When you export the g-code, you select a post processor for your specific machine control. This  creates g-code that works for your specific machine. If you use the wrong post processor, there's a good chance that the g-code won't work.

Thanks , Got that bit sorted now :) But thats left me with another question im afraid , Can i change where the cnc starts to work on my design ? For example as thinks stand at the moment if i was to design a wagon wheel the cnc cuts round the outside first , is it possible to have the machine begin from a centre point and work out ?
