.

Select your machine. Click the Edit Button. In the Program CS tab, you'll see a CAM Index Column. By default they are all -1. Set G54 to 0, G55 to 1, G56 to 2, G57 to 3, etc... down as many as you want to set. 

Click OK. 

Click Close.

Exit CAMplete. 

 

You should be good to go after that.
