As per attached 2 images, my CAM program tells me that the toolpath is ok but when I import the code into Mach3 it has / cuts these circles around my part

What I do wrong?

I set the IJ Mode from Absolute to Inc and now all is fine

Thanks Alan and Hood

kolias, Dont feel bad, crop circles seem to pop up around here about once a month ;-)
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the passengers in the car! :-)
