    Your code should have a G21 for Metric or a G20 for Inch, it will be in the first few lines of code but it's easy to search for,

    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    It says g21

    Your G-Code is set to metric, that should also cause Mach3 to switch to metric even if it's previously set to inch.
    Post the code up here and let's have a shuftie

    That code should not run no expert but line 110 looks incorrect

    I am no expert but looks ok to me apart from 2 "=" characters on 110 while they are there it should not do anything.

    As I read it it cuts inside first then bolt holes then external 20mm offset from internal
