              Your material width is set to 23", The file is showing it will carve the right and left lines 21.5" apart, from what I see it looks correct. Maybe you should go to https://forum.vectric.com/ and explain your problem there and let some of the more experienced individuals look at it and explain what you think is wrong, it looks correct to me but I am pretty new at this. Sorry I could not be of more help.

                      21 9/16th sound about right. You have it set to cut on the line at 21.5" cutting at a depth of .0313 with a 60 degree v bit. The way I calculate it the line you cut is going to be .05 wide (.025 on both sides of the center point of the line). So the measurement from outside of the lines should be 21.55", 21 9/16= 21.56. Hope I don't confuse you, I'll add a picture to help clarify. 60 degree V bit.PNG

                        If you measure from the right side on the first line and to the right side of the second line it should be 21.5 correct ?

                            Yes to the measurement. Strange that it is cutting a little long on the Y. Not sure I can help, sorry.
