# Square becomes rectangle

If I draw a Square of 20 by 20 mm and burn this the program translates this in

20 mm with is correct but the Y is 20 x 2.3 = 46 mm.

I checked the G code and the code is telling that the square is a 20 x 46 mm thing

Question, what do I do wrong?

You need to adjust the steps / mm in the firmware.
Go to the console and type in \$\$. Check the value behind \$100 and adjust it accordinly.
Formula would be:
New steps = old steps / 46 * 20
Type in \$100 = New steps (the calculated value of course)

Example: You enter \$\$ and find the value behind \$100 is 160,
New steps = 160 / 46 * 20 = 69.565
You enter \$100=69.565 and press Enter.

Roy, Thank you for your fast response, I gone give it a try and keep you posted.

If the GCode days it’s 20 x 46 it’s not your steps. Do you have rotary mode enabled?

Roy, This is not the problem, the G Code is simply wrong, but thanks for your advice.

LightBurn Oz, Yes I had rotary mode enabled and after switching this OFF the program
made the perfect code and worked perfect, thanks very much for that.
Question, when do I enable rotary, only if a radius is programmed?
