Visual turn for geomagic with Mach3

When configuring Mach3 to be used with Visual turn, is it best to set the X Mode in Mach3 to radius or diameter?

By default machining preferences in VisualCAM -TURN module is set to radius mode. If you have the settings in Mach3 set to diameter mode, you would have to select the check box for Diameter mode programming under machining preferences in VisualCAM-TURN module. This would scale the X coordinate value in the posted code by 2.
