**General Mach Discussion / newbie problem cutting circle**

« **on:**October 25, 2011, 06:50:39 AM »

I'm new to this, but tried to use the wizard for cut circle.

When I try diameter 30 I get 56, on the display while cutting the numbers for X goes from -12,8 to +38, and for Y from -25,7 to +25,7.

This is quite frustrating, do anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong?
