In Aspire you start each job by setting where the origin is going to be relative to the outline of your workpiece. A corner or the center, top or bottom of the workpiece, and with or without an offset.
When you set up the workpiece on your CNC and touch off (make zero) X,Y, and Z axes they must be in the same place as they were in Aspire.

Some people get thrown off by the offset, not realizing it is shifting what it cuts by the X and Y amounts set for offset.

The correct post processor would be either EMC2 G64 (arcs) inch.ngc (or something similar) or a Probotix...something.ngc that probotix set you up with.

Note: There a lot of post processors listed for the many different manufacturers.

This is the post processor you would use.
EMC2-G64 Arcs (inch)-G54(*.ngc)

There a lot of Vectric training videos on YouTube. They have been very helpful to me.
