How to use a diamond drag bit with Gemitsu 3018 PROVer

I've had my drag bit for a while now but have yet to be able to use it in the Gemitsu 3018 PROVer.
I've made a simple file (text) in Easel and exported the file to G-code (.nc file)
From what I've seen the file needs to have the M codes removed (which controls the spindle turning on/off)
I've imported the amended file into UGS but when I run it is keep stating that the soft limits have been reached: -

[Error] An error was detected while sending 'G1Z3.810F228.6': (ALARM:2) Soft limit alarm. G-code motion target exceeds machine travel. Machine position retained. Alarm may be safely unlocked. Streaming has been paused.
>> G1X14.448Y17.261F400.0
[MSG:Reset to continue]

I've tried it with Soft Limits disables ($20=0) but it makes no difference.
Also tried this with a simple LightBurn file (converted to g-code) but nothing worked then. (I hear that LightBurn may be introducing compatibility with drag bits soon)
Anyone help me to actually get the 3018 to work with the drag bit, please?
