A g1 is a move. The code needs to have an f followed by the desired feedrate somewhere before or along with the g1 to tell the controller the speed at which to make this move.

Did you select your correct tool in the MAD GUI? I have had this error when I have forgotten to do this.

There are two things in play here. First on the GUI screen, left side, middle screen and below....you need to set the material, thickness, consumables installed in the torch and below that, cut quality (16g and below, I prefer 3, above 16g, I use 5) and your settings should populate.

Second, to save the specific settings for a job, you can "save job" on the GUI screen. You can also edit a tool set deeper into the program but, lets get you up and running first.

Bear in mind that you need to set the parameters stated above every time you open MAD and or when you change materuals once open. This seems like a pain in the ass but it allows you to customize everything. Remember, these cnc machines are dumb and assume virtually nothing.....you need to fill in the blanks for it to work.

I'll be watching this thread.....maybe I can help.
