Enter as much information about your CNC hardware and software as you can - it makes it easier for everyone to know what you're talking about then.
When using more than one tool from QuickCAM 3D I find that the spindle does not stop when asking for the 2nd tool.

This is a problem affecting version 1.4 QuickCAM Pro and QuickCAM 3D v3.4 - ie the current versions as of today 13th Feb 2006.
Both products had configurable post files added to let G-Code be created for any CNC machine.
The problem has appeared because the tool change section in the post file has an M05 missing.

To fix this problem until new versions are released:
Find the file Denford (Metric).ppl in
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Denford\Posts
Edit the file in a text editor (eg, notepad)
Find the section [Tool Change]
and insert M5 above the line G90 M6 like this:

M5
G90 M6 T{TOOL}
M03 S{SPINDLERPM}

btw you will need to turn on hidden files in order to find the post file:

in explorer goto Tools > Folder Options > View TAB - Show hidden files and folders
