Gerry is correct the 0,0 point of origin is just that it does not mean the starting point of the Gcode sequence. NOW some CAMs do use 0,0 and some don't. Most of the time YOU have the option as to WHERE you want the code to start.

I can say that doing it that way is going to be hard to follow Gcode wise as you are working in negative numbers. IF you set the POO as the lower left then everything is in positive numbers.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

per my 1st post is why line N30 is generated on the gcode. I mean since the origin is at top right when the cutting starts there is no reason for the tool to go raised to -X10 and then to lower and start the cutting, its waste of time.

The above question was already answered in reply #4 to best of my ability. Don't waste your time looking for a deeper meaning or reason. LC does what it does, just accept that as best you can, and deal with it. I gave you some how to options.

Of course you are right Gerry

Finally after so long I discovered that I was drawing the square wrongly despite that my origin was at 0,0.

Now the gcode does not have the annoying X-10 on line N30 anymore

Thanks for your time
