Inkscape J-Tech Plugin Scale Issues

Hi guys, I’m trying to laser cut using the J-Tech plugin for X-Carve. I draw a 50mm square, convert to path, generate GCode, and get the following:

M05 S0

G90
G21
G1 F3000
G1 X0. Y14.0864
G4 P0
M03 S1200
G4 P0
G1 F100.000000
G1 X14.1242 Y14.0864
G1 X14.1242 Y0.
G1 X0. Y0.
G1 X0. Y14.0864
G4 P0
M05 S0
G1 F3000
G1 X0 Y0
M18

As you can see, it’s way too small. Any ideas?

Thanks John, turns out V .92 is not yet compatable with the J-Tech extension. I needed to use V .91: https://inkscape.org/en/release/0.91/platforms/

If you would like to move up to grbl 1.0c you can check out my grbl build.
