Not sure if this is your problem but check to see what post processor you are using when saving the tool path to a file. The title usually specifies 'in' or 'mm'. Also check to see if you are designing in inches or mm in the job setup.

Yes. Checked for inches in all applications. Same post processer for vcp which works good. Not sure why it puts in a g21 everyone I use this software. Thanks for your response.
