GroundControl puts red and green circles on the screen each place that the z-axis moves down (red) or up (green) - are those what you’re seeing?

That looks to me like an issue with the post processor used to export the gcode not making gcode that Ground Control is happy with. There is a Maslow specific post processor for Fusion 360 which I would recommend trying

I see this topic has been flagged, not sure why? Did I poke the flag inadvertently?

I’m not sure, but I un-flagged it. I think it was probably flagged automatically

Edit: *unflaged it…I forgot the “un” and it really changed the meaning of my sentence

Link for the post processor?

After searching around on here I’ve found a couple of people with the same problem.

I don’t use Fusion, but I think this link might be a place to look.

how do you use the maslow post processor?

There is a link in wiki on how to add the post processor to Fusion360, and some other useful add-ins, dog-bone generator and a Nester script.
