How do I choose where the machine parks after a job?

Ideally I need to specify X, Y, and Z coordinates,
What program are you using to control the machine?

You would need to use a program which allows editing the post-processor to add the requisite movements.
Alternately, set safety/retract height so that the machine lifts high enough to clear any clamps.
