I am Making g-code for my X-Y plotter using inkscape. The problem is my g code is formed in negative and positive axis and my plotter only reads positive coordinates so a part of the sketch is not drawn by plotter.

HOW CAN I BRING THE WHOLE SKETCH IN POSITIVE AXIS PLEASE HELP.
Attached is the sketch from gcode.

I have done all work within specified boundaries.

Welcome to the forum!

Hhmm....  This could be a bit over my head.  But let's start with this.  Were you using Extensions menu > Gcodetools extensions?  Or another extension?  The Gcodetools extensions are the only native gcode tools in Inkscape.  But there are some extensions which you could install, which produce gcode.  So first I need to know exactly how you're doing it.
