You have it right.

In the first part of the program you are not telling the machine if the X move is rapid or feed.
Second, I would do the X move then the G52 on the next line.
Third, you are not canceling the G52 anywhere.

Make a casting of it while you have it.

I think I read that USB to parallel port doesn't work. That is why someone built the smooth stepper.

In ports and pins, motor outputs do you have the X, Y & Z axis enabled?

Your question as given was answered as best as possible. Had your question been accurate the answers would have been different.
Given the tolerances you posted, your part is a failure. Using the called tolerances, you made a good part. If you can't see the difference, .

You still have to many zeros after the decimal point. Your print only calls for +/-.002

Also on the "ports and pins/motor output"screen, the "Step Pin#, Dir Pin #, Step Port, and Dir Port are all left at the defaults of "0"

In Port Setup and Axis Selection you need to have Port #1 checked.
In Motor outputs you need a green check under enabled for X, Y & Z and a 1 in all of the boxes under Step Port and Dir Port.
Under Step Pin # you need a number for each axis. You need to know what pin connects to each axis step and put that number in the step box.
the same for the Dir Pin Number.
I am using 2 3 4 & 5 for step and 6 7 8 & 9 for dir.

In Screen4 (The screen building program) double click the G code screen. At the bottom of the pop up is a box where you set number of lines of code. Then you can size the box for the size text you want.

If you use heat sink paste and remove any coating from the PC case where you mount the Gecko, you can mount the Gecko inside and the heat sink on the outside.
