Glad you solved it.

While I was pouring over your original code I found that N15 and N56 appear to be missing the decimal point also. It's a small thing.

N15 G0Z37.X21
N56 G1X80

Should likely be:

N15 G0Z37.X21.
N56 G1X80.

Does emc2 interpret those values as x21 or x0.0021?

I don't think that those decimal points should be there at all.

X21 is fine, and means move X to 21 (mm in this case).
To move to X=0.0021 you put X 0.0021.
I see no point using decimal points when there are no places of decimals.

Thanks for clarifying that. My Mori requires the decimal... so that is how my plotter is setup. B)
